Celluloid Screams have announced the opening film of the festival’s 2014 edition will be ‘The Editor’, the highly anticipated new film from Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6. The makers of ‘Father’s Day’ and ‘Manborg’ return with their own unique take on the Italian giallo, starring genre icons Udo Kier, Lawrence Harvey and Tristan Risk, which will officially open Celluloid Screams 2014 on Friday 24th October.
Astron-6 co-founders Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney will attend the festival as special guests to present ‘The Editor’ and also a retrospective screening of Astron-6 short films, both of which will be followed by Q&As.
Celluloid Screams Festival Director Robert Nevitt said:
“Anyone who has attended Celluloid Screams in the past will know that we have an ongoing obsession with Astron-6, and we’re extremely pleased to be opening our 2014 edition with their most ambitious film to date. As if this wasn’t exciting enough, we’re thrilled to be welcoming Adam, Matt and Conor in person to the festival to showcase their extraordinary body of work ”
