The diverse array of events make this the No 1 festival in my opinion. Who else can deliver so much entertainment covering all horror genres than the BSIFF team. Well done ( tips hat )

FB Image 2DECADENT DRAWING ARE TO MANAGE DARK ARTSDecadent Drawing is a partnership - Elaine Edmunds and Laurence Mitchell (Louse). Elaine works with mixed media, conducts the research and sorts out costumes, models and makeup. Laurence programmes the events, does the graphic design, the sets, films and music. There is usually a frank exchange of ideas! They are both part of the festival team and their knowledge and extreme thinking make them the ideal partnership to take over the mantle from Mark.Decadent Drawing bring an “ alternative“ approach to the experience of art. Formed at the beginning of 2013 partly as a response to the limitations of art education. They started with themed life drawing sessions which quickly developed into multi media events including music, film, drama, photography and creative writing although the focus is on presenting opportunities to draw. Having previously explored the tragic heroines of Grand Opera, the darkside of the hippy dream, the work of Edgar Allen Poe and Richard Dadd, Warhol's Factory and German Expressionism. They can be irreverent and enjoy mischief but also include aspects of social and cultural history. In ‘Taking Libertés’ the French Revolution session they reviewed the Reign of Terror, the history of the guillotine, court portraiture and the life and work of Madame Tussaud. The night concluded with a coconut shy of papier mache severed heads and audience participation to “I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts”.Decadent Drawing will be organising the relaunch of the art event ‘Dark Arts’ at the 2015 Bram Stoker International Film Festival and will be showing the incredible work of Dr. Paul Koudounaris.We are very fortunate to have made connection with Dr. Paul Koudounaris who is coming to Whitby to give a talk on his work on June 9th at La Rosa Hotel. This is especially exciting given his creative skill and reputation. The partnership hope to see where things lead and enjoy collaboration with like minded people and encourage participation. Over the last few years it has been a joy to be experimental with others and a number of contributors have gone on to do their own projects. These are exciting times for the festival and with Elaine and Laurence at the helm of the Dark Arts Exhibition as curators!Get in touch with them and keep up with all updates here -https://www.facebook.com/darkartsBSIFF

Brilliant and typical Eileen getting in with the 1st bite ! I bet she gets the festival into a conversation somewhere along the line. Good luck to her from the Bramily.
