Shots in the Dark Festival returns to Broadway for 2018 edition

Broadway Cinema and Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature are reviving Nottingham’s International Crime, Mystery and Thriller Festival, Shots in the Dark, for a new edition taking place from 28 June – 1 July at Broadway.

Originally created in 1991 by Broadway’s first Director and Film London’s current CEO, Adrian Wootton, Shots in the Dark ran until 1999 and welcomed a number of internationally renowned filmmakers and crime writers to Nottingham including Sara Paretsky, John Woo, James Ellroy, and a young Quentin Tarantino, who presented a screening of Reservoir Dogs in 1992, and returned the following year to host an unofficial first UK screening of Pulp Fiction.

Over its nine previous years, the festival became an event of truly national and international standing and Shots in the Dark 2018 captures the spirit of the original festival by hosting four days of films, talks, and special events.

The festival will open on Thursday 28 June with a preview screening of Vaughn Stein’s neo-noir Terminal, starring Margot Robbie and Simon Pegg. The rest of the weekend will see a total of eight films, with highlights including a restoration of Howard Hawks’ 1932 gangster classic Scarface, introduced by the University of Nottingham’s Dr Ian Brooks; Nicholas Ray’s 1951 noir On Dangerous Ground; and preview screenings of Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire’s Muay Thai crime thriller A Prayer Before Dawn, starring up-and-coming actor Joe Cole; and finally, the critically acclaimed Cannes award-winning Mafia supernatural fantasy Sicilian Ghost Story.

Broadway will also welcome acclaimed French director Bertrand Tavernier to receive the Inaugural Shots in the Dark Lifetime Achievement Award. During the event, the director will discuss his long and distinguished career as a critic, publicist, director and producer. The Festival will also showcase a short retrospective of Tavernier’s work throughout the weekend, including Coup de Torchon, L.627, and In The Electric Mist.

The festival will conclude with local writer CJ Tudor, author of The Chalk Man, in discussion with Sandeep Mahal, Director of Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature about her novel, the continued popularity of the psychological thriller, and which novels inspire her to write.

Shots in the Dark 2018 takes place at Broadway Cinema, Nottingham on 28 June – 1 July. Tickets are available through the Box Office on 0115 952 6611 and online at

Young filmmakers premiere short films to full house at Broadway

Local filmmakers – aged 16-19 – premiered their debut short films at Broadway, Nottingham on Thursday 29 March in front of a full house of 340.

FASCINATION, SIGNED. and GONE were the three short films produced as part of the BFI Film Academy with Broadway acting as regional delivery partner of the programme for the sixth year.

Participants in the BFI Film Academy had the opportunity to gain valuable advice and guidance from those already working in the UK film industry over five months whilst at the same time creating their own short film.

All those that have taken part over the past six years are from the East Midlands and a number have gone on to work in the industry on films such as SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, GAME OF THRONES and the upcoming HEART OF CHAOS which includes action scenes shot in Nottingham’s Market Square.

Speakers and mentors on the programme have included Screenwriter and Director Deborah Haywood (Pin Cushion), Editor Richard Graham (Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, The Missing, Monsters: Dark Continent) and Producer Anna Griffin (Only God Forgives)

This is the first year that the premiere event for the resulting short films has played to such a large audience and programme alumni have gone on to receive further mentoring from BAFTA, gained work experience with film companies and gone on to work in the industry

Paul Hough, Creative Learning Manager at Broadway said “Broadway are extremely proud to work with these talented, young filmmakers and will continue to support the development of local talent in the future. We want to inspire creativity and a lifelong love of film, something that our continuing partnership with the BFI enables us to do.”

FASCINATION, SIGNED. and GONE will be available for general viewing shortly.

Broadway will also be delivering an Easter Filmmaking School for 13-15 year olds from Monday 9 April to Friday 13 April. The week-long school will give aspiring talent the opportunity to create a film whilst also learning about scriptwriting, prop making, sound effects design and directing. Places on this course can be booked here
