Brno, Sep 25 (BD) – This weekend, the Serial Killer international festival of TV and web series comes to Brno for the third year. The Serial Killer Festival will be screening the first two episodes of each of the series from their selection over three days at the Goose on a String Theatre (Divadlo Husa na Provázku).
The selection of series has been gathered together from countries all across Europe, including Norway, Great Britain, Finland, Sweden, Romania, Russia, Estonia, Iceland, Russia, Serbia and the Czech Republic. (You can read more details about the event in our previous article: “Dare To Be Captivated by the Serial Killer Festival”).
Series from Great Britain
Current trends from Great Britain are presented in this section. Established female comedians have stepped up to write comedy dramas of their own, such as Daisy Haggard as Miranda in “Back to Life” and Roisin Conaty as Marcella in “GameFace”. Also from Great Britain, the true-crime series “The Salisbury Poisonings” and “White House Farm” reconstruct two real-crime stories from British history.
Series from the International Panorama
In previous years, dark detective stories have been popular, but now the trend in Europe brings new stories in the form of political dramas and thrillers. These series are often set in Scandinavia, such as the Finnish drama “Peacemaker”. However, true crime is still in demand, and the festival will feature several series which highlight the complex nature of social or psychological dramas by retelling true crime events.
