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.
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!

Also, Karen Lam’s Doll Parts will be playing at the San Diego Comic Con the following week!! And Curio Media co-founder Ada’Pia d’Errico will be moderating a panel at San Diego Comic Con featuring her sister, artist Camilla d’Errico, about Censorship and Women.

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!

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)
If you live in or near Philadelphia, we have an awesome event to tell you about called the MAUSOLEUM ART SHOW OF HORRORS which will play host to the North American Tour of Terror at the PhilaMOCA on June 15. Karen Lam’s Doll Parts is part of that tour.
From the event’s Facebook page (where you should go for more information):
“On Friday, June 15, PhilaMOCA will host The Mausoleum Art Show of Horrors (curated by Jenny Dreadful) as a lead-in to the following day’s Mausoleum Horror Convention. But the evening isn’t completely dedicated to masterpieces of the macabre as we’ll also be hosting the North American Tour of Terror, a program of current short horror films curated by local filmmaker Matt Garrett (BEATING HEARTS), followed by local horror maestro Isaac Williams’ feature documentary MAYBE WE CAN GO TO HOLLYWOOD starring the late Philly punk legend Mikey Wild.”
