The Iron Maiden Film ‘Flight 666’ Wins Major Award ATSXSW Festival

Film Opens in Cinemas Worldwide April 21St

The Iron Maiden film ‘FLIGHT 666’ has won the "24 BEATS PER SECOND" award for best music documentary at the prestigious SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

‘Flight 666’ was shot as the band embarked on the first leg of their momentous SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR in February and March of 2008, considered to be the most ambitious and adventurous tour in rock history. The film is being distributed by Arts Alliance Media, in association with Iron Maiden, EMI Records and Universal (in the USA), into cinemas worldwide on April 21st.

‘Flight 666’ directors Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen of Banger Productions said, "We are of course very pleased. The audience was electric in Texas. We made this film to be enjoyed by all rock fans, not just Maiden fans, and on the big screen. And with the 2K digital cinema projection and 5.1 surround sound in the historic Paramount theatre it really felt we had taken the whole audience on the tour. After spending over a year editing down almost 500 hours of footage it was really gratifying to get this kind of recognition.”

Manager Rod Smallwood adds; "All the band are delighted for Scot and Sam and the Banger team. This is a tremendous recognition of the fantastic job they have done. They have made a film not just for our many fans but also for anyone with an interest in rock music and the realities of world touring. And, of course, aircraft!!"

Shot in High Definition, the movie will be released in digital cinemas around the world, with superb 5.1 surround sound - mixed by the band’s producer Kevin 'Caveman' Shirley - the ultimate Maiden assault on the senses. Details of cinemas worldwide announced to date and links to book tickets can be seen at More venues will be announced in additional territories nearer the release date. Don't miss out on this one off experience.

'Flight 666' is a Banger Films, Phantom Music Management and EMI Music production in association with Arts Alliance Media.
