Broadway to welcome back director Ben Wheatley for FREE FIRE preview

Acclaimed director Ben Wheatley will return to Broadway, Nottingham, on Tuesday 7 March for a preview screening of his latest film, Free Fire, followed by a Q&A with Mayhem Film Festival’s Co-Director, Steven Sheil.

The event will take place ahead of the nationwide release of the film on Friday 31 March. Free Fire is Ben Wheatley’s sixth feature, following High-Rise, which the director also came to present in Nottingham last spring. Free Fire is a guns blazing action thriller set in 1978 Boston when a deal to buy a stash of guns goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Starring Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Armie Hammer, Sam Riley, Sharlto Copley and Enzo Cilenti, Free Fire, is the unmissable cinematic standoff of the year.

It’s always a pleasure to partner up with our friends at Mayhem Film Festival to welcome Ben Wheatley, says Melissa Gueneau, Press & Marketing Coordinator at Broadway. We’ve been impatiently waiting for Free Fire ever since it closed the London Film Festival last autumn so we’re excited to finally bring it to Broadway.”

Ben Wheatley will be at Broadway, Nottingham, on Tuesday 7 March for a preview screening of Free Fire followed by a Q&A with Steven Sheil, from 8PM. For more information and to book tickets, please call Broadway’s box office on 0115 952 6611 or visit http://www.broadway.org.uk/events/film-free-fire-plus-qanda

Broadway to host acclaimed director Gurinder Chadha

Broadway will welcome acclaimed director Gurinder Chadha on Saturday 4 March for a screening of her latest film, Viceroy’s House, followed by an on-stage Q&A.


Gurinder Chadha (Bhaji on the Beach, Bend It Like Beckham) will be in conversation with Broadway’s Programme Director, Caroline Hennigan, on Saturday 4 March, following the 2.45PM screening of Viceroy’s House. Starring Hugh Bonneville and Gillian Anderson, Viceroy’s House, recounts the final months of the British rule in India in 1947, as conflict erupts between the political elite in charge of the future of the country and the hundreds of Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants who also share the last Viceroy’s house. A deeply personal film for Gurinder Chadha, Viceroy’s House examines those events through the prism of both a marriage and a romance, as the lovers find themselves caught up in the seismic end of an Empire and the Partition of India.


Broadway is extremely proud to welcome such an acclaimed and original filmmaker. Gurinder Chadha is an incredibly important voice in the British film and TV landscape and we can’t wait to share her new film with our audience.” says Caroline Hennigan, Broadway’s Programme Director.


Gurinder Chadha will be at Broadway, Nottingham on Saturday 4 March for a screening of Viceroy’s House with Q&A at 2.45PM. For more information and to book tickets please contact Broadway’s box office on 0115 952 6611, or visit http://www.broadway.org.uk/events/film-viceroys-house

Made at Broadway film PAA JOE & THE LION is heading to SXSW

Broadway-based filmmaker Ben Wigley is heading to the prestigious SXSW (South by Southwest) film and music festival with his film Paa Joe & the Lion.

Paa Joe & the Lion will have its North American premiere in Austin, TX in March, alongside an impressive line-up of documentaries, fiction features and gala events, including Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, Michael Winterbottom’s On the Road and Terrence Malick’s Song to Song.

Paa Joe & The Lion tells the story of Paa Joe, also known as the Grandfather of Ghana’s fantasy coffin trade – an artist and pioneer of the fantasy coffin who, although celebrated the world over, is struggling to survive back in Ghana. Broadway-based filmmaker, Benjamin Wigley, embarked on a five-year journey across Ghana and the UK to uncover the story of this extraordinary craftsman.

Developed through Documentary Campus Masterschool with the support of Worldview, and made with the support of Creative England and Kickstarter, Paa Joe & The Lion premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June, before returning to Broadway last August for a gala screening preceded by a procession and followed by a Q&A with director Ben Wigley, Paa Joe himself and his son Jacob.

SXSW takes place in Austin, TX on 10-19 March 2017. To find out more information about Paa Joe & the Lion, please visit www.paajoeandthelion.com. To follow the team’s adventures, join them on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
