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.
MrDisgusting at Bloody Disgusting has posted details about a contest open to California residents interested in attending the Viscera Film Festival on July 7! Check out the page for more information!
If you were already planning on going, or if you are the lucky one who wins those tickets, don’t forget to RSVP to the afterparty at Hotel Roosevelt and to RSVP for the Post-Apocalyptic Brunch the next day!
Over on their fantastic website, the Viscera Film Festival have announced a few of this year’s special guests, including a special honour they’re handing out! Check it out:
