The Chattanooga Film Festival has announced two films to be screened at the four-day festival slated for April 3-6 at Carmike Majestic Cinema. Badges for the festival are also available for pre-sale.

"The Congress" stars Robin Wright (of "House of Cards" and "The Princess Bride") as an aging Hollywood actress who is promised eternal youth if she "uploads" her being and submits ownership of it to a Hollywood studio.

"Mood Indigo" is the latest work of French director Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"). "Mood Indigo" is a love story set in Paris about a couple whose love is tested when Chloe (played by Audrey Tautou of Amelie) develops an unusual illness: a flower begins to grow in her lungs.

“These are really going to wow our audience," said Chris Dortch, the Festival's director.

The Chattanooga Film Festival badges are being offered on pre-sale on the Festival's website starting today. Three levels of badges will be available, from the basic Filmlover to a VIP access badge. Aside from the film screenings, Festival activities will include industry panels, after hours screenings, and parties.

“Our price points are competitive with festivals of our size, and we are extremely proud of what each badge offers,” Dortch said in a press release.
