Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Got to pick seats - cards declined (they all have sufficient funds).

A disgrace.

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Vue management have clearly made a decision in advance not to sell festival passes over the phone - so why not put a message to that affect on the phone line before we queue? 10p a minute, that's why. :evil:

I have to say Vue's customer service leaves a lot to be desired too. 35 minute wait to get no answer at all, not so much as an apology.
You were lucky - I got told to call back "in the week!"

It's just poor planning (on behalf of Vue - obviously not FF).
Agreed. Vue have seriously let FF down here.

Has anyone managed to buy a festival pass online yet?

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Just to confirm what others have been saying: I finally got through on the phones and was told they can't sell festival passes over the phone. Website is still broken; they say it's the weight of traffic.

Jeez - how hard can it be to give someone £340?! :lol:

What a shambles. The FF ticketing page lists a number for phone bookings.

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Looks like Vue are making 10p a minute out of all of us on the 'phone due to the website not working. Hmmm... :roll:

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

As of 11am, the Vue website is stating that tickets are on sale in 2 hours - does that mean they're available at 1pm, not noon as expected?

Re: How Film4 FrightFest will work in 2014

Sounds like a lot of thought has gone into how to make the enforced changes work. I doubt there's a perfect solution, but this should be the best way forward. Can't wait to see how it all pans out.

Now, off to sort some childcare for 5 days in August... :D

Re: Was FF 13 any worse or better than other years?

Great post!

One way to up those averages and avoid some of the “barrel scrapers” would be to reduce the duration of the festival. On balance though I think I’d still rather a five day jolly and risk some stinkers than have it cut short.

Thank goodness common sense has prevailed - shame it had to go this far though.

Re: Larry Fessenden—Is a video of the full interview availab

I too missed this, and having subsequently spoken to the man himself a couple of times after the event at FF I regret it. He seemed a very cool bloke.

Re: Short film showcase

I thought they were not as strong as last years, which were really great. Still some very entertaining pieces though, and I agree Brutal Relax was great fun.
