For The Love Of Movies: The Chattanooga Film Festival

Chattanooga Film Festival 2024 banner.
Chattanooga Film Festival

Once upon a time, these words flickered across the cathode ray landscapes at the dawn of television:

“You're traveling through another dimension = a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Your next stop: The Twilight Zone.”

This month’s Chattanooga Film Festival will pay tribute to Rod Serling, creator of TV’s “The Twilight Zone” - when it returns with its hybrid schedule of in-person and virtual screenings starting Saturday June 21st.

Chris Dortch II is the festival’s director and lead film programmer.


WUTC is now giving away a few VIP passes to this year’s Chattanooga Film Festival.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
