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.

Full details on the Foreshadow Film Fund can be found on Broadway’s website at

Young programmers announce full line-up for Teen Mayhem

Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce four screenings, two CBBC panels and two workshops as part of Teen Mayhem 2015, a weekend of fantasy, science-fiction and horror for young viewers.

Now in its second year and building up on last year’s success, Mayhem’s new strand dedicated to young people, is expanding to two days, taking place on 28 and 29 November at Broadway, Nottingham. This year, Teen Mayhem also invited seven 9-13-year-olds to join the team and help curate and organise the mini festival.

Teen Mayhem Programmer, Isobel, aged 10, explained why she wanted to get involved: “I came last year and I just wanted to learn all of it and see the magic behind-the-scenes.

Dedicated to pre-teens and young teenagers with a passion for genre cinema and television, Teen Mayhem will include screenings of Coraline, The Maze Runner, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as two exclusive panels around CBBC shows Eve and The Sparticle Mystery, with show creators and cast members, including The Sparticle Mystery creator, Alison Hume and stars Oli Dillon and Abbie Hayes, and Eve creators Emma Reeves and David Chikwe, and stars Poppy Lee Friar and Oliver Woollford, expected to attend the weekend, and two make-up workshops from esteemed special effects expert, Jayne Hyman.

Teen Mayhem’s seven young programmers have taken part in two two-day sessions over the Summer and half-term holidays to help programme and also learn about curation, and how to organise and host an event.

There isn’t enough out there for our age group, explains Sadie, aged 13. Horror genre in cinemas is more for 15-18-year-olds but it’s so much fun to watch.” “There should definitely be more programmes like this one”, said Ava, aged 10.

The young mayhemers are now looking forward to meeting their audience and the panelists over the Teen Mayhem weekend: “It’s been great to see how it actually works, said Mae, aged 12. I’m so proud to be a part of it.” “I’ve really enjoyed the programme, added Myles, aged 12. I can’t wait to see the panel and see everybody’s reactions.

Teen Mayhem will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 28 and 29 November. Tickets are £3.60 per screening, £5 per workshop session and a day passes are available for £10. For more information and to book tickets, please visit

Teen Mayhem is presented by Mayhem Film Festival in partnership with Film Hub Central East.
