Thanks to everyone who turned up for our first mixer of 2014. Good food, great company and lots of productive festival work done too.
Thanks to the HHF team of (from l to r) Ray Chavez Jr., Donald F. Glut, David Del Valle, Phil Condit, Miles Flanagan, Matthew McLinn, Hsin Ou-Yang, Shaun Piccinino, Michael O’Donnell, Darren Shaw and Joe Stewart (behind the camera).
We’re very excited to announce we’re holding HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2014 in the very heart of Hollywood, CA. at the fantastic NEW BEVERLY CINEMA (7165 Beverly Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90036).
The NEW BEVERLY CINEMA, home of indie and grindhouse screenings since the 1950’s, and now owed by QUENTIN TARANTINO, is simply the perfect venue for our inaugural weekend event. A great place to screen, be seen and market your dream.
During the festival we hope to guide you through the complex process of getting your film seen by the right people, and attract the right distributor and ultimately develop a long lasting career. We can’t promise you’ll sell your film, but we can promise you’ll know more after the event and feel more confident in how best to sell your film and how to go about doing just that.
In attendance will not only be distributors, producers, PR consultants and managers, actors & journalists but also film-makers like yourself, who have made low budget films, screened them on the festival circuit and actually found distribution that not only works for them but actually pays!
So enter your film, short or script and we look forward to seeing you in 2014.
Actor, director, writer and stunt co-ordinator SHAUN PICCININO is set to attend this year’s HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST. SHAUN, whose recent Award winning feature “The Lackey” is set for release in September 2013, will discuss how he finally brought his script to the big screen and the trials and tribulations of finding and securing distribution in today’s market.
Here’s singers TL FORSBER’S wonderful new music video inspired by the reign of terror of Elizabeth Bathory, the “Blood Countess.” “LIQUID LOVE” is from the busy Director/Producer team (and our good friends and festival panelists) JOHN V. KNOWLES & LOTTI PHARRISS KNOWLES of WEIRDSMOBILE PRODUCTIONS. Looking forward to seeing their debut horror feature CHASTITY BITES – which is currently in post production. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more about that when they attend the festival later in the year.
We’re pleased to announce that MILES FLANAGAN, Director (& Founder) of the outrageous and uniquely entertaining BOOBS & BLOOD FILM FESTIVAL will be attending this year’s festival. Promoting industry mixer events as well as film festivals since 2010, FLANAGAN certainly knows a thing or two about old-school ballyhoo and publicity – bringing burlesque humor, and Hollywood glitz & glamor to every occasion. The beautiful, blood spattered BOOBS & BLOOD Awards (actress & Award winner REIKO YAMAGUCHI seen holding it) were personally designed by BOOTY BABE artist SPENCER DAVIS. Award honorees also include ROGER CORMAN, YUTAKA IKEJIMA & QUENTIN TARANTINO. FLANAGAN will certainly have some great insight into on how best to sell and promote your work and how to make the most from the festival circuit.
Those two crazy mother’s of cinematic mayhem, JOSEPH GUZMAN & ROBERT HAYES – the Producer/Director/Writer team responsible for the perverse classics, RUN, BITCH RUN, the beautifully titled NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS and the soon to be released BACK ALLEY BUTCHER – will be at this year’s HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST. We look forward to hearing from them at one of the many industry panels scheduled during the event.
