I'm going to be a part of the 21st annual HP Lovecraft film festival in Portland, OR, next month, so here's a heads-up about the festival and about the crowdfunding campaign that makes it possible!
The HP Lovecraft Film Festival (Portland OR) is funded by a Kickstarter campaign each year. In recent years, the con com has created an awesome rewards package revolving around an adventure scenario with a brilliant narrative story line and tons of related swag. This year's scenario is "Shanghai Tunnels" a dark journey into the past of Portland's Chinatown.
There's less than a week until the end of the Kickstarter. The campaign is fully funded and the convention is going to happen on schedule. However, there's still time to sign on to get the great backer reward package -- teeshirts! amulets! cryptic inscriptions! -- and maybe open up some new swag for everyone.
If you've been meaning to attend this excellent west coast festival of horror and Lovecraftian film, or even if you just want the the awesome swag of the Kickstarter rewards, go check out the HPLFF's KS page now, before it's too late!
