3 days of Lovecraftian film and activities, including author readings, panels, and vendors.

For over 20 years, the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival® has been the vanguard of Weird independent cinema, adapted from or inspired by the works of the father of Cosmic Horror, H. P. Loveccraft. The festival was founded by Andrew Migliore in Portland, OR, where it has run continuously since, but it has spawned several horrible offspring in various cities over the years, primarily in San Pedro, CA, but with satellite events in numerous locations, including Seattle and Austin, as well as special screenings as part of the biennial NecronomiCon in Providence.

This will be the first standalone H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Providence, hosted by the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council (organizers of NecronomiCon PVD) and the masterminds of HPLFF-PDX.
