Spyscape Museum to Host TV and Film Festival Dedicated to Secrets

“Secrets are powerful and ancient narrative devices that tap deep into our psyche. They power some of the most successful franchises… and they’re core to the most engaging stories across news and current affairs, history and politics. Spyflix will help storytellers bring the power of secrets into sharper focus, stimulating greater discovery, and critical discourse around the genre.”

Pssst! Know any filmmakers who want to enter a new festival dedicated to secrets?

Secrets are powerful narrative devices that tap deep into our psyche - inside each secret lies a who, what, how and why. Secrets power major franchises, from James Bond and Batman, to Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter, and they’re central to the most engaging factual stories from news and current affairs to history and politics.

The SPYFLIX festival will focus on secrets in many forms: from classic espionage, hacking adventures and thrillers, to documentaries, true crime and detective stories.

So if you know anyone that wants to reach a huge audience obsessed with secrets, SPYFLIX is their chance! In addition to the international exposure, selected works will also be eligible for awards and cash prizes in three categories: features, shorts, and series.

Don’t keep this a secret, share it with friends! Find out more: https://www.spyflix.com/

RIP John Le Carre: one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. In the words of his agent, Jonny Geller: “an undisputed giant of English literature. He defined the cold war era and fearlessly spoke truth to power in the decades that followed … I have lost a mentor, an inspiration and most importantly, a friend. We will not see his like again.”

On a Friday night in December 1926, mystery writer Agatha Christie vanished from her home. As the news of her disappearance spread, police frantically tried to piece together the few clues she’d left behind. Almost two weeks after she went missing, the writer was found at a spa in Yorkshire with reportedly no recollection of what happened.

Loved the museum, but don’t buy the overpriced fidgipen. It broke in 6 days and I didn’t even use it that much. The spin top came off twice too if you spin it too much. Was so excited for it too. 😪
Thanks to Sean who works in the NYC location! This 007 exhibit was awesome! #spycatcherdottie
