Dead Northern Film Festival

United Kingdom

Founders of the Dead Northern Film Festival Joshua Lawson and Gareth Humphreys will be discussing how a beer festival evolved into a horror film festival, the challenges of hosting a live and safe event during the ever-changing COVID-19 lockdowns and tier system, the future of cinema and the role of film festivals for independent film after the pandemic, and why they're having a film festival with no films.

This talk is part of a series of virtual masterclasses by film and media practitioners, seeking to enable scholars and professionals in the field to share their experience and grow new partnerships. The series forms part of a strand within the newly established Creative Industries Research and Innovation Network (CIRIN) at Oxford Brookes University, which responds to the need for increased attention to the role of the creative industries in social, political and economic terms.
