Frightfest moves to Shepherds Bush

FrightFest, the UK’s biggest and most popular genre film festival, will relocate to the Vue Shepherd’s Bush, London, for its annual 5-day August Bank Holiday event, taking over all twelve screens between Aug 25 – 29, 2016.

In a two-year deal with Vue Entertainment, the festival has the option to return to the Vue Leicester Square in 2017, following maintenance to the venue.

FrightFest co-director Ian Rattray said today: “After much consideration, and in consultation with the Vue Management, we decided the 12-auditoria establishment in Shepherd’s Bush would not only fit our demanding bill, but give us a whole new raft of exciting opportunities to expand all the core FrightFest entertainment values. Our continuing, collaborative partnership with Vue means that FrightFest can grow and continue to offer film-goers a unique cinematic experience”.

Daniel Goodwin, Events Manager for Vue Entertainment added: “We are delighted to see the return of FrightFest and proud to host this sought after and iconic event for another frighteningly brilliant film festival”.
