Derby Film Festival
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen…. Wait a minute, that’s not right. It might feel like we’ve all been battling through the Labyrinth for most of 2020 but 2020 like the Goblin King, has no power over us! Derby Film Festival is back for its seventh instalment!
Derby Film Festival welcomes back the twice delayed Paracinema Film Festival as they combine to bring you a double punch of great cinema this November.
On the DFF front we have some great feature films selected from our submission drive covering Fallen Angels (Two Bad), Kidnapped Children (The Badger), Cuban music (Mambo Man), the Horror Festival scene (The Horror Crowd), Nature Vs Man (Anonymous Animals) and a truly beautiful family film in The End Of Heroes.
All this as well as over 50 short films playing in curated programmes.
Over at Paracinema Film Festival, there is whole host of great genre cinema including two new acid westerns (one from Columbia and one from Kidderminster), an interesting take on found footage in VHyes and their own collection of eclectic shorts.
See you at the movies!
