While the Giallo parody is already playing the Toronto International Film Festival, the Mayhem Film Festival will open this year’s tenth edition with a special evening with members of Canadian cult filmmaking collective Astron-6 and a preview screening of their new feature The Editor.
Astron-6, the collective behind Father’s Day, Manborg and last year’s hit short Bio-Cop, will present their most ambitious project to date, The Editor, a 70s Italian giallo-inspired comedy in which a one time (and one-handed) master film editor becomes the prime suspect in a series of brutal murders. They also provided us with a second retro one-sheet.
Adam Brooks (Father’s Day), Matthew Kennedy (Manborg) and Conor Sweener (Manborg) – three-fifths of Astron-6 – will attend Mayhem and present a short film showcase of some of their previous work, and take part in a post-screening Q&A following the preview of The Editor.
Astron-6 will open Mayhem Film Festival’s 10th edition on Thursday 30 October. More information about the programme will be announced soon. Early Bird Passes for the festival are available at the discounted price of £55. For more information and to book your passes, please visit the official website.
