From the fest:

To celebrate our Guest of Honour Lloyd Kaufman we’ll be showing the Troma classic The Toxic Avenger and his latest opus Return to Return to Nuke ‘em High aka Volume 2, which has something to offend everyone but does so in riotous fashion.

Other new films to be screened include the UK Premiere of the brilliant horror satire on popularity culture Clickbait, directed by Sophia Cacciola and Michael J. Epstein, and the English Premiere of Lawrie Brewster’s new cinematic nightmare Automata. We also have the UK Premiere of The Fare, a fabulous romantic time loop film from director D.C. Hamilton. Find out more about a controversial part of Chinese entertainment is examined in Category III: The Untold Story of Hong Kong Cinema, directed by Calum Waddell and featuring insights from many of the directors and actors from the scene.

There’s also a chance to see the brilliant Polterheist, directed by David Gilbank, a mix of comedy, gangsters, and ghosts that will bring the house down.

We're also delighted to be screening two short films from director Izzy Lee - My Monster and For a Good Time, Call...
