Made at Broadway film PAA JOE & THE LION is heading to SXSW

Broadway-based filmmaker Ben Wigley is heading to the prestigious SXSW (South by Southwest) film and music festival with his film Paa Joe & the Lion.

Paa Joe & the Lion will have its North American premiere in Austin, TX in March, alongside an impressive line-up of documentaries, fiction features and gala events, including Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, Michael Winterbottom’s On the Road and Terrence Malick’s Song to Song.

Paa Joe & The Lion tells the story of Paa Joe, also known as the Grandfather of Ghana’s fantasy coffin trade – an artist and pioneer of the fantasy coffin who, although celebrated the world over, is struggling to survive back in Ghana. Broadway-based filmmaker, Benjamin Wigley, embarked on a five-year journey across Ghana and the UK to uncover the story of this extraordinary craftsman.

Developed through Documentary Campus Masterschool with the support of Worldview, and made with the support of Creative England and Kickstarter, Paa Joe & The Lion premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June, before returning to Broadway last August for a gala screening preceded by a procession and followed by a Q&A with director Ben Wigley, Paa Joe himself and his son Jacob.

SXSW takes place in Austin, TX on 10-19 March 2017. To find out more information about Paa Joe & the Lion, please visit www.paajoeandthelion.com. To follow the team’s adventures, join them on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

Mayhem Film Festival returns to Broadway this autumn

Save the date! Mayhem Film Festival returns to Broadway for its 13th edition on 12 – 15 October 2017.

With premieres, previews, 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.

Having grown from a single short film programme to a four-day event, Mayhem continues to expand, welcoming more special guests, celebrating new and emerging talent, and highlighting bold and exciting new feature and short films from the dark edges of genre and beyond.

In previous years, Mayhem has welcomed many filmmakers from around the world such as Nicolas Roeg for a special screening of Don’t Look Now at St Mary’s Church in Nottingham, Ben Wheatley for a preview screening of Sightseers, Gareth Edwards for Monsters, Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Sherlock) for a special masterclass, and cult Canadian collective, Astron-6. Mayhem Film Festival has also hosted exclusive events such as screenings with specially-commissioned live scores from 8MM Orchestra, a one-of-a-kind live reading of unmade Hammer Films screenplay, The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula, and a live performance of Tales of HP Lovecraft by The Duke St Workshop featuring British actor Laurence R. Harvey.

Planning is currently underway for Mayhem Film Festival’s 13th edition 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 12 – 15 October 2017. For more information, please visit http://www.mayhemfilmfestival.com/
