Inside No. 9 invites viewers into six very different No. 9s, where the ordinary and mundane rub shoulders with the extraordinary and macabre.

The BBC will be screening season 3, of which will no doubt become cult classic TV, from September 2016. The STARBURST Film Festival has secured a totally exclusive screening an episode from season 3 prior to broadcasting. These screening/s will be supported by a discussion and Q&A sessions about the show and exciting guests from the productions.
