What’s on offer?

Join us to showcase Frank Quitely’s short film Nothing to Declare. This will be followed by a short discussion between Frank Quitely and Professor Billy Grove on the film and the comic images on display.

What’s it about?

Frank Quitely, the artist behind acclaimed series including All-Star Superman, New X-Men, Batman and Robin, Jupiter's Circle, and many more, has turned writer for an Indiegogo-funded short horror film titled "Nothing to Declare. The film, from first-time producer Mal Young and BAFTA-winning director Will Adams, also features Quitely's character designs brought to life through Tom Bryant's CG art.

"The film's about a nineteen-year-old guy coming home, from being away from home backpacking. He's a real generous, well-meaning kind of guy," Quitely explains in the Indiegogo promotional video. "Something that he has done for his sister has consequences he could not have anticipated." "A lot of the horror really is psychological," Adams adds.
