Mayhem Film Festival announces ZEPPELIN vs PTERODACTYLS, HABIT and MAYHEM

With less than two months to go before the festival’s 13th edition, Mayhem is proud to announce two new titles and a special event as part of their programme.

Building on the success of The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula from the 2015 edition, Mayhem Film Festival will present a new live stage reading of an unmade Hammer production – the legendary Zeppelin vs Pterodactyls. Based on a thought-lost outline from the Hammer Scripts Archive, now faithfully expanded into a full-length script by Mayhem Co-Director, Steven Sheil (Mum & Dad, Dead Mine), Zeppelin vs Pterodactyls will take you on an epic sci-fi adventure to a lost world beyond the arctic snows where prehistoric creatures may still roam. If you couldn’t attend the 2015 production, expect an immersive ‘screenless cinema’ experience with actors bringing the screenplay vividly to life. This one of a kind event is made possible with thanks to Hammer Films and CATH (Cinema and Television History) Research Centre at DeMontfort University.

In addition to this special live event, Mayhem is proud to announce two more films from their 2017 line-up, including Simeon Halligan’s Habit. In this subversive film from the director of White Settlers, a young man working in a massage parlour discovers something dangerous and sinister lurking in the mysterious room no.9. Director Simeon Halligan will present the film and take part in a post-screening Q&A.

Wrapping up this second wave of announcements is Shudder's fittingly titled Mayhem, from American director Joe Lynch. Beyond the endless amusement of Mayhem screening at Mayhem, the film is a relentlessly fun corporate horror in which Derek Cho (Steven Yeun) finds himself trapped within the law firm he has just been fired from, as a super virus making people lose all of their inhibitions condemns the building to quarantine.

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 12-15 October 2017. Early Bird passes are still available for a limited time only at the discounted rate of £65. For more information, please visit www.mayhemfilmfestival.com

Mayhem Film Festival announces DOUBLE DATE, TOP KNOT DETECTIVE and FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3: 3D

With its 13th edition fast approaching, Mayhem Film Festival is proud to announce the first three titles from its 2017 programme.

The festival will open with a preview screening of Benjamin Barfoot’s Double Date, which will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and crew. Double Date follows mild-mannered innocent Jim as he attempts to lose his virginity on the eve of his 30th birthday; but the beautiful sisters he and his friend Alex have met for the night, may have darker plans in mind. Guests for this event will be announced later in the summer.

Also on the line-up is the utterly hilarious Top Knot Detective, an Australian mockumentary about a 90s Japanese samurai/detective series known in Japan as ‘Ronin Suiri Tentai’ (‘Deductive Reasoning Ronin’) but known in Australia as ‘Top Knot Detective’. Battling ninjas, monsters, outrageous behaviour, and killer lines, it has it all and is not to be missed!

Wrapping up Mayhem’s first round of announcements, the festival will screen Friday the 13th Part III: 3D, on Friday 13 October, for its 13th edition – an evening with Jason by Crystal Lake, not for the superstitious.

More events, films and guests for Mayhem 2017 will be announced later in the summer.

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 12-15 October 2017 and more news will be revealed over the summer about this year’s edition. For more information, please visit www.mayhemfilmfestival.com

The increase will affect our standard tickets, as well as tickets for some of our live by satellite events, such as National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company.

Applications open for BFI Film Academy 6 at Broadway

Broadway has been selected for a sixth time to be a regional delivery partner for the BFI’s Film Academy Network, and is offering 20 young people aged 16-19 with a passion for film the opportunity to be a part of our future film industry.

Over five months participants are supported by industry professionals to learn practical skills, watch a range of films from British independent to specialised titles, meet writers, directors and producers.

Participants develop a complete understanding of film, gaining hands on experience within a variety of roles whilst working as part of a small team to produce one of 3 short films, which will be screened in front of a public audience at Broadway Cinema.

Broadway’s BFI Film Academy has supported the next generation of filmmaking talent for the past five years: programme alumni have gone on to work in the industry, study film at university, receive mentoring through BAFTA and be offered work experience with film companies.

“My biggest achievement since leaving Broadway’s BFI Film Academy was pitching my idea to a panel of industry professionals and winning an £8,000 budget to direct my second short film. Without the regional academy I wouldn’t have realised my passion for filmmaking or begun my journey into the film industry”. - Ynez, BFI Film Academy 2015-2016

The programme is an opportunity to gain a valuable first step into the film industry and to complete the NCFE Level 2: Preparing to Work in the Film Industry qualification.

Broadway’s BFI Film Academy 6 will run from 18 October 2017 until 8 February 2018 and will be held at Broadway over evenings and weekends.

The opportunity is open to young people aged 16-19 from across the East Midlands.

Potential applicants have the opportunity to meet academy alumni and staff and get to hear a little more about what’s involved at two open screenings of films made during past academies. These will take place on Saturday 29 July and Saturday 26 August at Broadway Cinema. More details can be found at http://www.broadway.org.uk/filmacademy

Applications are open from Monday 10 July 2017 and close on Sunday 17 September 2017 at midnight.

Near Now to continue helping artist development thanks to Arts Council England support

Broadway is proud to announce that it will be supported by Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation for a further four years from 2018 to 2022.

Broadway has a long history of working with pioneering artists; funding from Arts Council England ensures that we can continue that tradition through our arts, design and innovation studio, Near Now. The Near Now Fellowship helps artists develop their practice, explore bold ideas and research ambitious new work for audiences in Nottingham the Midlands, nationally and internationally. We support artists with diverse experiences, perspectives and backgrounds, which are essential for innovation to thrive and for new ideas to emerge.

Securing this funding means that we can continue to deliver our public programming and we look forward to seeing many of you at Near Now-hosted workshops, talks, exhibitions, screenings and other events from now until 2022.

Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England said:

"Broadway provides a nurturing environment for artists to collaborate, connect and create and we're delighted to be funding them over the next four years. It'll be great to see them continue to deliver their innovative arts and technology programme, as well as engage with new audiences, across the Midlands and beyond."

Lee Nicholls, Creative Producer, Near Now added:

With thanks to Arts Council England’s further support, we look forward to continuing Broadway’s role as a supportive, progressive and inclusive place for artists to realise their ambitions through Near Now. We’re incredibly excited to see what the next four years will bring — a lot can happen in that time, especially within arts and technology.”

Join us at Broadway on Monday 17 July at 6pm as we introduce the latest group of artists to join our Fellowship programme: Rachel Ara, Antonio Roberts and Rachel Briscoe. Learn more about their work and be the first to hear about their ambitions for the rest of the year.
