20th Anniversary Festival Kickstarter Launched... and funded!
On Monday, July 6 2015, we launched the "Trip to R'lyeh" Kickstarter campaign for the 20th Anniversary H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, OR. Then, 37 hours later, it was funded. We are thrilled at the outpouring of support! This definitely helps us pay some of our most basic expenses, like theatre rental, but there's still a ways to go to make this the Best Festival Ever! Please share!
If you're coming to the festival, now is your chance to get Exclusive Ticket Packages that contain Miskatonic University Explorers Club T-shirts, lapel pins, and more (or, if you wanna go a little more EEEVIL, your package will include exclusive Cultist T-shirts and lapel pins). We're also offering special Speakeasy VIP Party tickets, where you can enjoy hors d'oeuvres, beverages, and mingle with some of our featured guests in a wonderful 1930s-style speakeasy.
Even if you aren't coming, there are tons of rewards that will take you to R'lyeh, including the Expedition Kit, featuring a 12x18 map of R'lyeh, compiled form aerial surveys of the island, a log book containing sketches from the island by some of our most artistic explorers, like Mike Dubisch, Paul Komoda, Heather Hudson, John Donald Carlucci, Nick gucker, and more, as well as diary entries from the team leader, equipment manifests, and more.
Whether you back the Kickstarter or not, please do one thing for us: share it with your friends through Facebook and Twitter (and anything else you've got going).
