The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon (official web site) has been a Portland institution for almost two decades. So much so, that in addition to the Portland festival, there is now also a Los Angeles area edition. So much more than a film festival, these events showcase readings by current Cthulhu Mythos authors, panel discussions about comics, music, filmmaking, and more, live performances by Lovecraftian bands, artist competitions, and more, in addition to the latest independent feature films and shorts, as well as retrospective showings from Lovecraftian cinema through the ages. This year's May event in Portland featured guests Robert M. Price, Wilum H. Pugmire, Sean Branney and Andrew Leman (creators of The Whisperer in Darkness and The Call of Cthulhu movies), Edward Morris, Thomas Phinney (creator of the fonts used in Masks of Nyarlathotep), artists Mike Dubisch (Black Velvet Necronomicon), Nick Gucker, and Lee Moyer. Currently, the Portland festival takes place in the spring and the Los Angeles festival takes place in the fall. Check the official H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon Web site for details on upcoming events! Whether or not you've been to the festival, this is the official outlet for all HPL Film Festival & CthulhuCon merchandise. Please note that many of these items are of a limited nature, so not all sizes/varieties may be available, and often once they're gone, they're gone.
