MAYHEM festival is back! Can’t believe it’s been 10 years already but in saying that the festival has got better each year in my opinion. Early bird full weekend discounted tickets go on sale June 24th so get your tickets as with previous years many of the showings do sell out. What sets MAYHEM aside from other festivals for me is the fact that as well as showing some new releases it throws many a curveball and grabs classics, obscure flicks as well as the best in new talent. As well as the Quiz, Merchandise stalls and a horror themed disco! So keep your eyes on the site for titles and very special guests that will be at this year’s festival, I have stuck the press release below along with the links you need. More news coming soon,
Mayhem Film Festival prepares for anniversary
Mayhem Film Festival returns to Broadway this autumn to take you on a fantastic journey beyond the dark edges of film. Taking place from 30 October to 2 November, Mayhem will be celebrating 10 years of eeriness with previews, special events, midnight screenings, new releases and special guests.
Over the last decade, Mayhem has grown from a single short film programme to a four-day event, screening the best horror, sci-fi and cult shorts and features from around the world. The ever-growing festival saw its most successful edition last year with its biggest ever audience and exceptional events such as a screening of Don’t Look Now at St Mary’s Church with British director Nicolas Roeg, and a screening of silent film The Unknown with a specially-commissioned live score by Nottingham band 8MM Orchestra.
Plans for Mayhem’s 10th anniversary are already under way and discounted early bird passes will go on sale on 24 June at 10AM for the more eager Mayhem fans.
Mayhem are also on the look-out for scary shorts. Very much at the heart of the festival, the shorts programme is one of Mayhem’s most popular features, showcasing the best local, national and international shorts on the circuit. The call for scary shorts is now open and filmmakers can submit their entry for free until Friday 29 August.
