Did you miss out on your chance to get these posters at the festival? It includes both the "Starship R'lyeh" teaser poster that was used to promote the film festival before guests and films were announced, as well as the final "Lovecraftian Gothic" poster, an homage to Grant Wood's "American Gothic", which shows H.P. Lovecraft as a farmer, pitchfork in his hand, next to his lovely Mi-Go partner (from "The Whisperer in Darkness"), and a "colourful" meteorite (from "The Colour Out of Space") streaking in from outer space. Artwork by Brian Callahan. Placed side-by-side, these two 11" x 17" posters fit together to form a continuous image.
The 2011 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, OR (September 30 and October 1, 2011) brought to the screen notable films like the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's "The Whisperer in Darkness" and Huan Vu's "Die Farbe" (The Colour Out of Space), as well as some truly great short films. All in all, it was a blast, and featured several guests including filmmakers Huan Vu, Jan Roth, Sean Branney, Thomas Nicol, Rick Tillman, and Syl Disjonk, as well as author Jenna Pitman. The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival takes place annually, the first weekend of October in Portland, OR.
