Philadelphia, February 22, 2014:  Philly Loves Women In Horror

We are happy to announce the one of a kind, second annual Philadelphia Women in Horror Month event, Philly Loves Women In Horror scheduled to take place at the Rotunda in West Philadelphia on Saturday, February 22, 2014 beginning at 3:00PM. Admission is free!

But these aren't your mainstream horror films. Women filmmakers who specialize in the horror genre have a formidable capacity for innovation and dispelling popular, dismissive opinions that overwhelm the genre. They create intense, dark narratives that provide plenty of gore as well as plenty of insight about men and women in our society.

Philly Loves Women in Horror aims to showcase films by women horror directors, enrich the Philadelphia artistic community, and  make charitable donations to Lil Filmmakers, a local non-profit organization that gives our youth the opportunity to learn all aspects of filmmaking under the guidance of founder and Temple University film school graduate Janine Spruill. 

A Q&A panel has been added that includes the founder of Women in Horror Month, Hannah Neurotica along with local and regional horror bloggers, artists, and filmmakers. The discussion will cover women in horror in front and behind the camera and how these women are radically changing the film and horror industry landscape.

The wide range of diversity with this coming year's award winning film selections span North America with a pit stop in Tasmania.
