So this is just a quick update, but it’s been one year since Erich Zann premiered at Haverford in Stokes Auditorium, but the project just won’t stay dead!
On April 3rd, the film screened at Australia’s “A Night of Horror” film festival, alongside several other adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft’s work. A link to the festival’s site can be found here: www.anightofhorror.com/
And just yesterday, I got confirmation that the movie will be screening at the Pittsburgh Horror Film Festival sometime between June 3rd and June 5th (they haven’t released the final listing). That festival’s site can be found here: www.pittsburghhorrorfilms.com/
This is awesome. Who would have thought that a short film made by a group of people with little-to-no filmmaking experience would be seen by filmgoers on the other side of the planet? I am still in awe of the amount and quality of the work put in by that cast and crew, and I’m so pleased that people in different parts of the world are going to be able to see it!
Our next goal? The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. If our film makes it to the final round, it will be watched and judged by Guillermo Del Toro, the man behind Pan’s Labyrinth and the Hellboy movies! You can find the website for this festival here: www.hplfilmfestival.com/
