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!
It’s been invited to play the Atlanta Horror Film Festival September 28-30, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Razor Reel Fantastic Film Festival October 25-November 3…in Bruges. (*giggles*—LB)
Of course you do!! And you’ll have plenty of chances as it’s hitting the festival circuit, starting with the Dragon*Con Independent Film Festival which takes place during Atlanta, Georgia’s annual Dragon*Con event.
Can’t make it to Georgia? The Stolen will also be playing at the inaugural Etheria Film Festival in Somerville, Massachusetts, on September 15. Etheria is a new branch of the Viscera Organization that focuses on sci-fi and fantasy films made by women.
Live in Canada? Never fear! The Stolen is making its Canadian premiere at the Montreal ComicCon HorrorFest!
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.
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:
Mary Lambert (director, “Pet Sematary”) is the Viscera 2012 Special Guest Speaker and will be honored with the first ever Inspiration Award onstage.
Gale Anne Hurd (producer,“The Walking Dead”, “Terminator”), Elizabeth Stanley (producer, “Trailers from Hell”), Lexi Alexander (“Lifted”, ”Punisher: War Zone”), Susanna Lo, (Manson Girls), Michael Berryman (“The Hills have Eyes”).
I hope y’all have been paying attention to the Viscera Facebook event page or website, but if you haven’t: Tickets are now available for the Viscera Film Festival’s fabulous July 7th 2012 kick-off event and red carpet!
Admission is $11 and you get to see ALL of the films, food, free drinks (including alcohol), and you get to check out the red carpet and awards ceremonies as well as the after party at the Hotel Roosevelt!
A few scant details have been released about the Viscera Film Festival’s July 7 Red Carpet event that kicks off the 2012-2013 tour. You should keep an eye on their website for more information. If you live in L.A., near L.A., or happen to be going to L.A. at that time, you should go to the event which is being held at the world famous, historic Egyptian Theatre! It boasts an impressive line-up of international short horror films as well as some of the most spectacular filmmakers around!

The redesigned website for the official Women in Horror Recognition Month website has been revealed!
