Re: Discovery screen 'nepotism'.

Wonderfully put Mal! And CRUEL SUMMER is a great example of a film to go in blind on. What a brutal one.

Re: Discovery screen 'nepotism'.

Definitely the case with the inception of the DISCOVERY Screen[s] back in 2009 were highlighting the more esoteric, lower budget and left of field entries from an increasingly busy market, giving films a chance to play a large and prestigious film festival that may otherwise not have a platform. Now...

Re: FILMMAKER EVENTS

Hi man, Firstly yes there is usually a directors lunch over the course of the festival where attending directors that have films in the festival can mingle in.

Re: Discovery Screen Tickets

I think we can rest assure that you guys scoped out every possible auditorium space in the whole of London and have found the best for all needs.

Re: Films For Glasgow 2017

47 METRES DOWN is genuinely fantastic and has some sensational scares in it. Would be a fun screening. Some more possibilities: WITHIN / Crawlspace from Phil Claydon (Lesbian Vampire Killers & Alone FrightFest alum) CUT LITTLE BUGGERS “Gremlins meets Hot Fuzz set in the English countryside.” SAFE NE...

Films For Glasgow 2017

So here's a real interesting one, and maybe a tad premature, but what films do you want / expect to see at Glasgow FrightFest 2017? Unlike last year where there was a plethora of larger genre titles that had done festival rounds but not made it to the UK, this year's big name crop is a hell of a lot...

Re: World Premieres

Another thing worth note, that hasn't really been advertised much, but FRIGHTFEST have a 'First Blood' strand added this year, much like their Retro Strand takeover on Discovery Screen 3 on Sunday. So on Saturday 27th, on Discovery Screen 2, all the films featured are World Premieres of British genr...

Re: World Premieres

World Premieres can oft lead to two lines of thought: Glass half full "wow what an amazing scoop & exclusive opportunity" and glass half empty "is there a reason this hasn't been screened before".

Re: Frightfest report needed!

Hi there; would be more than happy to write a wee festival overview if the vacancy is still available.

Examples of my writing can be found here; and I've written pieces for the festival brochure in the past too.
