H. P. LOVECRAFT FILM FESTIVAL® ANNOUNCES
SAN PEDRO EVENT CLOSURE
PORTLAND, OR October 7, 2016
After seven festivals since 2010, the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® (HPLFF®) will not be returning to the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, California. The epic final San Pedro event transpired from April 29 to May 1, 2016 over the auspicious Walpurgisnacht weekend, and featured author Joe Pulver, Sr. and a live cast accompaniment to the classic 1970 B-movie The Dunwich Horror.
As usual, the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival® features the best in independent Cosmic Horror, Weird Tales, and the Uncanny. Most of the films featured at the festival can't yet be seen outside of a film festival, and many this year are World, US, or Regional Premieres!
