This year's trailer was created through a collaboration between Mayhem and Confetti Institute for Creative Technologies in Nottingham. Students on Confetti's Film and TV course were given the task of pitching ideas for a festival trailer, working off a brief designed by Mayhem and Broadway. Some great ideas came through the process, and one of them, directed by Jack Booth, was chosen to become this year's festival trailer. Lots of thanks to Confetti and all the students who took part in the process.
