A VIRTUAL MOVIE SCREENING SERIES SHOWCASING INDEPENDENT FILMS!
Join FanQuest Nation as we present our love of B Horror Movie Classics through our Virtual Event Series: Slashtastic Saturday!
Through our collaboration with Wild Eye Productions and Fourth Horizon Cinema, we bring you a selection of B Movie Films to enjoy. This event currently focuses on horror movies, but many genres (e.g., action, thriller, etc.) are coming soon.
The inaugural event offered a screening of camp slasher parody, Caesar and Otto’s Summer Camp Massacre. Special guest appearances included Dave Campfield the film’s award-winning Director, Producer Paul Chomicki, and leading actress Felissa Rose, star of the iconic film Sleepaway Camp.
The night begins with a panel introduction that may include the films’ Director, Producer, Lead Actors, and others who took part in making the film. Our guests set up the story and share experiences about making the movie. We then watch the movie along with our guest panel who engage with movie viewers through our interactive chat by answering questions and telling behind-the-scenes stories about certain aspects of the movie.
Throughout the event, fans have opportunities to ask questions to the filmmakers, win prizes, enjoy trivia activities, and interact with the guest panel at the end of the film.
HOT SAUCE CHALLENGE
PUT YOUR TASTE BUDS (AND YOUR FRIENDS') TO THE TEST AND JOIN US FOR OUR VIRTUAL HOT SAUCE CHALLENGE.
In collaboration with our Sponsor, Sauce Daddys, we show guests multiple sauce varieties for them to learn about and then try their tolerance at tasting each one.
The evening includes a different sauce challenges chosen for the event theme. Our host describes each sauce and how it can be used with different foods and in many recipes. After the history on each bottle, guests take the taste challenge. For the tastings, we ask each guest to turn on their cameras so we can capture each person's reaction to the sauce.
Guests participate by purchasing tickets to the event. We have a limited number of tickets available due to wanting to capture guest reactions on the Webex camera. Prizes are given to guests who reach a certain level; we also feature raffle drawings with prizes provided by our sponsors. Other prizes are also given randomly to guests who take videos or photos of themselves or friends attempting to eat the hot sauces.
Coming soon - special guests will be featured to participate in the hot sauce challenge with our attendees.
Guests are asked to post their attempt on social media and tag two friends for a chance to win prizes. #FQNbeattheheat.
