Many thanks to Grapevine Birmingham for its promotion of our forthcoming film event: “A macabre menu of dark delights from around the world will be served up on 25 March, when the Birmingham Horror Group hosts its second annual ‘Mini-Movie Marathon’.
“The event, in aid of the charity Diabetes UK, is being held at the Victoria pub on John Bright Street and has already attracted spinechilling submissions from film-makers as far afield as India, Brazil, Australia and the Russian Federation — plus a “fear few” from the West Midlands.
“‘The horror genre embraces everything from psychological thrillers and bizarre monsters to supernatural terror and twisted comedy,’ said festival organiser Steve Green, ‘and we plan to reflect that full range in those films we’ll be screening.’
“The event launches at 6pm and tickets are £3.00, bookable online via Eventbrite (https://tinyurl.com/ycqzhuxx). Further details of the event are available via the group’s website (http://www.birmingham-horror.co.uk/).”
Many thanks to Mike Sales at Midlands Movies for his coverage of this month’s Mini-Movie Marathon.
We thought it would be a useful tool for UK horror fans to have a central list of forthcoming conventions, festivals, etc. Further events will be listed as we become aware of them. If you’re involved with one we haven’t included, please drop us a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment below. There’s no charge, just the hope that everyone has a great time.
