The short film line-up for Arrow Video FrightFest has been announced, which includes a fantastic mix of well-known faces and unknown talent and weird and wonderful films from around the world.
Among the titles to look forward to are We Summoned a Demon directed by Chris McInroy, Sarah Talbot’s Secretion, Adria Tennor’s Pie, Heidi Lee Douglas’ Devil Woman and Ashlea Wessel’s Tick. Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) stars in Tom de Ville’s Corvidae, and Alice Lowe appears in the demonic Salt.
Of particular interest to us at STARBURST are European Premieres for Jill Gevargizian’s 42 Counts, Izzy Lee’s My Monsters, and Brian Lonano’s BFF Girls. Filmmakers and shorts we’ve championed from their inception.
Other films worth checking out are Joanne Mitchell’s directorial debut Sybil, in which the star (and partner) of Dominic Brunt’s films Before Dawn, Bait, and Attack of the Adult Babies goes behind the camera to give us the off-beat story of a mortician finding herself in an odd love triangle.
Other shorts in the popular showcase slots that are receiving either their UK, European or World Premieres include David Malcolm’s Mannequins, Anneké Cullen’s The Lonely World, Malcolm Rumbles’ Fran and the Moth, Sian Harries’ Neckface, Tom de Ville’s Corvidae, Right Place Wrong Tim (starring Adam Buxton and Asa Butterfield), directed by Eros Vlahos (best known as Nico in the TV series Da Vinci’s Demons), Hanna Bergholm’s Puppet Master, Alberto Correder’s Baghead, Ben Larned’s Payment World, Tom Nicoll’s The Cost of Living, Lee Kyoungmi’s The Lady from 406, Teal Greyhavens’ Special Day and Envy, directed by Sam Hoggarth.
Arrow Video FrightFest takes place in London between August 23rd and 27th. For full details of the short film showcase strains and to buy tickets, head over to www.frightfest.co.uk.
