"I would like to thank Adam and everyone at QUAD involved with the Paracinema weekend.

I had a brilliant time, the range of films was excellent and had many intriguing films you will not be able to see in many other places." Satu Sarkas-Bosman, Paracinema 2018 Passholder


Paracinema Shorts offers a chance to discover a Scottish council ghostbusting duo, the bride of Frankenstein, a voiceless songbird, vampires, serial killers, Korean robots, crazy animation, fox heads, home invasion and the horror host we all need in our lives…


Paracinema is based at QUAD – Derby and almost all screenings will take place there. For information on visiting QUAD please visit the QUAD website.
