The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary October 2-4th! This year’s film offerings include over 50 short films, six features, and hours of panel discussions, author readings, live events, and special guests.

Guest of Honor Charles Stross joins us all the way from Edinburgh! He will deliver a keynote speech on Saturday and receive the Howie Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Lovecraftian horror genre. Stross is the Hugo Award-winning author of the Laundry Files series, Merchant Princes series, and many more.

Special Guest Jeffrey Combs will be joining us for the entire weekend! Combs has made numerous film and television appearances, but among Lovecraft fans, he is best known for his dry delivery and perfect comedic timing, bringing to life the beloved Herbert West in Stuart Gordon's horror classic film RE-ANIMATOR. He was a guest at the very first H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, and continues to be one of our most frequently requested guests, so we're extremely excited to announce that he'll be participating in this year's festival! Programming will include dramatic readings and Q&As.

Programming Highlights:
        • Opening night: a Gala night at the cinema, 1920s style! with contortion, burlesque, and vaudeville, culminating in the 10th Anniversary    screening of The Call of Cthulhu.
        • Guest of Honor Charles Stross will receive the Howie Award.
        • Special Guest Jeffrey Combs joins us for readings and Q&A throughout the weekend.
        • “Ask Lovecraft” Live! with Leeman Kessler.
