Chattanooga Film Festival Celebrates "The Twilight Zone" with Top 5 Time Travel Episodes

As the Chattanooga Film Festival (CFF) gears up for its upcoming run, the theme of this year's event takes audiences on a journey back in time to the iconic world of "The Twilight Zone." Recently, CFF unveiled their top five favorite time travel episodes from the renowned television series, adding to the anticipation for CFF2024.

In homage to the legendary creator of "The Twilight Zone," Rod Serling, whose centenary would have been in 2024, CFF plans to celebrate with special contributions from Serling's daughter, Anne Serling, and acclaimed author and TV critic Mark Dawidziak, known for his work on the series.

Following the earlier reveal of all-time favorite episodes, CFF now delves into the realm of time travel, a recurring theme throughout "The Twilight Zone's" historic five-year run on television. Each episode selected for this list showcases the timeless allure and narrative depth of the series.

Among the top picks is "Walking Distance" (Season 1, Ep 5), a poignant tale written by Serling himself, exploring themes of nostalgia and longing. "The Last Flight" (Season 1, Ep 18) presents a gripping narrative of a World War I pilot thrust into a future he doesn't recognize, crafted by acclaimed writer Richard Matheson.

Other notable episodes include "Execution" (Season 1, Ep 6), featuring Russell Johnson in a tale of Old West justice, and "The Trouble with Templeton" (Season 2, Ep 9), portraying an aging actor's journey into his own past.

Rounding out the selection is "A Hundred Yards Over the Rim" (Season 2, Ep 23), starring Cliff Robertson in a gripping tale of survival and discovery.

As CFF2024 draws near, fans can anticipate more exciting announcements and events inspired by "The Twilight Zone." Stay tuned for further updates from the festival, set to captivate audiences with its homage to timeless storytelling.
