Scholarly or Entertaining Presentation Application

The 2022 HPLFF will take place October 7-9, 2022. This will very likely be a hybrid event, with some events taking place in person at the Hollywood Theatre, and some events taking place during our streaming edition on Eventive.

If you would like to give a Scholarly Talk, or Visual/Entertaining presentation, please submit this application form by August 1, 2022. We are looking for an entertaining and educational presentation on subjects that our audience will appreciate learning more about. In the past we have had presentations on the Art of Clark Ashton Smith, Trips to Lovecraftian Locales, Antarctic Travels, Classic Weird Movie Posters, and more.

This is how we will be contacting you
If applicable.
Choose the category that best fits your presentation.
How would this be listed in a program? It should be enticing as well as give the reader an idea of what they'll be experiencing. For example, "Movie Posters" doesn't tell us much, but "The Weird Movie Posters of the 1950s" gives us a good idea of what we'll be seeing.
3-5 sentences describing your presentation or performance. This is what attendees will see in the program, so give them a reason to skip a film and come see your awesome presentation!
Let us know A/V components are needed. Enter N/A if none.
Please check the box next to all the times you are available during the festival.
If applicable, please list the names of the people (other than yourself) who will be involved in your presentation. If you're not sure exactly who will be available, put your best guess and a total number of people.
Please provide a short 100 word bio, written in 3rd person. This should contain the most relevant information about your professional career.
Please attach a photo that can be used with your biography. Photos must be at least 300x450 pixels (portrait orientation) in .gif, .jpg, or .png format. If you have any problems uploading a file, you can email it to us later.
Files must be less than 2 MB.
Allowed file types: gif jpg jpeg png.
Being accepted as a guest at our festival effectively makes you a representative of the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival community. We may not always see eye to eye with everyone in it, but we advocate respectful discourse. Time and space is precious at the festival, so those we select will be paragons of the community who are interested in bringing it together, not sowers of discord. Attacking others, name calling, belittling, taking part in flame wars (even if you believe you're on the correct side), and other such childish behavior on social media is not how we want to represent ourselves to the world. Potential participants will share these values and be vetted in this regard. All participants and attendees are also subject to our Code of Conduct (you can read the entire thing here: )
Is there anything else we need to know about your presentation? Equipment or space needs?
