Bradford Film Fest announce horror line-up


Next week sees the 17th Bradford International Film Festival take place, and there's plenty for fans of British horror (and horror in general) to get excited about, including the screening of Scot-shot-pot-shot-at-clots horror Blooded, Hammer's Wake Wood and a special guest in the form of Marc Price, he of the "£40 - yeah, right - horror film" Colin. See below for for details...

17TH BRADFORD INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL HORROR PROGRAMME ANNOUNCED


Bradford International Film Festival has announced a horror strand for its 17th edition, running from 16th to 27th March. All-new for 2011 is a mini “fest within a fest” - Bradford After Dark, which will focus on some of the freshest and most shocking horror films on the circuit, alongside a rare chance to see the classic Suspiria in Widescreen, a chance to talk to low budget zombie filmmakers including Marc Price (Colin) and the World Premiere of a terrifying chase across the wilds of Scotland.


Blooded - World Premiere
Friday 18th March, 8.30pm, Cineworld Bradford (screened again on Tuesday 22nd March, 5.30pm).
Director Ed Boase's startling debut feature, in which five young people are kidnapped whilst on a hunting trip in the Scottish Highlands. Stripped and abandoned in the far corners of the bleak wilderness, they are forced into a deadly game where the hunters become the hunted. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Boase and actor Nick Ashdon.


Bradford After Dark
Saturday 19th March, 4pm-1am, Cineworld Bradford
On Saturday 19th March, over nine blood-drenched hours, BIFF 2011 is collaborating with Celluloid screams, Sheffield’s Horror Film Festival, to present five hotly anticipated horror films at Bradford Cineworld. 
Beginning at 4pm with Mother’s Day from director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Repo! The Genetic Opera), and closing in the early hours of Sunday morning with the outrageous mayhem of Hobo With a Shotgun, Bradford After Dark begins with a Grindhouse remake and closes with a gore-splattered Grindhouse homage. In-between horror fans will find the UK premiere of serial killer thriller Roadman - the latest in a line of stand-out Australian horror films (Wolf Creek, The Loved Ones); Wake Wood - a dark tale of paganism marking the return of the Hammer name in its trademark style; and Stake Land, Jim (Mulberry Street) Mickles’s ferocious vampiric vision of post-apocalyptic America which feeds fresh blood to the genre in an innovative and unapologetic style.


Suspiria at Widescreen Weekend
Sunday 27th February, Pictureville Cinema, National Media Museum
See Suspiria as you’ve never seen it before! Since 1993, the National Media Museum’s Pictureville Cinema has been showcasing classic and timeless cinema to Widescreen enthusiasts from around the world. As part of Widescreen Weekend, BIFF 2011 is offering an extremely rare chance to see classic Argento horror Suspiria in all its large format glory. With Goblin’s legendary soundtrack presented in 4-track magnetic sound, this is a must for all fans of classic chillers.


Trouble Shooting panel and networking event
Saturday 19th March, 7pm, On Location Suite, National Media Museum
Making a feature with a massive budget is hard work; making a feature with little to no budget is near impossible.
Trouble Shooting brings together very special guests from the zombie movie world: Marc Price (director of Colin, known around the world as the ‘£40 zombie movie’), and directors whose films are screening in BIFF’s Northern Showcase strand, which includes the zombie-comedy Harold’s Going Stiff. All will be discussing the trials and tribulations of no- and low-budget filmmaking. With Nik Powell (Oscar-winning producer of The Crying Game) and chaired by Bill Lawrence of Reel Solutions, this is an event for anyone who wants to hear from the people who have made it work, offering inspiration to get out there and start shooting the next low budget sensation.
Special guest: Marc Price
The success of Colin has taken Marc Price around the world to as far afield as Japan, where Colin recently opened at cinemas across the country. Currently working on a follow up feature and several short film projects, Marc will reveal how a zombie film with no budget can achieve fame, acclaim and distribution around the world.
The panel discussion will be followed by a FREE networking event, providing aspiring filmmakers with the chance to meet key influential figures from the industry over a drink - an opportunity not to be missed!
