Mayhem calls for your scary shorts

Ahead of its 11th edition, Mayhem Film Festival is now accepting entries for its Scary Shorts Programme.

Mayhem 2015 will take place on 15-18 October and the Scary Shorts Programme will once again be at the heart of the festival, which showcases the best horror, sci-fi and cult features and shorts from around the world.

Accepting local, national and international entries, the festival hopes to compile another selection of outstanding short films for what remains their most loved and one of their most popular screenings each year.

Now a four-day event, Mayhem originally started as a single compilation of short films, and the Scary Shorts still hold an important place in the festival’s schedule.

Chris Cooke and Steven Sheil, Mayhem’s Co-Directors, explain: “Whether a dark and twisted horror film, or a thoughtful science fiction drama, we want to see it! Short films remain at the heart of what Mayhem is about – they’re the place to spot the future feature filmmakers, the people who will shape the horror and science fiction genres and alter cult cinema for years to come. It’s a place to network, too, with many filmmakers coming together from the city, the country and beyond.”

The call for Scary Shorts is now open and filmmakers can submit their entry for free until Friday 14 August. To submit your scary short, please email Melissa Gueneau at

Mayhem Film Festival will take place on 15-18 October 2015. For more information about Mayhem, please visit

Trent Bridge Film Festival

The digital scoreboard at Trent Bridge will take on another role as a massive film screen as part of the Father’s Day Film Festival at the ground on 21st June 2015.

Programmed in association with Broadway, the wonderful feast of films – including big features Paddington and Grease – will be accompanied by some vintage gems from the vaults of the Media Archive for Central England (MACE) – home to thousands of films charting the moving image history of the last century and the 1930s feature ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’ starring Errol Flynn.

One of the archive films, shot in colour, records some of the memorable matches that took place at Trent Bridge during the summer of ’64. The film of the Ashes Test Match between England and Australia features players as they practice in the nets and discuss tactics ahead of the game including Freddie Trueman, Colin Cowdrey, Geoff Boycott and the captains Ted Dexter and Bob Simpson. The film also shows a Trent Bridge ground of more than 50 years ago and the age-old problem of ‘rain stops play’!

Justin Tose, Trent Bridge’s Commercial Director said:

“Trent Bridge is delighted to host this special day and have the added bonus of archive film showing Nottingham over the years. The Trent Bridge film from ‘64 which has recently been digitised couldn’t be more appropriate and we feel sure this will be a great event for all ages.”

This film and many more from the archives including VE Day celebrations at Colwick and Nottingham’s Old Market Square in the 50s will be screened on the scoreboard throughout the day showing Nottingham on Film. As a special nod to a local hero, the programme will also include one of the greatest swashbuckling adventure movies of all time, ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’. Made in 1938 in colour, it stars a 29-year-old Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone and Claude Rains.

James Patterson, Director of Media Archive for Central England (MACE) also said:

“It’s fantastic to be able to show Trent Bridge Test footage featuring so many greats of the past on the big screen at the ground itself. MACE is so pleased to be able to preserve and make this valuable footage available and is always excited to hear about more!”

Tickets are available for purchase now on 0844 811 8711, online at or in person at the Trent Bridge box office.

Mayhem to host UK Premiere of The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)

Mayhem Film Festival will host the UK Premiere of the final chapter of the most controversial trilogy of the 21st century, The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), at Broadway, Nottingham on Saturday 4 July.

Tom Six, Creator and Director of the trilogy, and Dieter Laser, star of the first and final sequence will be heading to Nottingham to present the 100% politically incorrect sequel, before taking part in a post-screening Q&A.

The grand finale of the “world’s sickest horror franchise” will see bully prison warden, Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), find a revolutionary idea which could change the American prison system for good.

Audience members are encouraged to come to the event in costume – as one of the films’ characters or as a centipede (human or other) – with a chance to win cash prizes; and ticket holders will also be invited to the film’s after party for a chance to meet the brains behind the trilogy and celebrate the conclusion of the notorious franchise.

Chris Cooke, Co-Director of Mayhem Film Festival, says: "We're delighted that Dieter Laser, the star of the first film and of this final chapter in the story will be with us at Broadway Cinema, alongside his director, Tom Six, the mastermind behind this fascinating franchise. The Human Centipede films are hugely over-the-top entertainment - and we want to build on that, inviting audiences to participate and come in costume. This is perhaps the most controversial series of films this century, so it's a pleasure to be invited to host this historic event."

Limited tickets are also available for the most devoted fans who would like to watch all three films end-to-end. Ticket holders for the Premiere can book free tickets for The Human Centipede 1 and The Human Centipede 2, in Broadway’s Lounge, earlier on in the day.

Tickets are now available at normal ticket prices HERE.

Broadway opens £115,000 'Foreshadow Film Fund'

Broadway in Nottingham has opened its film investment fund which, at its launch, stands at £115,000. The fund will support the development of feature-length fiction and documentary films and the production of feature-length documentary films. Broadway is looking to initially invest £40,000 of the fund in about six projects, with maximum investments of £10,000.

John Tobin, Broadway’s Development Director, who heads the fund, says “as a cinema managing a film investment fund we’re in a unique position. We’d like audiences to engage with films and the talent behind them from the very start, to create that moment of recognition when the films go on to reach our screens. It’s why we’ve chosen the name Foreshadow Film Fund.”

Ahead of opening this new fund, Broadway made an investment in Jeanie Finlay’s ORION: The Man Who Would Be King which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, won the Gibson Music Films/Music City Competition Grand Jury Prize at the Nashville Film Festival and has been nominated for the Grand Jury Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest where it will have its UK premiere on 6 June 2015. Other financiers of the film are Creative England, Ffilm Cymru Wales and BBC Storyville.

Broadway also recently co-commissioned and Executive Produced Nelly Ben Hayoun’s Disaster Playground which premiered at SXSW, screening in its Visions section, and is receiving its UK premiere at Sheffield Doc/Fest on June 8 2015.
