With passes going on sale in just over a week, we thought we’d give you another taste of the 2023 film programme!

We can’t wait to show you Christploitation oddity (and anti-communist propaganda piece) IF FOOTMEN TIRE YOU, WHAT WILL HORSES DO?, one of the finest and wildest examples of the Ron Ormond’s cult repertoire – the drive-in exploitation filmmaker who survived a plane crash and turned to God, promoting the Good Word in the only way he knew how.

We continue in the spirit of exploitation with David Gregory’s ENTER THE CLONES OF BRUCE, a fascinating and insightful portrait of the people behind all those Bruceploitation classics – and we’ll get to see the spookiest one of all, THE DRAGON LIVES AGAIN (Law Kei), on the big screen too.

Jake West’s MANCUNIAN MAN: THE LEGENDARY LIFE OF CLIFF TWEMLOW is a thoroughly entertaining and warm portrait of a cinematic maverick and local legend – a bouncer, novelist, composer, screenwriter, producer, video nasties alumni, and most of all, a star!

Staying in northern England, THE MOOR (Chris Cronin) is a dark and incredibly atmospheric horror film taking us deep into Yorkshire’s moors as a young woman investigates the disappearance of her childhood friend some 25 years on.

IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS (Rachel Kempf & Nick Toti) is an up, close and personal film in which a married, horror-obsessed couple buy a run-down house to make the film of their dream, only for fact and fiction to clash.

And finally (for now), inventive Australian debut PSYCHOSIS (Pirie Martin) is an experience like no other, placing the audience alongside criminal fixer Cliff Van Aarle, whose mental state gives him an edge in an increasingly bizarre and psychedelic case.

Festival passes go on sale 10am, Monday 2 October, and you can find out the details here. Stay tuned for lots more announcements about our guests and special events, coming soon!
