If someone was to mention Other Worlds Festival, you might think of the experimental music and sound art event that Blackpool has been host to for the last 2 years. In fact, Other Worlds is branching out into other platforms starting with 4 days in October, when there will be an array of activities with one common theme; musical cinema.
The festival organisers, Rick Thompson and Carlito Juanito, have been successfully running their own record label Must Die Records for 7 years and they have a keen interest in promoting the arts and providing talent with a platform. Rick said, “it’s been great to watch Other Worlds develop out of Must Die Records, and we’re looking forward to watching it evolve further. We never set off with a mission-plan, it’s just grown organically by us wanting to support the music and art that we enjoy”.
The festival will run from 15-16 October and events will include local triple-threat Lindsay Bennett who will be premiering Lions & Tigers & Bears, (a film in which she not only co-stars, but has written and directed) plus a screening of Sleaford Mods documentary, Invisible Britain. Other Worlds alumni, Tse Tse Fly will be coming back all the way from Dubai to show a selection of curated Arabic music videos at Central Library. There will be silent films with live music soundtracks, among those providing the scores will be Isnaj Dui (another OtherWorlds veteran) and local bands, The Dropout Wives and Dü Pig.
There will also be a short music video competition, which like all of the scheduled events, is free of charge to enter, and open to everyone.
