Mayhem returns to Broadway this autumn
It’s time to save the date! Mayhem Film Festival will return this autumn at Broadway from 13 – 16 October.
With previews, premieres, special guests and midnight screenings, Mayhem Film Festival showcases the best in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through feature films, short films and special events.
In previous editions, Mayhem has welcomed many filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg for a special screening of Don’t Look Now at St Mary’s Church, Ben Wheatley for a preview screening of Sightseers, Gareth Edwards for Monsters, and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Sherlock) for a special masterclass. Mayhem Film Festival has also hosted exclusive events such as screenings with specially-commissioned live scores from 8MM Orchestra, and a one-of-a-kind live reading of unmade Hammer Films screenplay, The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula.
Now in its 12th year, the festival has grown from a single short film programme to a four-day event and continues to expand its programme to highlight emerging talents and new bold titles from the darker edges of film.
Planning is currently underway for Mayhem Film Festival 2016 with more information and announcements coming soon. Submissions for feature films will open in the spring. Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 13 – 16 October 2016. For more information about Mayhem please visit http://www.broadway.org.uk/mayhem
