This year's festival is going to look a little different! We are having an in-person event October 1-3rd, and a streaming event the following weekend with largely the same film programming. All panel discussions will take place during the streaming event, October 8-10th.
Do you have a topic or subject of debate that you would like to discuss? Something fun, quirky, or educational that you think attendees of the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon would love to hear about? Assemble your experts and pitch a panel to us! All pitches must be submitted by September 27th. You will hear back on the status of your application by the 29th.
NOTE: Avoid generic topics or discussions that are too broad. We're looking for dynamic, exciting sounding topics that utilize your unique interests or specialties. You should plan on doing research and coming prepared to take part in an engaging discussion that delves deep into a specific, narrow, and interesting topic. Same old, same old topics that are too broad will likely be dismissed, so reach for greatness!
As the panel pitch-er, you will be responsible for finding your panelists, and you'll be the point person for communications with us. Panels can be pre-recorded, or done live via Zoom. Plan on 45 minutes for discussion and 15 minutes for audience questions if you're going to broadcast live.
