ENDED Starburst International Film Festival

On March 13th & 14th, a celebration of Independent Genre Film comes to The Landing, MediaCityUK.

The STARBURST International Film Festival is a celebration of genre movies; offering the best of cult, independent, horror, sci-fi, and fantasy – both classic revivals and new releases.

Our 2019 festival was a great success, and welcomed cult screenwriter and director Luigi Cozzi, as well as the legendary President of Troma Entertainment himself, Lloyd Kaufman! In receipt of our hall of fame award, Lloyd was also around for the whole festival, including a very insightful Q&A. At our previous festivals, we hosted such luminaries as famed James Bond director John Glen and extreme horror legend Jörg Buttgereit, actors Virginia Hey, Caroline Munro, and Martine Beswick. As well as established names, we also support up and coming independent film, hosting panels with independent filmmakers from all over the world.
