About the Festival

The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival ® promotes the works of H.P. Lovecraft, literary horror, and weird tales through the cinematic adaptations by professional and amateur filmmakers. The festival was founded in 1995 by Andrew Migliore in the hope that H.P. Lovecraft would be rightly recognized as a master of gothic horror and his work more faithfully adapted to film and television.

Take a Trip to R'lyeh and get exclusive rewards, ticket packages, and special festival experiences through the Portland 2015 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival's Kickstarter. Don't miss the Speakeasy VIP packages, ONLY available through the campaign.

Even if you can't come to the festival in person, you can immerse yourself in the expedition with our exclusive rewards! Limited edition lapel pins, t-shirts, pint glasses, shot glasses, a R'lyeh Expedition Kit, a sculptured Artifact set, limited edition woodcut print, and more!

Stretch goals include a Best of the 2015 HPLFF DVD, upgrades to rewards, and special guests.
