It boggles the mind, as I feel that I’m still recovering from the madness that was last October, but that creepy fun-filled month will be upon us once again in a short seven and a half months, which in this case means that competition is now open for all new features and short films for Screamfest LA 2010.
Shepherded by founder Rachel Belofsky and running for ten days (dates TBA) at the Hollywood & Highland complex in the heart of Hollywood, CA, the horror film festival in the past has acted as a springboard for such films as Oren Peli’s hit Paranormal Activity, Tom Six’s much-buzzed about The Human Centipede, and Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s French shocker Inside. For information on the submission process (final submissions must be post-marked for August 15), visit Screamfest LA.
And in a continuation of its support of horror filmmakers, Screamfest LA’s throwing a mixer this Thursday, February 11, in Hollywood, CA, at Kung Pao Kitty (6445 Hollywood Blvd. at Wilcox) starting at 7:30 pm until close. Happy hour prices will be in effect until 9:30 pm with the Kitty staff serving up some special horrific concoctions specific to the event (among them 4 dollar Brain Hemorrhages, Blood Clots, and Bloody Marys) and collecting donated apparel for victims of the Haiti quake.
Mixer details can be found here, and there’s no cover so come down and network with fellow genre filmmakers and horror fans. I’ll see you there!
