ASH MORRIS : A BRITISH FILMMAKER TO WATCH

user
2010 -  The world was introduced to the Crawleys and their personnel. “Downton Abbey” took viewers by storm. I’m bed-ridden. I’m fighting a letter that more often than not, carries a death sentence.  Years pass by, I travel extensively in-between treatement sessions, I co-produce a documentary, and I write a lot. I’m young but I feel a higher sense of urgency. I eventually conquered, the beast is down.  2017 -  R...

WHY call it the HOLLYWEED FILM FESTIVAL ?

Did you know that in 2017, after marijuana was legalized in California, an artist/prankster climbed up to the sign, at night, in the rain and altered the world famous sign from Hollywood to Hollyweed, thus causing an international news story and creating a psychological disruption for the business as usual residents of Los Angeles. We aim to disrupt business as usual with the Hollyweed Film Festival. You know the drill, submit your film, pay the fee and never hear back from whatever festiva...

Fantasy Filmfest 2018 Day 2: The Good, the Brilliant and the Unbearable

  By LINDSAY R. BELLINGER   Well, the second day of the Fantasy Filmfest came and went. It had its ups and its downs. Let's start with the good even though it was at times a tad confusing. Irish director-writer Anthony Byrne co-wrote "In Darkness" with his fiancé, the formidable actress Natalie Dormer. Technically, the film is stylish and keeps one's attention, especially in the first act although some plot points become a bit perplexing later...

BEYOND: The Film Festival

This June we will launch our first annual film festival, celebrating the many facets of the art of storytelling through cinema. Featuring screenplay and short film competitions that are far beyond ordinary, this four-day festival takes place right here in downtown Cary, NC.

Cary-Theater_Beyond-Film-Festival

We’re attracting filmmakers from across the country who’ve submitted their screenplays and short films (>30 minutes) embodying some unusual incarnations of this year’s “Hometown Stories” theme. Join us for a weekend of fun and an enjoyable cinematic experience open to the community.

WHY BEYOND?

The roots of our slogan “Beyond Ordinary” originate from the Town’s moniker from the late 1700s as Bradford’s Ordinary. It represents our mission of providing a unique setting to experience affordable art house cinema. As we launch our inaugural festival this year, we invite you to participate in what we expect to be a unique cultural arts experience here in the Town of Cary.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE FILM FESTIVAL

Attendees will enjoy the best short films we can find from filmmakers far and wide, including a selection of invited feature-length films, and short film and screenplay submissions. The festival will offer a stimulating sneak-peek into the minds of filmmakers and showcase the bedrock of cinema: the screenplay. Join us for social events and other fun activities to make the festival one you won’t want to miss!

FOR FILMMAKERS AND SCREEN WRITERS

Competition Short Films must have been completed after January 1, 2016 and should not exceed 30 minutes in length, including credits. All non-English language films must have English subtitles. Films must embody this year’s theme of “Hometown Stories,” but are not limited to genre.

Psychomanteum

Director: Ray Brady.

Synopsis: An independently produced film, eight short psychological films to comprise a portmanteau feature, collaboration between Ray Brady (five excerpts) and three other Directors excerpts Jason Martin “The Language of Birds”, Asa Taulbut “Fallen” & Jamie Drew “The Stranger”.

Long synopsis: Shot over seven years on a self-financed micro-budget, “Psychomanteum” is a collaboration between four British filmmakers consisting of eight interlinking highly disturbing short stories that are in turn horrific, fantastical or science fiction scenarios. All the films were shot in and around London in the UK, with a purposeful emphasis on psychological visceral aspects of terror rather than the physical portrayal of horror.
