From Friday 4 June – Sunday 6 June 2010, we open our doors to the world of horror, sci-fi and fantasy cinema in all its gory-ous detail for the ninth year running.
Highlights include a midnight screening of Birdemic, which will be attended by the film’s director, James Nguyen – described as the new Ed Wood – I hear this is a real shocker! We will also be welcoming David Gregory, a familiar name in horror circles who has produced countless documentaries on the genre. Gregory is in town to present his first feature, Plague Town.
Don’t miss an appearance by the multi-talented but elusive Jeremy (The League of Gentlemen) Dyson, who will be joined by other guest speakers at Fantasma, a one-day symposium created in partnership with Timecode – Bradford University’s media seminar series.
We will be taking a look at the horror ‘ones to watch’ in the FFW2010 Shorts selection, alongside rarely seen classics such as The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue, Lizard in a Woman’s Skin and Screamtime, and perennial favourites Psycho, Horror Express and Videodrome.
You can also check out our FFW2010 Facebook page for updates, watch film clips and footage from the event on the National Media Museum’s YouTube page, and view pictures from this year and festivals past, by visiting the National Media Museum on Flickr.
