Win a copy of Sony's CERTAIN WOMEN from the Criterion Collection

Sony's CERTAIN WOMEN is released on Monday 25 September through the Criterion Collection, and we have a copy of this beautiful edition to give away to one lucky winner.

To be in with a chance to win, simply send us the answer to the following question as well as your name and address at competition@broadway.org.uk

What is the name of the director of CERTAIN WOMEN?

You can find more information about the special edition below. Deadline for entry is midnight on Tuesday 26 September.

The expanses of the American Northwest take centre stage in this intimately observed triptych from KELLY REICHARDT (Meek’s Cutoff). Adapted from three short stories by MAILE MELOY and unfolding in self-contained but interlocking episodes, CERTAIN WOMEN navigates the subtle shifts in personal desire and social expectation that unsettle the circumscribed lives of its characters: a lawyer (Blue Velvet’s LAURA DERN) forced to subdue a troubled client; a woman (Manchester by the Sea’s MICHELLE WILLIAMS) whose plans to construct her dream home reveal fissures in her marriage; and a night-school teacher (Personal Shopper’s KRISTEN STEWART) who forms a tenuous bond with a lonely ranch hand (LILY GLADSTONE), whose unguardedness and deep attachment to the land deliver an unexpected jolt of emotional immediacy. With unassuming craft, Reichardt captures the rhythms of daily life in small-town Montana through these fine-grained portraits of women trapped within the landscape’s wide-open spaces.

2016 • 107 MINUTES • COLOR • 5.1 SURROUND • 1.85:1 ASPECT RATIO

Broadway to welcome director Peter Mackie Burns for preview of DAPHNE + Q&A

Director and co-writer Peter Mackie Burns will tour award-winning new film DAPHNE starring Emily Beecham (HAIL, CAESAR!) ahead of its 29 September cinema release. Set to be one of this year’s best-loved British films, a special preview screening of DAPHNE with a filmmaker Q&A will take place on Thursday 28 September at 6pm.

Caught in the daily rush of her restaurant job and a nightlife kaleidoscope of new faces, Daphne is witty, funny, the life of the party. Too busy to realise that deep down she is not happy. When she saves the life of a shopkeeper stabbed in a failed robbery, the impenetrable armour she wears to protect herself begins to crack, and Daphne is forced to confront the inevitability of a much-needed change in her life.

Directed by Mackie Burns who co-wrote alongside Nico Mensinga, DAPHNE also stars Geraldine James (THE GIRL WITH DRAGON TATTOO), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (PEAKY BLINDERS) and Nathaniel Martello-White and was produced by Valentina Brazzini and Tristan Goligher (45 YEARS, LEAN ON PETE).

Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the full line-up of its 2017 edition (see attached and below), which will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 12-15 October. The festival showcases the best features and short films in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through premieres, previews, guested screenings and special events each year.

As previously announced, Benjamin Barfoot’s Double Date will open the festival on Thursday 12 October and will be followed by a Q&A with guests yet to be revealed. Director Simeon Halligan will present his film Habit and will be joined on stage by producer Rachel Richardson-Jones and lead actor Elliot Langridge. Dick Maas (Amsterdamned, Saint) will also attend the festival to present the UK Premiere of Prey, the ferociously funny tale of a man-eating lion terrorising Amsterdam. The cast for the live stage reading of unmade Hammer script, Zeppelin v Pterodactyls, the centrepiece of the festival’s last day, will be announced at a later stage.

Mayhem’s 13th edition also includes screenings of Top Knot Detective and Mayhem – both previously announced – as well as the UK Premiere of tragic Groundhog Day-like South Korean sci-fi thriller, A Day, and preview screenings of Natalia Leite’s revenge thriller M.F.A. starring Francesca Eastwood, riotous comedy-thriller 68 Kill which plays like a gender-reversed True Romance, Ana Asensio’s spellbinding and award-winning debut Most Beautiful Island, and the darkly comic zombie flick Dead Shack which will close the festival.

With a total of 17 screenings and events, the 2017 edition will also see a screening of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, in a glorious restoration on its 40th anniversary, as part of The CultFilms Tour of SUSPIRIA-4k. The short film programme and the fiendish Mayhem quiz, The Flinterrogation, hosted by author David Flint, will return to round up the festival’s line-up.

Early Bird passes will remain on sale at the discounted price of £65 until 10AM on Tuesday 12 September at which time individual tickets, day passes and full festival passes at the regular price of £75 will be made available. For more information, please visit www.mayhemfilmfestival.com

Mayhem Film Festival announces ZEPPELIN vs PTERODACTYLS, HABIT and MAYHEM

With less than two months to go before the festival’s 13th edition, Mayhem is proud to announce two new titles and a special event as part of their programme.

Building on the success of The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula from the 2015 edition, Mayhem Film Festival will present a new live stage reading of an unmade Hammer production – the legendary Zeppelin vs Pterodactyls. Based on a thought-lost outline from the Hammer Scripts Archive, now faithfully expanded into a full-length script by Mayhem Co-Director, Steven Sheil (Mum & Dad, Dead Mine), Zeppelin vs Pterodactyls will take you on an epic sci-fi adventure to a lost world beyond the arctic snows where prehistoric creatures may still roam. If you couldn’t attend the 2015 production, expect an immersive ‘screenless cinema’ experience with actors bringing the screenplay vividly to life. This one of a kind event is made possible with thanks to Hammer Films and CATH (Cinema and Television History) Research Centre at DeMontfort University.

In addition to this special live event, Mayhem is proud to announce two more films from their 2017 line-up, including Simeon Halligan’s Habit. In this subversive film from the director of White Settlers, a young man working in a massage parlour discovers something dangerous and sinister lurking in the mysterious room no.9. Director Simeon Halligan will present the film and take part in a post-screening Q&A.

Wrapping up this second wave of announcements is Shudder's fittingly titled Mayhem, from American director Joe Lynch. Beyond the endless amusement of Mayhem screening at Mayhem, the film is a relentlessly fun corporate horror in which Derek Cho (Steven Yeun) finds himself trapped within the law firm he has just been fired from, as a super virus making people lose all of their inhibitions condemns the building to quarantine.

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 12-15 October 2017. Early Bird passes are still available for a limited time only at the discounted rate of £65. For more information, please visit www.mayhemfilmfestival.com

Mayhem Film Festival announces DOUBLE DATE, TOP KNOT DETECTIVE and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3: 3D

With its 13th edition fast approaching, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the first three titles from its 2017 programme.

The festival will open with a preview screening of Benjamin Barfoot’s Double Date, which will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and crew. Double Date follows mild-mannered innocent Jim as he attempts to lose his virginity on the eve of his 30th birthday; but the beautiful sisters he and his friend Alex have met for the night, may have darker plans in mind. Guests for this event will be announced later in the summer.

Also on the line-up is the utterly hilarious Top Knot Detective, an Australian mockumentary about a 90s Japanese samurai/detective series known in Japan as ‘Ronin Suiri Tentai’ (‘Deductive Reasoning Ronin’) but known in Australia as ‘Top Knot Detective’. Battling ninjas, monsters, outrageous behaviour, and killer lines, it has it all and is not to be missed!

Wrapping up Mayhem’s first round of announcements, the festival will screen Friday the 13th Part III: 3D, on Friday 13 October, for its 13th edition – an evening with Jason by Crystal Lake, not for the superstitious.

More events, films and guests for Mayhem 2017 will be announced later in the summer.

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 12-15 October 2017 and more news will be revealed over the summer about this year’s edition. For more information, please visit www.mayhemfilmfestival.com
