Viscera Film Festival
One of the most influential film fests for the promotion of female filmmakers, the Viscera Film Festival, is now calling for entries, and to help promote the event, they've brought in one of our favorite horror photogs, Joshua Hoffine.
San Diego's Horrible Imaginings is teaming up with the Viscera Film Festival to celebrate Women in Horror Recognition Month with a two-night event that starts off with a theatrical presentation of monologues and continues with an international horror shorts program that includes our own Heather Wixson's "Paper Rock, Scissors".
The event has come and gone, but the memories will remain. Sunday, July 17th, marked the date of the 2011 Viscera Women’s Film Festival. The celebration of female-made horror films was hosted by Founder/Director of Operations Shannon Lark and Director of Programming Heidi Honeycutt in the beautiful Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles, and along with a recap we have the winners to share.
The Kick-Off 2011 Event of the Viscera Film Festival will take place on Sunday, July 17th, at the Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles, Califonia, wherein Viscera pulls out all the stops with a carefully chosen selection of films by women from all over the world.
It isn't often that you find a horror film festival focused on the female of the species, but that's exactly what the Viscera Film Festival does, and the fourth annual event will be taking place in Los Angeles this coming July 17th, 2011. And if you happen to be a female filmmaker, submissions are open now through February 28th.
