The second annual Grindhouse Planet Film Festival premiered All Bad Things… on Sunday evening. Here I am afterwards, with organiser Marc Hamill. Also attending the event, held at The Shed in Leicester, were writer / director Chrissie Harper and associate producer Carl Timms, whose zombie comedy Still was having its final festival screening.
Update: As a result of this screening, All Bad Things… now has an IMDb entry.
As well as launching a new venue for its monthly meetings, Birmingham’s historic Gunmakers Arms, the Birmingham Horror Group held its first movie event on 7 January, when I got to introduce no fewer than 14 short films and a handful of trailers. Several of the directors sent along pre-recorded introductions, whilst local film-maker Carl Timms turned up to introduce his zombie comedy Still in person and discuss it with me afterwards on stage. The interview was filmed for Ghostwords TV, and Made In Birmingham TV wants to look at a three-minute extract for airing this Friday.
Update #1: Free tickets for the 4 February meeting are now available online.
Update #2: The extract was screened on 13 January as part of The Week with Carl Jones, and repeated twice during that weekend.
