Re: Best 5 of the festival

Either I was the only person here to see it, or I completely misjudged it but I’m amazed nobody else is ranking The Laplace’s Demon. Such a smart premise, brilliantly constructed with clockwork precision and looks straight out of the 30s or 40s. It had a real Fermat’s Room or (retro) Cube feel to i...

Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

I also disagree with the whole ‘if you have a question you can ask the filmmaker in the foyer’ thing. I often don’t have a question (or have the nerve to ask) but always love to hear other peoples’ questions as they’ve often spotted something I didn’t and bring out extra interesting nuggets about th...

Re: The Laplace's Demon

Actually my film of the festival this one. I’m a sucker for this kind of self-contained and claustrophobic thriller. It was so intricately put together it seemed to me like something Christopher and Jonathon Nolan might make.

Such a shame so few others seem to have seen it however :(

Re: Discovery/first blood tks

Admittedly I’ve only been doing this about 7 years but this is unquestionably the best booking system I’ve experienced FF using in this time. At its worst, I recall a system where you were in a virtual queue for half an hour then chose your seat only to get an obscure error nobody understood and thr...

Re: TBC Saturday 25th

Curious... I wonder how they gauge which screenings are popular? Right now it looks like most stuff is booked up.

Would be cool if FF ran a poll or something on Twitter to decide :#

Re: Discovery/first blood tks

Not the speediest of processes this year sadly- I was averaging 10 minutes a ticket for the first hour. If the booking system struggles this much, would it be worth considering staggering the ticket releases somehow? In any case, once the system got back up to speed, I did eventually manage to get t...

Re: TBC Saturday 25th

I didn’t even think to look there :o

Fair enough- that’s a little disappointing but at least the mystery’s solved now :|

TBC Saturday 25th

Not to pester, but do we have any idea when the TBC film on the Saturday in the Cineworld screen at 23:30 will be announced? Getting quite curious, especially as we're only a few days away from the Discovery screen tickets becoming available :o

Re: FrightFest 2017 Schedulers

Ian replied on the facebook page to someone planning their clashes: I would hang off doing this if I was you. You're only going to have to do it again when I finally add all the exact timings in the run-up to the single tickets going on sale on 29 July. That sounds like the whole film order could c...
