For iOS:

  • At the bottom of the screen you'll see an icon depicting an arrow that looks like it's trying to get away from a square. Tap this button
  • If you managed to tap that button successfully, you'll have a few options. The one you want to tap is "Add to Home Screen". You can name the icon as you wish, click add in the top right corner once you have chosen your name, the shortcut should now be on your home screen


For Android:

  • Press the Menu button (either below the screen on some devices or at the top-right corner of the browser) then tap on Page.

Mayhem returns to Broadway this autumn

It’s time to save the date! Mayhem Film Festival will return this autumn at Broadway from 13 – 16 October.

With previews, premieres, special guests and midnight screenings, Mayhem Film Festival showcases the best in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through feature films, short films and special events.

In previous editions, Mayhem has welcomed many filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg for a special screening of Don’t Look Now at St Mary’s Church, Ben Wheatley for a preview screening of Sightseers, Gareth Edwards for Monsters, and Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Sherlock) for a special masterclass. Mayhem Film Festival has also hosted exclusive events such as screenings with specially-commissioned live scores from 8MM Orchestra, and a one-of-a-kind live reading of unmade Hammer Films screenplay, The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula.

Now in its 12th year, the festival has grown from a single short film programme to a four-day event and continues to expand its programme to highlight emerging talents and new bold titles from the darker edges of film.

Planning is currently underway for Mayhem Film Festival 2016 with more information and announcements coming soon. Submissions for feature films will open in the spring. Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 13 – 16 October 2016. For more information about Mayhem please visit go here.

Broadway-part-financed Orion: The Man Who Would Be King wins British Independent Film Award

First recipient of Broadway’s Foreshadow Film Fund, Jeanie Finlay’s Orion: The Man Who Would Be King won the Discovery Award at the Moët British Independent Film Awards (MBIFAs) in London last Sunday 6 December.

The Foreshadow Film Fund, managed by Broadway, Nottingham, opened earlier this year and looks to support the development of feature-length fiction and documentary films and the production of feature-length documentary films.

Having recently co-commissioned and Executive Produced Nelly Ben Hayoun’s Disaster Playground, Broadway made its first Foreshadow investment in Orion: The Man Who Would Be King, joining other financiers Creative England, Ffilm Cymru Wales and BBC Storyville. The film explores the extraordinary story of Jimmy “Orion” Ellis and the birth of the ‘Elvis is alive’ myth and was made over six years.

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, Orion: The Man Who Would Be King went on to win the Gibson Music Films/Music City Competition Grand Jury Prize at the Nashville Film Festival and best international documentary at In-Edit, Barcelona before winning the Discovery Award at the MBIFAs last Sunday. Sponsored by Raindance, the Discovery Award rewards new talents with a bold, and innovative approach to storytelling. Jeanie Finlay had previously been nominated for Best Documentary at the MBIFAs in 2013, for The Great Hip Hop Hoax.

Broadway’s Development Director, John Tobin, says “We congratulate Jeanie on her fantastic and fully deserved Discovery Award success. We’re proud to have supported Orion: The Man Who Would Be King which, by its creative ambition and critical acclaim, has set the standard for film projects we support in the future to follow.”

Orion: The Man Who Would Be King is available to watch on demand on iTunes, VHX, Curzon Home Cinema and We Are Colony and a limited edition DVD & vinyl is available for pre buy now. The film released theatrically in USA via Sundance Selects last week and is a New York Times critic’s choice. www.orionthemovie.com
