Event News

Mayhem Film Festival returns to Broadway Cinema in Nottingham on 31 October – 3 November with a great line-up of special screenings, previews and guests. 

The opening night sees legendary director Nicolas Roeg (Performance, Walkabout, The Man Who Fell to Earth) present his most recent film Puffball as well as taking part in a very special screening of his doom-laden Venice-set masterpiece Don’t Look Now.

Other special guests include American Director Brian Netto who will be presenting Delivery; The Borderlands Director Elliot Goldner and Producer Jennifer Handorf, and Director Caradog James and Producer John Giwa-Amu for hi-tech British dark sci-fi The Machine. Mayhem are also pleased to host a special BAFTA screening of Jeremy Lovering’s In Fear which follows a young couple being tormented while driving in the countryside.

This year Mayhem will present their first silent film screening, Tod Browning’s classic The Unknown with a specially commissioned original score by 8MM Orchestra. Other highlights include screenings of cult classics Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce (1985) and the Aussie Wake in Fright (1971), preview screenings of Haunter from Cube Director Vincenzo Natali, 70s disco slasher Discopath, Belgo-French production The Strange Colour of your Body’s Tears, pre-CGI DIY homage The Demon’s Rook, vampire tale Kiss of the Damned, Spanish dark fairy tale Painless, and Israeli horror Big Bad Wolves from the makers of Rabies.

Sounds like a great line-up. For more details and tickets www.broadway.org.uk
