The 2017 Etheria Film Night has revealed the final lineup of short films that will be presented on Saturday, June 3rd, at 7:30 pm PT at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA. Following the screenings there will be Q&As with the directors in attendance.
Etheria programmer Heidi Honeycutt explains: “Every year there’s a definite trend in the submissions based on what’s happening in the mainstream world of genre TV and film. The year that ‘The Walking Dead’ came out on Netflix in Europe, Etheria received so many European zombie films; last year it was superhero action and martial arts, when ‘Jessica Jones’ and other Marvel shows were premiering. It depends on what’s popular at the moment. This year it’s body horror. So many women have submitted crazy-good horror films that screw with your perception of reality and your body. Tara Price’s Earworm, in our main lineup, is a great example of this trend. It’s awesome and gruesome, and we can’t wait for the audience to see it.”
Price adds, “Etheria’s reputation precedes itself with its solid showcase of films and classic Hollywood venue. I’m so proud they chose Earworm to be a part of this year’s line-up!”
