STARBURST Film Festival to screen Liam Regan's BANJO

STARBURST is proud to announce another amazing film screening at this year’s STARBURST International Film Festival - the riotously gross (and award-winning) Banjo, directed by Liam Regan and starring James Hamer-Morton, Damian Morter, Dani Thompson, Dan Palmer, and Laurence R. Harvey.

After a successful screening at last year’s FrightFest, and prior to a DVD release in the US, we will be presenting the film on the big screen, with the wonderful Mr Harvey in attendance.

For those who haven’t come across the film, here’s the official synopsis:

Meet Peltzer Arbuckle, a meek and bullied office employee, humiliated by his megalomaniac boss, teasing colleagues and his cheating partner. Peltzer spends his days in misery, stuck in his own mundane, nightmarish reality.

Once news about his embarrassing sexual accident makes its way around the workplace, Peltzer decides to put up with his humiliation no more and conjures up his childhood imaginary friend Ronnie. Peltzer's world is soon turned upside down when Ronnie attempts to manipulate him to exact revenge on his tormenting co-workers in the most gruesome fashion.

As the body count stacks up, Peltzer must ultimately decide whether to run away from his past or take control of his future, as he battles between sanity and madness, in this twisted tale of infidelity, revenge and snapped banjo strings.

You must have the Adobe Flash Player installed to view this player.

Banjo will screen on the Sunday of the festival, and you can purchase both weekend and a limited number of day passes now from http://www.starburstfilmfest.co.uk/festival-tickets, but these are going fast!

The festival kicks off on Friday afternoon and is packed with screenings, guests, and special fringe events as well as more entertainment than you could possibly handle. Don’t miss out.
