‘A Terribly Good film festival’ makes it’s debut in Neath’s Gwyn Hall this September featuring films that are so bad that they are must-sees.

We caught up with the curator and part time contributor to On The Qt, Jamie Hughes to ask him what inspired him to start the film festival…

QT: We love the idea of a festival of films that wouldn’t normally get praise, what gave you the idea to do start the ‘Terribly Good’ film festival?

JH: “We all know watching a bad film on your own can be soul destroying, but you can have a great time watching one with a crowd with the boos and hissing.”

QT: Agreed! Have you ever been forced to watched a bad film or a good film so much you hated it?

JH: “In my old job I used to have to sit in a cinema for every show. I once watched Enemy of the State 5 times in a day. Every time I see a clip on TV I have cold shivers.”

QT: That sounds awful! That’s too much Will Smith for one day! How hard was it to pick the films for this years festival? Did you hold back any favourites for next year?

JH: “Some of these films pick themselves such as Plan 9 From Outer Space and Battlefield Earth. The Room was recommended by a friend. I have a few other films up my sleeve for next year.”

QT: Well, we look forward to seeing if next years line up can match up to this years stellar selection! Thank you Jamie!

What do you think of the line-up? What would be on your terribly good film line up? Share and leave your feedback in the comment box!
