World Premiere of Larry Fessenden’s DEPRAVED is our Opening Night Film!

Opening night of What The Fest!? will feature the World Premiere of Larry Fessenden’s latest film DEPRAVED, his unique take on the classic Frankenstein story — this time, set in contemporary Brooklyn. Preceding the film will be a ‘Frankenstein Origins’ video presentation, and Fessenden and cast will appear in-person for a post-screening Q&A.

“We are absolutely thrilled to announce the line-up of What The Fest!? We hope the diversity in programming gives food for thought, excites everyone and we encourage you to take a closer look on some of the events designed for the films,” says Artistic Director, Maria Reinup. “Discover what a doomsday specialist has to tell us. Dare to plunge into the world of pathology. Test the expertise of a working stuntwoman. Or pay tribute to cult author Jack Ketchum. All of this, and more, kicking off with a Frankenstein-themed evening as we world premiere DEPRAVED. On behalf of the team and myself — we really can’t wait to see you in the cinema!”
