The Hollywood Film Festival will be returning to the ArcLight Cinemas on October 22. Unlike many major mainstream festivals, this one shows a certain respect for fantasy, horror and science fiction. The festival has announced its Call for Entries for these often neglected genres:
- "Film festivals have always been very supportive of independents. Unfortunately, indie sci-fi, fantasy and horror genres often get left out of typical festival programs. How will we discover the next Peter Jackson if festivals do not support young filmmakers who create fantastic visions? I'm ecstatic to team up again with the Hollywood Film Festival to showcase cutting-edge new work from indie genre filmmakers. I'm proud that Film Threat's editor-in-chief Mark Bell as well as the Film Threat staff, will be involved in the selection process with the goal to feature the best of the next generation of filmmakers," said Film Threat founder Chris Gore.
