Guillermo del Toro Confirms Participation in H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival
Filmaker Guillermo del Toro, known for such fan favorite films as Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, has confirmed that he will participate in HPLFF-LA 2011. Del Toro, a Lovecraft fan himself, will be the final judge for selecting the winner of the Festival’s short film contest.
In addition to its short film contest, the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival also gives the Howie Award, the Brown Jenkin Award, and the Deep One Award to filmakers and other artists for their contributions. For instance, comic artist and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola received a Howie Award in 2008.
The 2011 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival will be held September 16 and 17 at the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro, California.
Later this year, in May, a second Festival will be held at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon.
