The new Viscera Film Festival trailer has been posted!
They’re looking for a few good volunteers to join their ranks. If you’re interested in helping an amazing non-profit dedicated to helping and encouraging women horror filmmakers, download the staff call PDF from the website, give it a read, and see if there’s anything that suits your fancy!
Our friends over at the Viscera Organization, a 501(c)3 non-profit based out of Los Angeles, California, are looking for volunteers to fill positions in both the beloved Viscera Film Festival and the fledgling Etheria Film Festival branches! Download the Staff Call PDF on the Viscera Film Festival front page to find out more!
Here are a few reviews of this year’s amazing Viscera Film Festival, which was held at the Egyptian in Los Angeles.
Announced at the Viscera event was a new service of the organization called MoHA, the Mistresses of Horror Alliance, which is headed up by French-Canadian filmmaker Maude Michaud. Allow me to quote myself (me being LB):
Where Viscera seeks to promote and encourage female filmmakers externally, MoHA seeks to connect those filmmakers with each other to encourage collaboration amongst our ranks. This is all a part of the message of Viscera, that we’re better working together like the organs of the human body (y’know…viscera.)
The website for MoHA is still being worked on, but if I’m remembering correctly, it should be up before the end of the year.
Don’t forget that THIS WEEKEND is the annual Viscera Film Festival bloody carpet kick-off for the 2012 tour! It takes place at the Egyptian in Los Angeles! The afterparty will be at the Hotel Roosevelt and there’s a brunch at Wirtshaus the next (early) afternoon!
