"Fantastiq news! Derby to host new fantasy film festival

Summer 2013 slot confirmed at one of the UK’s leading indie cinemas

QUAD and Reel Solutions are proud to announce FANTASTIQ, a new three-day film and TV festival focusing on fantasy, sci-fi and horror. Fans of the genre will be thrilled and chilled to learn that this exciting new venture is born of a dynamic partnership between QUAD, one of the best independent cinemas in the country, and Reel Solutions, the respected Yorkshire-based film bureau known for its work on an array of festivals across the UK.

The first edition of FANTASTIQ will take place on the weekend of August 9-11 2013 at Derby QUAD, the vibrant three-screen complex in the centre of Derby that enjoys a reputation for intelligent film programming. FANTASTIQ will form part of an acclaimed annual programme that already includes iDFest, Whooverville, and Edge-Lit making Derby one of the strongest hubs for genre film programming in the country.

As its name suggests FANTASTIQ will be heavily rooted in “films fantastique”. Fantasy film fans can look forward to the best of the gory, glory days of Universal, AIP, Hammer and Amicus as well as European shockers, forgotten gems from the vaults and an array of cult figures on the guest list.

Plans for 2013 include a 50th anniversary celebration of Doctor Who and centenary screenings dedicated to the late, great master of fantastic cinema Peter Cushing (1913-1994).

Programming will be led by Reel Solutions’ Tony Earnshaw and QUAD’s Adam J Marsh

Adam J Marsh, Cinema Programmer at QUAD says: “It is great to be able to bring Fantastiq to Derby. Fantasy, science-fiction and horror play a strong part in the British film industry, in its past, present and future, so it is an honour to be able to represent genre cinema with this wonderful three-day festival.”

Tony Earnshaw, Programming & Festivals Director at Reel Solutions says: “We are delighted to be working with QUAD. We wanted to do something different to the standard genre film festival and we were thrilled that our partners at QUAD shared our enthusiasm and vision. We look forward to making Fantastiq a unique and must-attend annual fixture on the festival calendar.”

Tony Earnshaw has a reputation as one of the UK’s leading genre film programmers having organised the popular Fantastic Films Weekend in Bradford for 10 years. He was previously Head of Film Programming at the National Media Museum in Bradford and artistic director of Bradford International Film Festival for 12 years. He was part of the project team that helped deliver Bradford’s designation as the world’s first UNESCO City of Film and has programmed for the National Film Theatre in London. He is also a journalist, broadcaster and award-winning author specialising in the cinema.

Adam J Marsh has more than10 years’ experience in independent cinema culminating in his current position as QUAD’s cinema programmer and Director of iDFest. He has overseen QUAD’s growth in commerce and reputation over the past three years. He is also a screenwriter - whose debut feature film Devil’s Tower is currently in post production - and a freelance lecturer on Sheffield Hallam’s Screenwriting BA course"

Tony posted an update over at the BHF forum...

Quote
Announcing a new (largely) retro fantasy film (and TV) festival to serve those dedicated aficionados of horror, sci-fi and fantasy. From the creators of the Fantastic Films Weekend comes a fresh stab at resurrecting the gory, glory days of Hammer, Universal, AIP, Amicus, Tyburn, Tigon and those other fear factories of yore. Expect to bump into some familiar faces: Chaney, Karloff, Lugosi, Rathbone, Price, Cushing, Lee et al. And it's not just horror. Fantastiq aims to be a hub for lovers of all forms of fantasy cinema with some classic sci-fi thrown in for good measure.

Interesting news, does this mean no more FFFestival? (Not that I went at all this year after the prevalence of so many DVD prints)

I will keep my eyes on this and certainly pop down if there are some interesting screenings.

It doesn't necessarily mean the end of the Fantastic Films Weekend at the Media Museum, just means that Tony Earnshaw is no longer involved.

Does anyone fancy making this event the first official lovelockandload forum members meet up?

Halifax is easy to get to by train so why not pencil it in when a date is set and all meet up?

What about the 'Art of the Nasty' launch that Elaine wouldn't let you go to? Surely that is the second one?

I think I need to redefine the criteria for what makes an official meet. Pedant.
