REDCON-1 was recently won Best Thriller at the National Film Awards 2019.
Intense Distribution and 101 Films have announced a partnership with Forces Cinemas, to provide a series of free screenings of REDCON-1 to the British Armed Forces around the world.
Like the relentless zombies in the film, REDCON-1 just won’t quit. Following a highly successful theatrical release of the action-packed horror thriller at Vue Cinemas last year, REDCON-1, about eight soldiers on a suicide mission after Britain is brought to its knees by a zombie outbreak, made its home entertainment debut last month and blasted into the Official Top 20 on its first week of release.
It was marked with the kind of fanfare usually reserved for Hollywood franchises - with tanks and zombies descending on shopping centres around the UK, a cast & crew signing tour with HMV, fans of the film turning up sporting REDCON-1 tattoos, and the director giving a talk at the prestigious British Film Institute.
REDCON-1 Free Armed Forces Screenings.
REDCON-1 features over 1,500 extras, some of whom were war veterans who had served in the armed forces. To show their gratitude to the military personnel who helped out with the film, and loaned the production some of the incredible hardware, including tanks and helicopters, the filmmakers are teaming up with Forces Cinemas for special screenings at various Army and RAF military bases in the UK and overseas.

Jennifer Holdford, Cinema Operations Manager for Forces Cinemas commented:
“We love being able to support independent filmmakers in particular when there is a military link and we are delighted to be able to bring this movie to our audiences entirely free of charge.”
