Mayhem expands programme for 10-day anniversary celebrations

To mark its tenth edition, Mayhem Film Festival is presenting 10 days of activities, offering two brand new programmes dedicated to horror, cult cinema and sci-fi on screen. Saturday 25 October will mark the start of Mayhem X, a one-of-a-kind ten-day celebration of the genre.

Mayhem X will open with Teen Mayhem, an introduction to the genre for a younger audience, aimed to inspire them to better engage with the genre through screenings, masterclasses and workshops. Mayhem Certificate X will then take over presenting a series of screenings looking at the history and context of the X certificate in films. The two new strands will lead up to the main Mayhem Film Festival lasting four days, starting on Thursday 30 October. Discounts for Teen Mayhem and Mayhem Certificate X tickets will be available for Mayhem Festival Early Bird Passes and Full Festival Passes holders. Mayhem X is made possible with the support of the BFI Film Festival Fund, awarding funds from The National Lottery.


To mark the one-month countdown to Mayhem X, Mayhem will host a special screening of Wolf Cop at Broadway on Sunday 28 September at 8.45PM. Tickets are now on sale at http://www.broadway.org.uk/events/film_wolfcop

In addition to the festival’s extended tenth-anniversary celebrations, Mayhem will be presenting a three-day season of film screenings, events and discussion forums on the theme of ‘The Created Woman’ early December, as part of Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder – the BFI’s nationwide three-month celebration of film and television’s original blockbuster genre. ‘The Created Woman’ season is co-curated by Sarah Lutton, Programme Advisor for the London Film Festival, and made possible through Film Hub Central East.

Chris Cooke, co-director of Mayhem, says: “This year, Mayhem will be just as packed as ever with brand new, never seen before releases and we’re really excited about our opening film, a real treat for regular attendees of the festival and those who have never been before. With Teen Mayhem, Certificate X and the main festival it means the genre can really be given the attention and love it deserves. And then of course, straight after four days of horror, we have even more to look forward to for Sci-Fi fans in December…”

Mayhem X will take place Saturday 25 October – Monday 3 November. More information about Teen Mayhem and Mayhem Certificate X will be announced soon. Early Bird Passes for the main festival are currently available at the discounted price of £55.

‘The Created Woman’ season will take place 5-7 December. More information will be announced soon about the full programme of activities.

We recommend Current Situation at the New Art Exchange

Our friends at the New Art Exchange are currently hosting Yara El Sherbini's exhibition Current Situation, questioning world power through play.

Yara El-Sherbini's practice uses humour to question social and political systems of power and influence. The artist utilises recognisable formats within contemporary popular culture, such as pub quizzes and games, to playfully disarm viewers and the participants, engaging them with the socio-political ideas central to her work.

Including both off-site and on-site interventions, at the heart of the exhibition will be the newly commissioned artwork, The Current Situation. The piece is a participatory artwork that subverts the traditional 'buzz wire' game into the form of a giant metal map of the world. Visitors to the gallery will take on the challenge of navigating the borders of the global map with a hand held device. Some territories are more difficult to contour than others, examining notions around the establishment of borders, the division of land and expansion of empires.

The exhibition runs until Sunday 7 September 2014 and we highly recommend it. For more information and for opening times, please visit http://bit.ly/1iHeQHf

Broadway welcomes local actor who stars in adaptation of hit novel

Broadway is delighted to welcome local actor David Shackleton to introduce the film adaptation of international best-seller The 100-year-old Man who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared in which he plays a key supporting role.

David plays Herbert Einstein, Albert Einstein’s fictional “idiot brother”, in the anticipated adaptation of Jonas Jonasson’s novel in which a man embarks on the greatest adventure of his life on his 100th birthday. One of the few non-historical characters of the film, David’s Herbert Einstein has become one of the favourite characters from the popular story among readers and cinemagoers alike.

Originally a linguist, David joined the Nottingham Arts Theatre in 2006 to entertain his lifetime passion – acting. He became a professional actor in 2009 and in 2012, landed the plum role of Herbert in The 100-year-old Man…

About being part of such an experience, David says: “The dream of a lifetime, which I thought of as totally unrealistic, has come true and the great adventure I always sought did happen – and is still happening now in my 69th year.”

The 100-year-old Man who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared is released at Broadway and nationwide on Friday 4 July. David Shackleton will be at Broadway to introduce the film and discuss the great adventure that took him to Budapest on Thursday 17 July at 1.30PM.

For more information about the film or to book tickets please visit http://www.broadway.org.uk/events/film_the_100_year_old_man_who_climbed_out_the_window_and_disappeared

Mayhem Film Festival prepares for anniversary

Mayhem Film Festival returns to Broadway this autumn to take you on a fantastic journey beyond the dark edges of film. Taking place from 30 October to 2 November, Mayhem will be celebrating 10 years of eeriness with previews, special events, midnight screenings, new releases and special guests.

Over the last decade, Mayhem has grown from a single short film programme to a four-day event, screening the best horror, sci-fi and cult shorts and features from around the world. The ever-growing festival saw its most successful edition last year with its biggest ever audience and exceptional events such as a screening of Don’t Look Now at St Mary’s Church with British director Nicolas Roeg, and a screening of silent film The Unknown with a specially-commissioned live score by Nottingham band 8MM Orchestra.

Plans for Mayhem’s 10th anniversary are already under way and discounted early bird passes will go on sale on 24 June at 10AM for the more eager Mayhem fans.

Mayhem are also on the look-out for scary shorts. Very much at the heart of the festival, the shorts programme is one of Mayhem’s most popular features, showcasing the best local, national and international shorts on the circuit. The call for scary shorts is now open and filmmakers can submit their entry for free until Friday 29 August.

To submit your scary short, please email Annie Parry at info@mayhemhorrorfest.co.uk

To book your Early Bird Passes at the discounted price of £55, please visit our box office or go online at http://www.broadway.org.uk
