Mayhem launches new website, call for short films and early bird passes


We know it was a little tricky to find out all you needed to know about Mayhem in the past, so we've created this new platform offering easy access to essential information about the festival, as well as its history and legacy. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

We're currently working on this year's festival - our 12th edition (!!) - and we have a couple of announcements to make.

Firstly, our Early Bird passes are now available to purchase! Early Bird passes give you access to the full festival, which will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 13-16 October 2016. The passes are available for a limited period of time and cost just £60 for four days of exciting previews, special guests and events, showcasing the best horror, sci-fi and cult features and shorts from around the world. To purchase an Early Bird pass, please click HERE or contact the Broadway box office on 0115 952 6611.

Secondly, we are now accepting short film submissions for our Scary Shorts strand. Mayhem originally started as a single compilation of short films, and the Scary Shorts remains the most loved and one of the most popular screenings in the festival's schedule. There is no fee for submissions, and we are accepting local, national and international entries. You can submit your film for free until midnight on Friday 19 August - simply email Melissa Gueneau at

That's all for now! We will bring more news about this year's programme very soon. You can sign up to our newsletter if you would like to receive all of our announcements straight into your inbox, or just keep an eye on our website.
