If you're a fan of things squamous and rugose, you've probably heard of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. If you haven't heard of it, it tickles me down to my toes to be the person to tell you about it.
Now going on it's 22nd year, the festival is a celebration of horror and weirdness in film, writing, and other art forms that takes place at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon, bringing fans together for a weekend that has been nothing but memorable every time I've gone in the past.
The festival's Kickstarter is well underway, and has a few days left before it's over. If you were planning on going, I strongly recommend contributing to it. It gets you your tickets to the festival, plus a hefty amount of schwag depending on how much you contribute. The stretch goal goodies have been nothing short of amazing in past years, so your eyes are sure to dance with delight. If you can't make it but still want to support the festival and get the goodies(of course you do), check out the "There in Spirit" tiers explained in the Kickstarter.
I encourage you to take part in the Kickstarter if you're going or just want neat stuff. Supporting the Kickstarter helps front end the finances to put the festival on, and every little bit helps because theatres ain't cheap.
