STEPHEN VOLK Q&A
We are delighted to welcome Stephen Volk to Paracinema!
Stephen will be talking about his long career in horror from films like Gothic and The Awakening, to television shows that have terrified a nation like Afterlife and the legendary Ghostwatch. We’ll also be touching upon his stellar novels and novellas like Studio Of Screams (2020) and Under A Raven’s Wing (2021) and having a 35th Anniversary screening of the Ken Russell directed Gothic.
Join us for a Q&A with Stephen followed by a 35th Anniversary screening of Gothic on Friday 24th September.
Video Nasties Discussion Panel
We’re taking a look at the Video Nasty era this Paracinema and the only way to do that effectively is through a panel discussion!
We’re welcoming filmmaker Jake West and Producer Marc Morris (Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship and Videotapes), David Hyman from the BBFC and John Martin (author of the VN book Seduction Of The Gullible) to get down to finer details over the whole period.Book Tickets Now
