With the Burbank International Film Festival currently in full swing (it’s running through Sunday, September 18th), filmmaker/genre personality Jeff Rector tipped us off to the Sci-fi & Horror Red Carpet Party he’s hosting in conjunction with the fest tomorrow night, Saturday, September 17th. Read on for information on the genre-studded event honoring the legendary Roger Corman, including how to purchase tickets.
