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

Broadway receives Arts Council England Exceptional Award for Nelly Ben Hayoun's Disaster Playground

Broadway has received a £200,000 Arts Council England Exceptional Award through its commissioning and artist development programme, Near Now.

The award will go towards the production of Nelly Ben Hayoun’s new project, Disaster Playground, of which Broadway is an Executive Producer.

Disaster Playground is a creative platform investigating the design of emergency procedures in the space programme, with world-renowned space experts at NASA, the SETI (Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence) Institute and an all-star team of composers, writers and international collaborators.

With a cutting-edge approach and through re-enactment of high alert situations by teams of space experts at NASA and the SETI Institute, Ben Hayoun will question what the space programme could be if members of the public were to share its human condition – the dilemmas faced by scientists over discovery and decision-making under pressure.

The project will result in an evolving platform of live events and experiences featuring films shot on location at NASA Headquarters, SETI, and Disaster and Emergency Response training facilities across the USA.

Award-winning experience designer and director Nelly Ben Hayoun is known as “the Willy Wonka of art and science”. Her bold practice has brought her to investigate the Large Hadron Collider and the empty lands of Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Disaster Playground follows on from her research with the hugely successful International Space Orchestra, under Ben Hayoun’s directorship, at NASA Ames Research Center.

Near Now previously welcomed Ben Hayoun at Broadway in 2013, as part of its monthly talks series, to discuss her work founding the International Space Orchestra.

Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England said:

“The Exceptional Awards programme is a chance for us to invest in really remarkable ideas of national importance. Disaster Playground definitely falls within this category. Taking space exploration as its inspiration it will be a fascinating and cutting-edge production that audiences can enjoy as a live experience.”

John Tobin, Broadway’s Development Director said:

“The Exceptional Awards programme is extremely competitive. We feel our award is recognition of Nelly Ben Hayoun’s exceptional artistic talent and Broadway’s growing capabilities and ambitions in the arts”.

Mathew Trivett, Producer behind the Near Now programme said:

"We are proud to have worked with Nelly on Disaster Playground from research and development through to now its production. Nelly Ben Hayoun's practice, represents one of the nation’s brightest artistic talents, a fearless and passionate provocateur who has regularly been described as an ‘manufacturer of the impossible’."

Nelly Ben Hayoun, Disaster Playground Director and Designer of Experiences:

“It is a huge honour to receive the support of the Arts Council England, and to work in collaboration with the Near Now programme. In Disaster Playground, I have brought together an incredible team, and together we are creating a critical platform that investigates the political judgement of scientists, and the public’s apprehension of what space science and art should fulfill. I am grateful for such generous support, and I look forward to sharing Disaster Playground with
you in 2014/15, and helping to bring the wonder of Space Exploration back onto the nation agenda. We will reach the ‘final frontier’ with Disaster Playground!”

Broadway to launch £100,000 film investment fund

Broadway to launch £100,000 film investment fund

Creative talent in and around Nottingham will soon benefit from the legacy of regional screen agency EM Media following the assignment of its digital investment fund residual assets to leading independent cinema Broadway. Combining EM Media’s legacy finance with its own funds, Broadway will now launch a £100,000 investment fund.

John Tobin, Broadway’s Development Director, who will head the fund, says “We’re proud that EM Media has entrusted Broadway with its legacy and given us the opportunity to build on its contribution to the British film industry. As a producing cinema, an investment fund is a notable addition to our growing portfolio of support for UK talent, which includes Near Now, our commissioning and artist development programme and Projector, our creative business support programme, alongside being a delivery partner of the BFI’s Film Academy UK Network. Already, filmmakers based at Broadway have their work seen by audiences around the world; we hope this fund will be the incentive for more local films to reach production”.

He adds “We’re anticipating the fund will primarily be for the development of feature length fiction and documentary films intended for theatrical release, from seed investment for early research through to advanced stage investment for packaging. Investment is likely to be, where possible, in projects co-financed with other partners and recoupable in line with industry practice. To reflect the uniqueness of Broadway managing a film fund and being a cinema, I expect we’ll be looking to prioritise projects that actively engage audiences from the very start.

More details about the fund and the application process will be announced on our website in July.
