H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon

Following up on something I’ve mentioned before, which is the upcoming H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon event coming up here in Portland, October 1, 2 and 3rd. The promotional poster was just released.


Lena and I will be attending all three days of the festival, and I’m looking forward to checking out various bits of Lovecraft film, attending some readings and having a chance to meet a lot of kooky Lovecraft-loving filmmakers, writers, artists and editors.

The bad news is, they’ve announced this will be the festival’s last year in Portland, so if you live near enough to attend and you’ve been thinking “I’ve been meaning to check that out one of these years,” you’d better make it this year!

Look at your God. Now Look at me.

At the beginning of October, I’ll be attending the HP Lovecraft Film festival here in Portland. It’s a three day event, not just a film festival but a gathering of filmmakers, authors, editors and publishers involved to at least some degree in Lovecraft-influenced films or literature. My wife Lena — who shares a birthday with old Howard Philips — will be going too, and it looks like it should be a lot of fun. If you’re near enough Portland to be interested in attending, the festival web site is here. Oh, it’s October 1-3.

Saw this today, (via wil wheaton dot net), and it’s gettin’ me in the mood.
