TripleSix – A New International Horror Film Festival for Manchester UK in 2017
Two of Britain’s leading horror websites, UK Horror Scene and The Slaughtered Bird, have teamed up to bring the UK a new horror film festival in May 2017.
TripleSix will be a 2-day horror film festival in Manchester over the Bank Holiday weekend 27th & 28th of May 2017. Not only that, but TripleSix have partnered with AMC cinema in Manchester to bring the best in comfort, state-of-the-art facilities and professionalism.
Andy Deen, owner and editor of UK Horror Scene, said “This is something ourselves and the guys from The Slaughtered Bird have been talking about for a while, and when the opportunity to partner with AMC came along then it just felt like a perfect fit.”
“There are many wonderful UK horror festivals but we felt that there was a gap in the Spring for another and that we wanted to give independent horror features and shorts a chance to be viewed on the BIG SCREEN in front of a horror obsessed audience, and over the 2 days we hope to screen up to 10 features as well as many shorts.”
Steve Harper, co-founder of The Slaughtered Bird, said “We are involved in horror daily and it is our lives. We see the immense talent both here in the UK and from around the world and wanted to give these amazing independent artists a chance to screen their work, and TripleSix will be a truly international horror festival.”
As well as features and shorts, TripleSix will also have an area for stall holders to share their wares. There will be FULL weekend passes available as well as day Tickets and even individual feature screenings – all in the wonderful setting of the iconic Great Northern Warehouse in Deansgate, Manchester, which is the home to AMC and their 16-screen cinema.
Chris Barnes, co-founder of The Slaughtered Bird, said “It’s great to team up with UK Horror Scene and I think it shows the real togetherness in the true independent horror community, which is something we aim to bring to Manchester for TripleSix. We are all very excited to see what features and shorts we can find to make AMC tremble with terror next May!”
