Presentation by director Simon Sheridan. 70 mins.
During the 1970s British filmmakers offered dwindling cinema audiences something they couldn’t see on television – X-rated sex comedies. Saucy romps like CONFESSIONS OF A WINDOW CLEANER, ADVENTURES OF A TAXI DRIVER and COME PLAY WITH ME, smashed box office records. Now the fascinating, and often surprising, true story behind this forgotten era of British moviemaking is revealed in all its colourful glory in Simon Sheridan’s landmark new documentary. Starring Robin Askwith, Diane Keen, Linda Hayden, Oliver Tobias, Sue Longhurst and many more, scenes from KEEPING THE BRITISH END UP! preview exclusively at FrightFest prior to its West End premiere.
