I'd think it would be at the same time as the film-line up is announced (usually around the end of June).

On a recent podcast Adam Green said he would be going overseas to a film festival at the end of the summer.....

He's kind of a fixture at Frightfest (although not last year). :lol:

Hmmmm good question. Unlike the last 3 years I have literally no idea over the big e-ticket guest.

I think with Hatchet III floating around the block, Mr Green is a dead cert (will be great to spill a beer with him again), and with Joe's KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM in an existential limbo- maybe a gala screening of that if they work out legal logistics in time. Guest event? The Return Of The Douche Brothers.

Would be pretty amazing.

Other than that, there are no big 'returns to horror' [ie last year Dario was *meant* to be presenting Dracula] from these classic directors, so it's really hard to judge. Time will tell. And by time I mean ONE MONTH AND ALL WILL BE REVEALED.

They announce the film line-up tomorrow at 2pm I think ... normally some guests are also announced although others probably close to the time.

They already announced that there will be no Total Film Icon this year, but I seem to remember the 26th being the date for the guests announced.

Did they? I thought they were still trying to get someone for the Total Film Icon :?:

If that's the case, I assume the films are going to be bunched up a bit more for Friday then? Otherwise we've got a gap of nearly 2 hours after the second film.

Yeah, it's been announced on here somewhere (deep in a thread). The 'slack' will be taken up with short films before main features as there's no short film showcase either.

But there still could be a major interview without Total Films involvement..? Or has the whole idea been scrapped?

Difficult one to be honest. You could read the statement as "There will be no on-stage interview slot that we've come to know in previous years" or as "Total Film will not be sponsoring the 'icon' segment this year"

Ian's pretty straight talking though, so I'd guess at the former.

Total Film's logo is on the 2013 poster as a sponsor, so it would be odd for them to drop out of the headline slot they usually have. Times change though.
