We are sad that bang! Short Film Festival has come to an end. It has been a pleasure working with bang! for the past 15 years and we would like to thank Donna and her team for all their hard work and great contribution to the local and national short film scene. We wish Donna and all of bang!’s contributors all the best for their future ventures.

Astron-6 to open Mayhem Film Festival’s 10th edition with THE EDITOR

Mayhem Film Festival are thrilled to open this year’s tenth edition with a special evening with members of Canadian cult filmmaking collective Astron-6 and a preview screening of their hysterical new feature The Editor.

Astron-6, the collective behind Father’s Day, Manborg and last year’s hit short Bio-Cop, will present their most ambitious project to date, The Editor, a 70s Italian giallo-inspired comedy in which a one time (and one-handed) master film editor becomes the prime suspect in a series of brutal murders.

Adam Brooks (Father’s Day), Matthew Kennedy (Manborg himself!) and Conor Sweeney(Justice in Manborg) – three-fifths of Astron-6 – will attend Mayhem and present a short film showcase of some of their previous work, and take part in a post-screening Q&A following the preview of The Editor.

Astron-6’s Matthew Kennedy is looking forward to their visit: “like most Canadians, Adam, Conor and I are of European descent. It will be with great pleasure that we return to our homeland and sour the minds of our ancestry with our latest macabre masterpiece, The Editor. While in Nottingham we hope to meet Robin Hood and perhaps work with him on his next film.”

Chris Cooke, Mayhem Co-Director says: “Astron-6 gave the festival two of our best crowd-pleasers ever: Bio-Cop and Manborg, as well as creating the wildly enjoyable Father’s Day, so it’s great that we’ve been able to get them here to meet their fans, screen their original short films and talk about The Editor, starring the legendary Udo Kier. They’re an inspiration to a lot of developing and established filmmakers and make incredibly entertaining films. The Editor is like the makers of Airplane directed an incredibly gory, boundary busting, horror film: it’s lurid, bad taste and very, very funny. Incredible.”

Astron-6 will open Mayhem Film Festival’s 10th edition on Thursday 30 October. More information about the programme will be announced soon. Early Bird Passes for the festival are available at the discounted price of £55. For more information and to book your passes, please visit

We're making a few changes

In the next few months, we will be making a few changes to our lower ground floor to create new exciting spaces for creatives to get inspired, collaborate and develop new ideas and projects.

The work started mid-July and will finish in the later part of October. On a day-to-day basis you probably won’t notice much difference with the way we operate, although you may hear a little noise every now and then. To make sure you still experience the best screening conditions possible, we will move our matinee screenings to Screens 1 and 2 during the week, away from any potential noise.

We have experienced significant changes in our 24 years. And now, funded by Arts Council England through its Small Capital Scheme and part-funded by the European Regional Development Funding, we are able to create those new multi-purpose spaces that will enable us to widen our activities and engage with more partners locally, nationally and internationally.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continual support and we hope you will bear with us over the next few months as we go through those new changes. Our staff will be on hand to make sure everything is going well and to respond to any enquiries you may have. We look forward to being able to share our new spaces with you later this year.

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

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.
