WTF is the What The Fest at the IFC Center


Cult classics and new oddities collide at the What The Fest happening at the IFC Center (323 6th Ave, New York, NY) from March 29 to April 1st, 2018. Specializing in odd works of horror, sci-fi, documentary,  thrillers, and more, What The Fest includes a wide range of titles and features.

Films include Valley of Shadows, a Scandinavian Gothic fable shot on 35mm, about a small boy who sets out into the deep, dark woods in search of a mysterious creature (Filmmaker Jonas Matzow Gulbrandsen will appear in-person for a post-screening Q&A). In The Endless  two brothers return to the cult they fled years ago, only to discover that the group's beliefs may make much more sense than they once thought. For those looking for the lost instead of the new, special screenings include Curse of Snakes Valley (colloquially known as the Soviet Indiana Jones) with a world premiere restoration.
