Previously known as the Women In Horror Film Festival, the RENEGADE FILM FESTIVAL launches with its new moniker on March 3, 2022. This is a big step in signaling the return of Film Festivals nationwide. Ironically, the festival was the last Film Festival the Grue-Crew attended before COVID turned the world upside down in 2020 when HNR co-host Christopher G. Moore debuted his short horror film, BACKWARD CREEP – which happens to co-star Gruesome Magazine co-host Crystal Cleveland and Heroes & Droids co-host Vanessa! Check out the official selections below. We hope to see you there!
Renegade Film Fest Announces OFFICIAL SELECTIONS
The Renegade Film Festival is gearing up for its first LIVE event under the new name, March 3-5,
2022 at the historic Earl Smith Strand Theatre on the Marietta Square in Atlanta, GA. Notifications
have gone out and the OFFICIAL SELECTIONS have been announced. The Renegade Film Fest
website ( www.renegadefilmfest.com ) has been updated with the official selections, schedule of events,
links to purchase tickets and info on hotel accommodations for out of town guests. Fest director
Vanessa Wright said, “I’m so thrilled to be back at the Strand for a live event. It’s been a long two
years and I think everyone is craving and needing this.”
The fest will be screening six feature films and seventy-three short films over the course of the three
day event, including special screenings of the documentary WOLFMAN’S GOT NARDS co-written
and directed by The Monster Squad’s Andre Gower and the Blumhouse/Universal hit film,
FREAKY, Starring Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton. Gower is scheduled to be at the fest for a
special Q&A following his film as well as Freaky writer, Michael Kennedy, who will also be at the
fest for the screening as well as the Q&A immediately following the film.
In addition to the films, there are 23 combined short and feature screenplays whose writers are being
celebrated as finalists. All of the scores have been tabulated and winners will be announced Saturday,
March 5, 2022 at the awards ceremony, hosted by Wright and writer/director Adam Marcus (Jason
Goes to Hell, Texas Chainsaw, Secret Santa)
Fest director Vanessa Wright is extremely proud to announce that that 76% of the films screening in
March are directed by a woman, BIPOC or member of the LGBTQIA+ community. “Representation
matters, visibility matters; we are learning and we are growing and constantly evolving, and we invite
you to be a part of the revolution,” says Wright.
Tickets are available NOW, through the Strand Box office and by visiting the Renegade Film Fest
