THURSDAY 29th OCTOBER - SUNDAY 1st NOVEMBER
Halloween sees the return of the MAYHEM HORROR FILM FESTIVAL to Broadway Cinema Nottingham. Broadway will be taken over by all things horror for three days of fearsome feature films, grizzly guests and scary shorts which will shock, surprise and entertain.
As part of its programme MAYHEM presents a series of preview screenings of some of the most exciting up and coming feature films including on Thursday 29th October COLIN – the film that wowed the critics at Cannes this year and only cost it’s makers £45! Which has “Turned its director into the poster boy of zero-budget film-making, an example of what can be achieved with an old camcorder, a laptop and a good idea.” THE GUARDIAN.
