Arrow Video FrightFest 2019 announces more guests, special events & shortlist for Screen Genre Rising Star Award.
FrightFest and FAB Press once again join forces to launch THE FRIGHTFEST GUIDE TO WEREWOLF MOVIES, which goes exclusively on sale during Arrow Video FrightFest 2019, Aug 22 – Aug 27. Both the author Gavin Baddeley and filmmaker Neil Marshall, who wrote the foreword, will be present to sign copies.
Genre expert Paul McEvoy and award-winning film director Tom Lawes, owner of Electric Cinema Birmingham & Electric Flix, have teamed up to launch BACKLIGHT CONSULTING, a specialist agency providing a range of services to support the international film industry, focusing on film production (from script pitch to distribution), exhibition and film festival strategy and start-ups.
Writer and director Mitzi Peirone’s Braid was one of the films at last year’s FrightFest which seemed to divide the audience, prompting intense reactions in everyone I spoke to about it.
