American The Bill Hicks Story at Curzon Soho Feb 25th

Proudly announcing the official Bill Hicks 25th anniversary screening of American The Bill Hicks Story. The Curzon Soho, 6.15pm on Monday Feb 25th with Steve Hicks Skype Q&A plus Chris Bould (director of Revelations) & the directors onstage, plus special guest host TBA. 


American The Bill Hicks Story is the true life story of the outlaw comic who tried to save the world. Bill Hicks died on Feb 26th 1994, and since then his reputation has only grown. Regularly voted one of the top comics of all time, this award winning documentary recounts his fascinating and ultimately uplifting life story, told by those that knew him best.

Considered the definitive film on Hicks’ life, it premiered at London Film Festival and SXSW, was 6th on the iTunes All Time Bestsellers chart, and the 2nd highest grossing documentary in UK cinemas that year, and was nominated for a Grierson award.

Horror News review

“I’m still in awe of Matt Harlock’s and Krent Able’s Deep Clean, after the success of another British horror short Salt, it’s easy to see that British Horror is absolutely smashing it this year. Deep Clean undoubtedly stole the show and my heart, I can’t wait to see more of this.”
Thanks to Bryony of Horror News who pulled this together from the Frightfest Halloween extravaganza.

Ink Cocks award at sochi FFA

The Sochi Film Festival gave Ink, Cocks & Rock'n'Roll a diploma of recognition on Friday night in the short film category, one of only two short film awards given. The event at The Soho Hotel was host to guest of honour Stephen Frears and Nick Nolte - and some excellent mini-sliders. Thanks to Charles Stewart at Sochi for passing on the reaction of the Russian filmmakers in the audience at the Sochi Dec screening - who were apparently inspired by the film and Krent's work.
