with Certified (Short – UK Premiere)
Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way – on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina’s led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see – the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that accompanies these wonders in his life. But it doesn’t take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina’s meddling mother, »
There’s unlikely to be a review of Before Dawn written that doesn’t mention director and star Dominic Brunt’s Emmerdale connection. Brunt has starred as Paddy Kirk on the long running soap since 1997, and is one of the show’s most recognisable stars.
What many people perhaps do not know, is that Dominic is a huge fan of the horror genre, even going so far as to host the Leeds horror festival on an annual basis. And now, Brunt has taken the next logical step and has directed and starred in Before Dawn.
Brunt’s wife Joanne Mitchell stars alongside her husband, and was responsible for the story behind the film. She produced a detailed scene-by-scene breakdown and then enlisted the help of another Emmerdale connection, »

Two more films have been added to the Grimmfest 2012 lineup - one feature and one short - and we have all the details you need right here! Grimmfest runs 4th-7th October in the UK at Manchester's The Dancehouse theatre.
The feature film is Before Dawn, which was born from an argument between husband and wife Dominic Brunt and Joanne Mitchell. The film's original concept came from two opposing opinions of what makes a good zombie movie and what frequently makes a bad one. What's missing and what needed adding to. Before Dawn is the result.
A weekend away. An idyllic cottage nestled within the rolling hills of the English Dales.

Special Event: Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut
The turbulent production of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed is the stuff of legend, and the film released in 1990 was a far cry from Barker’s original novella, with many significant scenes excised by the film’s producers. Presumed lost for over twenty years, the footage surfaced in the form of two separate workprints and has been integrated with scenes from the original theatrical version to create The Cabal Cut – a fully fleshed-out monster epic that captures Clive Barker’s original vision in vivid detail. »
