BFI Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder comes to Film Hub Central East

Film Hub Central East, led by Broadway and Cambridge Film Trust, have revealed a collaborative programme of screenings and events to take place in the Central East region this autumn, as part of the BFI’s Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder.

Between September and December, audiences will have a chance to discover and take part in a spectacular one-of-a-kind season and celebration of Sci-Fi presented by the Hub in collaboration with Hub members across the region. Workshops, discussions, and screenings of titles exclusive to the BFI’s season will aim to engage dialogue and offer a unique perspective on the Sci-Fi genre.

In Milton Keynes, the Independent Cinema Milton Keynes at the MK Gallery will present Don’t Panic!, 12 consecutive weekly special events between October and December, exploring classic and modern Sci-Fi films, working with musicians, artists, workshop leaders and science lecturers.

Also in Milton Keynes, Bletchley Park will host Station X on 8 November – a full day of immersive screenings and themed workshops.

In Norfolk, Creative Arts East and their Village Screen network will reach out to six venues in the county’s rural community to present high quality screenings of Sci-Fi titles including A Trip to the Moon. The screenings will take place between October and December.

In Nottingham, Sci-Fact will take over the spectacular Keighton Auditorium at the University of Nottingham on 25 October with a screening of Gattaca, day of talks and live experiments intended to help audiences understand the science behind the fiction, de-bunk myths, and see how film has influences scientific thinking. Throughout the day, Sci-Fact will explore the themes of time travel, genetics and cloning, climate change, contagion, and many others.

Also in Nottingham, Mayhem Film Festival in partnership with Associate Programme Sarah Lutton, will explore the theme of The Created Woman over a three-day event, taking place at Broadway. Through screenings of classic and contemporary sci-fi titles, including Metropolis, The Stepford Wives and Solaris, and discussion panels, the event will approach the themes of creating the “perfect” woman, creation gone wrong and the “monstrous” woman, wives and daughters, and conjuring the woman.

Finally, working in partnership with Hollywood Cinemas, Abbeygate Cinema, and Broadway Letchworth, the Hub will be presenting over 40 high quality screenings of Sci-Fi titles in Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Fakenham, Letchworth, and Dereham.

Eleanor Thornley, Film Hub Central East Manager, says: “Film Hub Central East is excited to announce our involvement in Sci-Fi Days of Fear and Wonder, we are so happy to be giving local audiences the chance to engage in national moments such as this.“

Bobby Lockwood, Louisa Connolly-Burnham and Lis Steele to join Teen Mayhem Wolfblood panel

Mayhem Film Festival have confirmed three additional members of the cast and crew will join the Wolfblood panel taking place on Saturday 25 October at Broadway as part of Teen Mayhem.

Bobby Lockwood (Rhydian), fresh from winning BBC One’s Tumble, Louisa Connolly-Burnham (Shannon), and Executive Producer, Lis Steele, will be joining the CBBC-hit creator Debbie Moon, and co-star Kedar Williams-Stirling (Tom) for the exclusive event, which will include the screening of one episode from the show followed by an extensive Q&A.

The event is part of Teen Mayhem, a day of fantasy, horror and sci-fi dedicated to pre-teens and young teenagers. Including SFX make-up workshops, special screenings of Japanese anime Patema Inverted (U) and Joe Dante’s The Hole (12A) in 3D, as well as the Wolfblood panel, Teen Mayhem marks the start of Mayhem X, a one-of-a-kind ten-day celebration of genre TV and cinema, coinciding with Mayhem Film Festival’s 10th anniversary.

Chris Cooke, Mayhem Co-Director, says: "We all fell in love with horror, science fiction and fantasy when we were younger and Teen Mayhem is a chance for those younger fans to really indulge their passion. It allows them to learn more about the genre, have fun and meet fellow fans, as well as to meet the team responsible for one of CBBC's biggest hit series, Wolfblood, to learn the craft of horror make-up and to catch a couple of really stunning films."

Tickets and day passes for Teen Mayhem are now available at http://www.broadway.org.uk/groups/teen_mayhem. If considering the day pass please note The Hole is certificated 12A and therefore recommended for children aged 12 or above. Films classified 12A contain material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child.

Mayhem X is made possible with the support of the BFI Film Festival Fund, awarding funds from The National Lottery. For more information about Mayhem please visit http://www.broadway.org.uk/mayhem
