If you’re visiting Viscera on July 7, don’t miss out on what will be the most bad-ass brunch to have ever hit the city of dreams: Viscera Film Festival’s Post Apocalyptic Brunch at Wirtshaus, Sunday, July 8, at 11:30 AM!
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! They’re working on the archive now, but the rest of the site, including the mission and history of the effort, are up and running. Women in Horror Recognition Month is a service of the Viscera Organization (the group behind the Viscera Film Festival.)
Come enjoy a beer and authentic German food on Thursday, May 24, 2012. Wirtshaus is generously donating 20% of all food and drink sales that day to the Viscera Organization for anyone that tells them “I Love Viscera!” This is an all day event so you can stop in for lunch, have an afternoon pint or challenge Viscera Board of Directors member Stacy Pippi Hammon to a boot drinking competition in the evening. How easy is that? Stacy will also have some goodies to give away between 8PM and 10PM for those that join for the evening fun.
If you can’t make it, but want to help an absolutely kick-butt 501(c)3 film festival, Viscera has a PayPal!
To learn more about the film and its director, Danielle Harris (directing her first feature after having been in countless genre films), check out Heidi Honeycutt’s piece in this month’s Fangoria! (Issue #314 has Debbie Rochon on the cover, the Fango website says #313 is on shelves, but I saw 314 at a brick and mortar store last week. — LB)

As we mentioned before, the Viscera Film Festival and founder Shannon Lark are in Ireland at the University College of Dublin today and tomorrow for a symposium about Gender, Sexuality, and Horror hosted by Dr. Emma Radley. If you missed today, check with Dr. Radley to see if there’s room in tomorrow’s presentation!
And, if you’re free on the night of May 20, head over to the Sugar Club for the afterparty (more specific details, such as cover price, on the graphic below. :D)
Today’s the day for you Toronto horror fans to catch Karen Lam’s Stained (which got a nice mention in this week’s This Week in Rep Cinema feature on BlogTO) and a Viscera Film Festival screening! It’s $10 just to see Stained at 6pm, but if you pay $5 more you can stay and see the Viscera films (including Karen Lam’s Doll Parts!) And don’t forget about the Q&A with Karen, Jovanka Vuckovic, Dara Jade Moats, and Chris Alexander hosted by Kelly Michael Stewart and Lianne Spiderbaby.
Live in Ireland and not Toronto? Think it’s weird that I’m being so specific? Don’t! Viscera founder Shannon Lark will be at a two-day symposium on Gender, Sexuality, and Horror at the University College of Dublin which starts May 17. That one is a free screening, but you have to contact Emma Hadley to reserve your place!
