We are very pleased to launch Adapt to Film, our new five-month training programme for writers

Adapt to Film is funded with support from Creative Skillset, BFI Film Forever and the National Lottery

Starting in November 2016, this five-month training programme will support ten UK-based professional writers or writer/directors to develop their craft so they can turn novels, short stories, films, plays, biographies, blogs, journalistic articles and other factual writing into market-ready screenplays.

You will be guided through an analysis of source material to find the screen story, while drawing on the expertise of sales and distribution specialists, producers, other writers working in adaptation and legal professionals. Adapt to Film will culminate in the opportunity for you to pitch your project to financiers.

Applicants should have demonstrable credits/publications in relevant disciplines (film, literature, theatre,journalism, biography). You should also have a proven basic knowledge of screenwriting and will be required to provide a screenwriting sample as part of the application process.

Mayhem Film Festival to host UK Premiere of HEADSHOT and live performance from THE DUKE ST WORKSHOP feat. Laurence R. Harvey

With its 12th edition fast approaching, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce it will screen the UK Premiere of Headshot from Indonesian duo, Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto, aka the Mo Brothers (Macabre, V/H/S/2), at Broadway, Nottingham.

Starring The Raid’s Iko Uwais as Ishmael, Headshot, follows an amnesiac whose violent past comes back to haunt him. After the young doctor who nursed him gets kidnapped, Ishmael finds himself battling gangs of highly-skilled fighters he may have once worked with in the Indonesian underground, sparking fragments of his identity to resurface.

Taking place on 13 – 16 October, this year’s festival will open with a live performance from The Duke St Workshop, featuring cult horror actor Laurence R Harvey (Human Centipede II & III, The Editor), and presented in collaboration with Nottingham-based film club Kino Klubb. The Duke St Workshop will be performing and expanding from their LP, Tales of H.P. Lovecraft, consisting of two Lovecraft stories – ‘From Beyond’ and ‘The Hound’ – told over an hour-long set through meditative tinkles, sputtering howls of eerie electronica and nightmarish narrations. This haunting audio/visual feast is absolutely not to be missed.

"This year the range of films and genres on offer has expanded, explains Mayhem Co-Director Chris Cooke. So it's great that the hyper action and kinetic violence of the Mo Brothers’ latest film, Headshot, as well as the mind-bending horror of H.P. Lovecraft are represented and exist side by side at our festival. Lovecraft really is a crucial architect of the horror genre and this unique event, organised with the ever excellent Kino Klubb is something we're very excited about."

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 13-16 October. Early Bird Passes for the festival are still available at the discounted price of £60 for a limited time only. For more information and to book your passes, please visit

Broadway to host special exhibition and gala screening of PAA JOE & THE LION with special guests

Broadway, Nottingham is proud to welcome back Paa Joe and his mighty lion coffin for a gala screening of Benjamin Wigley’s debut documentary, Paa Joe & The Lion, on Sunday 28 August.

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 PMA Worldview, and made with the support of Creative England and Kickstarter, Paa Joe & The Lion premiered at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June. One audience member said of the film: “There were tears, cheers and belly-laughs.

Now back at Broadway, where the team originally launched their Kickstarter campaign, the special gala screening will be attended by director Benjamin Wigley, Paa Joe himself and his son Jacob, and collaborator Benjamin Zephaniah, who will all take part in a post-screening Q&A.

The screening will be the culmination of a day of music and celebration with live music, art and performance from 2PM on Broadway’s terrace, followed by a procession which will see Paa Joe’s lion coffin being carried around Hockley from 4PM with live drummers. The film itself will start at 5.15PM at Broadway.

Ahead of the screening, Broadway will be host to a special exhibition around the film in its Gallery from 22 August. The exhibition will feature work from local photographer David Severn who documented the lion coffin’s procession at Clumber Park in 2013, artwork from artist Amy Blackwell who designed the lion branding for the film, hand-made masks from Nottingham-based mask-maker Stephen Jon, which appear in the film, and stills taken from the film that document the film’s progression from start to finish – all taking people on a full journey of the five years that have gone into the making of the film. The exhibition will be open from 22 until 29 August from 10am – 6pm. Access to the Broadway Gallery is available from Heathcoat Street or through Broadway’s main entrance on Broad Street.

Mayhem Film Festival to screen THEY CALL ME JEEG ROBOT and Steve Barker's THE REZORT

Mayhem Film Festival are thrilled to announce Steve Barker’s The ReZort and Gabriele Mainetti’s They Call Me Jeeg Robot as the first two films from their 12th edition’s line-up.

Returning to Broadway, Nottingham on 13-16 October, Mayhem Film Festival will also welcome Steve Barker for a Q&A following a screening of his new film. Described as Westworld meets The Walking Dead, The ReZort is set in a world where humanity has defeated a zombie apocalypse, and moved on to offer a Zombie Safari – a chance to hunt and kill the walking dead in a controlled environment.

Also on the line-up is Italian gritty and grimy superhero movie They Call Me Jeeg Robot, which sees a petty criminal transformed and given superpowers after falling into Rome’s toxic Tiber River. But his plans to use his powers for crime fall apart after being mistaken for a 1970s Japanese anime by a woman he saves from mobsters and becoming the target of the criminal underworld.

“We’re putting together another fantastic and diverse line-up for this year’s festival, explains Mayhem Co-Director, Steven Sheil, and we’re really happy to be screening these two films, which offer great new spins on the zombie and superhero genres. We’re also looking forward to bringing Steve Barker to Mayhem for the first time to present The ReZort, the first of a number of special guested events we have planned for the festival.”
