The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival ’s infamous shorts blocks are back in fine form and streaming audiences can enjoy the 9+ hours of short films that played theatrically last weekend at the historic Hollywood Theatre, as well as an additional mega-block of shorts streaming online only. This year’s short films are an impressive lineup from all over the world including Belarus, Australia, Ukraine, Portugal, Italy, Mexico, Austria, United Kingdom, Canada, and the US.

Feature films include the 10th Anniversary screening of The Whisperer in Darkness by the H. P.

Single Day and Full Festival Streaming passes are available now through its Eventive portal (https://hplfilmfestival.eventive.org/), and include access to filmmaker Q&As, panel discussions, and author readings.

The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival was founded in 1995 by Andrew Migliore to promote the work of Lovecraft-inspired independent filmmakers from around the world. Since 2011, current directors Gwen and Brian Callahan have grown the festival to a three-day extravaganza of film, art, author readings, scholarly presentations, live performances, tabletop gaming demos, and are working hard to bring a taste of all these experiences to the streaming festival.
