Along with many other delays due to Corona Virus breakout, Florida’s annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival will be rescheduled to October. The sixth annual edition will take place October 1-4, 2020.
“Popcorn Frights is committed to being a part of the solution to help slow down the recent spike in numbers of COVID-19 cases in the state of Florida and across the country, and we remain committed to the safety of audiences, staff, and the community at large,” explains the release.
“While the postponement is regretful and was not made lightly, moving the Festival from August is the safest thing for our audiences and filmmakers. We stand in solidarity with leading cultural institutions and other film festivals, as well as the CDC, by taking proactive steps towards combating the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.”
Due to the delay Popcorn Frights has extended its deadline to August 16.
