New film about the infamous UFO mystery in Rendlesham Forest

Since the night of 26th December 1980 Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk is synonymous with strange lights in the sky and unexplained alien activity.

Numerous USAF personnel claim to have seen extra terrestrial aircraft and mysterious lights at East Gate in the forest, close to the USAF bases Woodbridge and Bentwaters.

And tonight a film, based on the events of three days in December, premieres at the Colchester Film Festival. Written and directed by Daniel Simpson (Spiderhole, H) it tells the story of three UFO investigators plunging deep into Rendlesham Forest over three days.

Daniel spent nearly four years filming on handheld cameras and created the special effects himself. He says the experience of talking to eye witnesses from the events of 1980 has made him change his opinion.

"I've looked into it endlessly and I've looked into the faces and eyes of people telling the story and i just have to believe them, that's what you have to go on. I believe something happened that we will never know what it was, but I believe people do know"

– Daniel Simpson, Director

The film, entitled 'Rendlesham UFO Incident', will be on general release in the UK in February 2015. It'll be released in America and Japan later in 2014 under the title 'Hangar 10'
