FrightFest Glasgow 2014 Info

Post by iomega » Mon Dec 16, 2013 8:37 am

FrightFest Glasgow 14 - Team FrightFest is devilishly delighted to do the honours once again as part of the brilliant Glasgow Film Festival with a line-up of movies so new to the festival circuit, so different and so startling, you really won’t believe your retina-grazed eyes.

Dates for 2014 are the 28th of February and the 1st of March. The full line up and guests will be announced on Tuesday 21st and tickets will go on sale on Friday 24th January. The full eleven film line-up will unspool at our usual haunt in screen one at the Glasgow Film Theatre on Friday 28th February from 2 pm and on Saturday 1st March from 11 am. Tickets £70.

Because the demand for tickets for the event has grown to the level that passes available sell out, we have taken the decision, along with the lovely people at the GFT, to increase the number of tickets on sale. As a result, only the £70 passes will be available for the two day event. To cater for those who just want to see individual films we are delighted to announce the addition of a series of Sunday repeats in the Cineworld, Renfrew Street to our line up. Tickets for these screenings will be £8.50.

From Thursday Feb 27 to Sunday March 2, the UK’s favourite horror fantasy festival returns to its second home at the Glasgow Film Festival for the 9th year with an impressive slate of the hottest new horror films.

Welcome to a long weekend of wonderful weirdness as Film4 FrightFest Glasgow enters a world of, gritty serial killers, stark staring horror, comic book thrills and spills, favourite maniacs, sci-fi delirium, doc shock and mind-bending mystery.

Some of FrightFest’s favourite filmmakers take centre-stage this year, including Ti West, who has teamed up with producer Eli Roth for the cult of the damned shocker THE SACRAMENT. As well as screening the film, FrightFest’s Alan Jones will be talking to Ti at a special presentation on Thursday February 27 at the GFT Screen 2.

FrightFest also welcomes director Jake West and producer Marc Morris, who will be introducing the world premiere of VIDEO NASTIES: DRACONIAN DAYS, their sequel to the critically acclaimed VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP & VIDEOTAPE documentary. It promises to provide even more engaging knowledge and sobering insight into the heinous blot on 1980s film culture. The screening will be followed by a (no doubt) lively panel discussion.

FrightFest is also hosting the world premiere of THE SCRIBBLER, based on Dan Shaffer’s bestselling graphic novel featuring a super-hot cast. Director John Suits, producer of CHEAP THRILLS, will be in attendance.

As will Jordan Barker, director of the terrific sucker punch home invasion chiller TORMENT, starring Katharine Isabelle, which will receive its European premiere,

Also attending is Indiana writer/director Zack Parker, with the UK premiere of his extraordinary film PROXY, a daring and highly original chiller. Parker has slowly been building a following with INEXCHANGE, QUENCH and SCALENE and will be flying in from the USA to talk about his burgeoning career.

Other UK premieres on show are the bigger and wickeder WOLF CREEK 2 and KILLERS, a dark, twisted tale from the Mo Brothers duo of Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto. Then there are two highly impressive feature debuts - Cliff Prowse and Derek Lee’s AFFLICTED, a clever spin on the found-footage trend and Spanish director Jorge Dorado’s probing, twisty MINDSCAPE starring Mark Strong.

Plus there are Scottish premieres for the Sci-fi shocker ALMOST HUMAN directed by Joe Begos and director Michael S. Ojeda’s provocative and compelling SAVAGED.

So excited, the line-up looks really exciting! Have already booked hotel and trains (all the way from Brighton) so really hope we can get tickets... When on Friday will they go on sale and where do we get them from?

Video Nasties part two, particularly looking forward to that. The first doc was excellent.

Got our tickets and mega excited. We've done many Londons and a couple of all-nighters (regional) but this'll be our first Glasgow.

Quick question for the veterans: Is there a Glasgow equivelant of the Phoenix Artists Club where we can all discuss the films or get ruinously boozed-up afterwards? (Asking for a friend).
