QUAD to screen Derby UFO movie

It starts with a blackout, all power and communications down. Hours later city-sized UFOs invade the world’s skies, then the war begins….. 

UFO – a movie filmed in Derby last summer is finally being released and is having its premiere screening at QUAD.

Almost a thousand Derby residents were cast in the feature film, directed by Dominic Burns, which was shot in locations across the city including Allestree’s Park Farm. The film screens at QUAD from Saturday December 15 until December 20.

Adam Buss, director of audience engagement at QUAD, said: “UFO and Dominic Burns are both fantastic success stories for Derby and fit with our ethos of being rooted in Derby but speaking to the world.

“Dominic has worked with us on a number of events including our regular ‘80s themed film nights ‘Crossing the Streams’ and we are really proud to celebrate his latest success story. We are committed to showing the best cinema from around the world and wherever possible celebrate the work of Derby-based film makers of which Dominic is a shining example.”

The film stars Bianca Bree, Sean Brosnan (son of Pierce), Julian Glover (Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade), Sean Pertwee and Jean Claude Van Damme.

UFO follows five friends who attempt to navigate their way to survival amidst deteriorating chaos as the world descends into terror and anarchy during an alien invasion and interstellar war.
