Grimmfest Easter launched in 2021 as an annual event, taking place over the Easter Weekend, and complimenting the long-established festival in October. The initial Easter festival was online only, due to the Covid-19 Lockdown in the UK. But 2022 sees it going live at regular host venue the Odeon Great Northern in Manchester UK, screening exclusive feature film premieres, together with Q&As and talks.
Grimmfest Easter will be a hybrid event with an online element, which will complement and sit alongside the live festival. Much of the content will cross both events but there will also be one or two online exclusives.
Grimmfest Easter offers all the cinematic thrills, spills, and chills, all the blood and black comedy that you have come to expect from Grimmfest, but in a leaner, meaner, more concentrated form. Something to satisfy even the most jaded of palates. Here are some highlights:
