Join Matthew Holness for the evening as he introduces a screening of his debut feature POSSUM as well as discussing his film and TV career so far including the cult show GARTH MARENGHI’S DARKPLACE (first broadcast on C4 on 29 Jan 2004 almost 16 years to the day!), as well as short films including A GUN FOR GEORGE (2011).


POSSUM is a dark and distinctive psychological horror film following a disgraced children’s puppeteer Philip (Sean Harris), who returns to his childhood home intent on destroying Possum, a hideous puppet he keeps hidden inside a brown leather bag. When his attempts fail, Philip is forced to confront his sinister stepfather Maurice (Alun Armstrong) in an effort to escape the dark horrors of his past.
