Mayhem Film Festival originally started as a single collection of short films before growing into the four-day weekend it is now, and so its Short Film Showcase remains at the heart of the festival with its traditional Saturday slot, and one of the most popular and beloved events of the programme each year.
"This year we have something for everybody: from scary short shockers, to thought provoking science fiction, from the genuinely creepy, to the full-on gory, all from some of the most promising new directors out there around the world... and closer to home." - Chris Cooke, Mayhem Film Festival Co-Director.
Mayhem's full line-up was revealed last week and individual tickets, day passes and full festival passes will go on sale at 10AM on Tuesday 12 September.
Mayhem Film Festival takes place on 12-15 October 2017 at Broadway, Nottingham.

We are proud to reveal our full line-up ahead of our 12th edition on 13-16 October at Broadway, Nottingham.
Joining The Duke St Workshop, who will open the festival with a live performance of Tales of HP Lovecraft featuring cult horror actor Laurence R. Harvey (Human Centipede II and III); and Steve Barker who will be presenting his new film The ReZort; we will also welcome British director Gareth Tunley for a screening of The Ghoul; and Billy O'Brien for I Am Not A Serial Killer. Astron-6's Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski will close the festival with a screening of The Void and will be joined by producer Casey Walker. We previously welcomed Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney from cult film collective Astron-6 in 2014.
One of Mayhem's most diverse editions, the programme also includes Italy's They Call Me Jeeg Robot and the UK Premiere of Headshot from Indonesia's Mo Brothers – both previously announced – as well as preview screenings of Julia Ducournau's remarkable debut and Cannes-hit, Raw, Emiliano Rocha Minter's "fairy tale for adults", We Are The Flesh, hilarious horror-comedy Don't Kill It from the director of Big Assed Spider and starring Dolph Lundgren, and Kiyoshi Kurosawa's latest film, Creepy, about a criminal psychologist and his suspicious neighbours. From the archives, we will screen Mario Bava's Planet of the Vampires, which has been restored and remastered under the supervision of Nicolas Winding Refn, as well as H.G. Lewis's Blood Feast.
With a total of 17 screenings and events, our 2016 edition will also see the return of Mayhem's Short Film Programme and the fiendish Mayhem quiz, The Flinterrogation hosted by author David Flint.
