This year's Chattanooga Film Festival is taking place online because of the global Covid-19 pandemic. It's open to residents of The United States only, and festival badges can be purchased here. It includes the usual eclectic mix of genre films and the strange and unusual, with a distinctly quirky flavour.

The festival runs from 22 May to 24 May.
