The way to reference the default controller and the default action on that controller has changed. Essentially the defaultController in Yii might not be a controller, so it is now referred to as a route (i.e. defaultRoute) and the default Action on a controller in Yii2 is the name of the action rather than the Action object.
The Yii Framework has had a new major release and while the API documentation for the new version 2 is a lot better, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to find out what the new way of doing something is. I'm setting this article up as blogglue in order to join all these helper articles together.
When people ask "What kind of films do they play at a FrightFest?" I usually have to say something along the lines of "Well it's a mixture of Found Footage, Zombie, Horror, Apocalyptic, some Science Fiction and anything containing ultra violence". There is usually one documentary about something horror related and occasionally the festival shows a TV series if it falls within the weird and unusual. The films are usually in English although good films can come from anywhere and so it tends to be a bit random as to how many are foreign language films.
The Glasgow Fright Fest (FrightFest) doesn't seem to keep an archive of what was played at previous Fright Festivals so I've created this page to glue together all the listings from previous years into one handy page. So if you want to know what kind of films they play then each of the following pages contains the films that were played with links to IMDB which will probably have a trailer.
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2016 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2015 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2014 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2013 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2012 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2011 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2010 Programme
- Glasgow Fright Fest 2009 Programme
Just a reminder for me! Use this to help calculate the timings:
FrightFest descriptions of the films can be found here but they are all on one page so it is impossible to link to each film individually. And of course next year the link for this year's films will be gone :(

(*) Times are not listed so I guessed!
(**) Time can not be right, but is as listed. They must have the time of the previous film wrong.
I'm adding the listing here for completeness and partly because the Fright Festival doesn't list them any more.
