For its 14th edition, the Mayhem Film Festival will continue to showcase the best in horror, sci-fi and cult cinema, through premieres, previews, guested screenings, midnightscreenings 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 Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) for Monsters,Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Sherlock) for a special masterclass, Ben Wheatley for a preview screening of Sightseers, Nicolas Roeg for a special screening of Don’t Look Now at St Mary’s Church in Nottingham, and cult Canadian collective, Astron-6 for The Editor and The Void.
Mayhem Film Festival has also hosted special events such as screenings with specially-commissioned live scores from 8MM Orchestra, two exclusive live stage reading of unmade Hammer Films screenplays, The Unquenchable Thirst of Dracula in 2015 and Zeppelin V. Pterodactyls in 2017, 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 14th edition with more information and announcements coming soon. Submissions for feature films are free and will open in the spring.
