Currently winning a variety of awards on the festival circuit, AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS is a triumph of both British low budget filmmaking and for talent in the North East, as both BAFTA Nominated producer Jack Tarling and writer Gavin Williams are North East-based filmmakers. The film was supported through development by Northern Film + Media.
It’s Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly – an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously: ‘Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions’. As the television exerts an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.
AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS has won six awards at festivals so far, and was chosen as a Critics Pick by the New York Times when it was released in the states in October.
Join the special screening on Friday 7th December at Tyneside Cinema which will be followed by a live Q&A with Jack Tarling and Gavin Williams.
