2014 HP Lovecraft Film Festival Kickstarter Wants You!
The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival-Los Angeles is in the wind-down phase of their kickstarter campaign. They're successfully funded and now working on meeting their stretch goals. They are returning for the fifth year at the exquisite art deco Warner Grand Theatre in historic San Pedro on September 26, 27, and 28, 2014. This year's theme is Shadow Over Innsmouth.
Among the activities they're planning is a rare screening of The Creature from the Black Lagoon and numerous shorts from emerging and established short film makers around the world. Special guests will include the authors John Shirley, Nancy Holder, Gary C. Myers, Leslie S. Klinger, Cody Goodfellow, Ross E. Lockhart, and the poets Michael Tice and Scott Virtes.
The first stretch goal has been met, raising funds to commission an artist to paint a mural commemorating the festival and its ties to San Pedro. Skinner's previous work can be found in Portland, Oregon, where they have a particular love for the Great Old Ones, clearly.
They have some amazing rewards for those who will be attending in person and those who must attend virtually. Be sure to check them out! The kickstarter campaign concludes at 9:40PM on Monday, August 25th. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/906612014/2014-los-angeles-hp-lovecraft-film-festival-and-ct
