Interview – Paul Cotgrove – Horror-On-Sea Film Festival

horror-on-sea

                                                                                             ‘Niki Cornish Photography’ @NikiCPhoto

The Horror-On-Sea film festival is in it’s fourth year and going from strength to strength. Taking place in Southend, horror fans come from all over the country to celebrate some of the best independent horror from across the globe over two weekends.
I managed to attend a couple of screenings including the premiere of local film-maker Pat Higgins latest film House On The Witchpit which was an excellent psychological horror and before that an equally excellent and hilarious short called Blanche Dumas from B to Z which is a mockumentary about a fading scream queen. Having attended most years there is always a lovely atmosphere and everything is superbly run.
On the second weekend of the festival I managed to sit down with festival director Paul Cotgrove and chat about the festival and also the Southend Film Festival which will be taking part in May and is also growing every year. You can listen to our chat below.
Picture above is Paul with projectionists Heather and Richard.
You can find out more about the festivals and work The White Bus (which is the company which puts on the festivals and many other events) at the below links.
