The organizers of the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, OR are making a pilgrimage to the hometown of Weird tale author H. P. Lovecraft, to show an amazing selection of independent short films, from around the world, to the attendees of NecronomiCon Providence 2017. Brian and Gwen Callahan will be showing over 3 hours of shorts, split into two blocks shown several times over the weekend, from Lovecraftian filmmakers in Finland, Peru, UK, Germany, Czech, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, as well as the US and Canada!

It all happens August 17-20th at AS220's Black Box Theater, at 95 Empire St. in Providence, RI! Screenings take place every day, but click here for films synopses and the film schedule.

What is NecronomiCon? Besides being the fabled and cursed tome featured in several H. P. Lovecraft stories, it is also now one of the largest gatherings of Lovecraft fans, scholars, authors, artists, filmmakers, and musicians, held every other year in Providence, Rhode Island, and this year August 17-20th, 2017. If you're a Lovecraft enthusiast on the East Coast of the US (or can get there!), click here for more information and to buy single day tickets or passes that get you access to all four days of macabre programming.
