One of the new — and potentially hilarious — features at this year’s event will be “Scripts Gone Wild.” Founded at the Chattanooga Film Festival, it’s a script reading series in which celebs, filmmakers and influencers are given a script and some alcohol in front of a live audience. This will take place on Friday evening of the festival.
“We’re still locking down our special guests,” said Seth Ingram, the RIFF’s festival director. “We’ll have some celebs as well as filmmakers and locals. We get to pick the scripts so it’ll be really entertaining.”
