  • Hit our fundraising goal! Let's get our stretch goal to have legendary game creator Sandy Petersen join us!
  • The movie IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS will screen with producer Sandy King as guest! (wife of director John Carpenter)
  • HUGE ADDITIONS to the Daemon Sultan Azathoth reward levels: FOUR all-access VIP badges (and poster, and T-shirts), plus videos and the chance to join the ceremonial Cthulhu Prayer Breakfast on Sunday!
  • MOST (not all) REWARD LEVELS ARE THE ACTUAL TICKETS TO THE FESTIVAL.
  • IF YOU WANT MORE THAN ONE, SELECT THE REWARD LEVEL YOU WANT, BUT PAY DOUBLE (or triple, or quadruple) THE AMOUNT. We'll ask about additional names in the reward survey. If you have questions, feel free to message me. 

The HPLFF started almost 20 years ago in Portland, Oregon by Andrew Migliore. After years of attending and contributing, filmmaker Aaron Vanek went insane and spawned an HPLFF in his hometown of Los Angeles. This is a licensed franchise of the Portland fest, but each festival has its own distinct brand of madness. 

The first three LA festivals were successes but paid for out of pocket and just missed breaking even each time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide the same excitement and entertainment this year without your help. Our savings are drained so without YOU we'll be hard pressed to maintain and improve the quality this independently run horror and weird tale film festival has had in the past. 

Eaten Last - Thank you! Your contribution to the cause is greatly appreciated, so much we will petition the Great Old Ones to devour you last, like a digestif. We'll still mail you a program paper with your name in the obituary column in teeny tiny type. 

ALL DONORS WILL HAVE THEIR NAME IN OUR PROGRAM PAPER, BUT YOUR NAME WILL BE IN A BIGGER FONT SIZE BASED ON YOUR REWARD LEVEL

ALL DONORS ABOVE $10 WILL RECEIVE A PDF OF LOVECRAFT ART FROM RENOWNED ILLUSTRATORS LEE MOYER, PAUL CARRICK, MIKE DUBISCH, JASON THOMPSON AND MANY MORE!

Friday Fungi of Yuggoth and Saturday Shoggoth Rewards - Each of these reward levels brings you one ticket for the appropriate day. It will be mailed to you, so you don't have to wait at will call or the box office; you can go right to the entrance where an EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter-donor only poster will be handed to you. The PDF of HPL art will be emailed. 

The poster artwork is by Jason "Mockman" Thompson, our artist guest of honor. This 11" x 17" special will be printed on heavier paper than our regular official poster. There will only be as many made as we have donors over $10. It will look almost exactly like this:

Kickstarter-donor EXCLUSIVE poster
Kickstarter-donor EXCLUSIVE poster

Please note that we will have a second official HPLFF-2013 poster with sponsor logos and text. This Kickstarter campaign is your only chance to get a quality print of Jason Thompson's artwork. 

Sunday Shantak Reward - On Sunday afternoon we will bring back our Brunch n' Fun activities at the Grand Vision Foundation annex, just a few doors down from the Warner Grand. This ticket is only good for this day, and includes brunch, again catered by Happy Diner. It does NOT include any drinks ordered from the bar. Sunday will feature games, a live art show, a scavenger hunt, and more still in the works. You will have your ticket mailed to you, and the exclusive Kickstarter poster will be waiting for you. The PDF of HPL art will be emailed.

Ghoul Grab Bag Reward - Snatch some stuff from us and scurry back to your warren: the HPLFF-LA 2013 T-shirt, the Kickstarter-exclusive poster, and a newspaper program will be mailed to you. The PDF of HPL art will be emailed.

There in Spirit Reward - OH NO! You can't make it to San Pedro in September? Have no fear, you can still join the festival! At this reward level we will mail you all the materials the other donors would receive: the tickets, the newspaper program, the Kickstarter-exclusive poster, the T-shirt, the Lovecraft art PDF, and any additional swag we receive such as flyers, magazines, etc. More importantly, you will have EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to a LiveStream of the festival, which will include all the announcements, Q&A, live performances, etc. We will also endeavor to bring you as many of the short films as possible online (perhaps even some that won't be shown in the theater). You will have the opportunity to vote on your favorite short film, helping decide the audience choice winner. If you can acquire the features, you can have your own H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® in your home! Invite your friends! The LiveStream will be interactive and feature private interviews with the guests backstage. We'll do our utmost to give you the HPLFF-LA experience from a distance. We cannot guarantee you will receive the package of goodies before the festival, but we'll send you a PDF of the program at least. We also cannot guarantee quality of the LiveStream, but we will strive for the highest possible.

IA! Full Cthulhu Fhtagn Reward - THIS IS IT! One ticket to the entire festival, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 27-29.

In the past, only two or three of these are made--one for the artist, one for the festival organizer, one for HPLFF founder Andrew Migliore. This year, we will make two more just for this donor reward.

Hell Comes to Hollywood  - This anthology is autographed by editor Eric Miller...

**Nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Anthology by the Horror Writers Association** 

Vampiric producers, ghostly actors, psychotic limousine drivers, murderous stunt men and more haunt the streets and back lots of Hollywood in twenty original horror and suspense stories set in the heart of show business, and written by veteran movie and television professionals.

Copping Squid and Other Mythos Tales by Michael Shea (author), S.T. Joshi (editor) and Steven Gilberts (illustrator) - With eight psychotropic visions of damnation and transformation in the urban coral reef of San Francisco, COPPING SQUID forms a mosaic of otherworldly menace shot through with glimpses of awe-inspiring majesty: of invisible outsiders and self-medicating seekers whose desperate prayers and hidden rituals lead them to behold their alien reflections in the all-seeing eyes of the secret masters of creation. 

The Womb of Time by Brian Stableford (author), S.T. Joshi (editor) Cyril van der Haegen (illustrator) - From Britain's master of the fantastic comes a pair of insidious new novellas that combine the pulp existentialism of the Cthulhu Mythos with a counterfeiter's eye for masterful literary forgery. 

THE WOMB OF TIME: The rustic English village of Dunwich is slowly crumbling into the sea, but a rare tidal event promises to roll back the waves and reveal ancient ruins, buried treasures and the lost true crown of England. Three scholarly pilgrims have come to Dunwich for their own secret reasons, but as they gather at The Hidden Crown, the mysteries that summoned them begin to take on a life of their own, and the seashore offers a brief but shattering glimpse of the ultimate Other. Dreams and debates intertwine with nameless, sentient dread to form a daring deconstruction of the meaning and menace of Cthulhu.

THE LEGACY OF ERICH ZANN: Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, but in the wrong hands, it can open doors to spheres of infinite evil. When a murderer stalks the streets of Paris on the trail of Erich Zann, only Europe's greatest criminal investigator, Auguste Dupin, can hope to foil an insane scheme to take up where the mad violinist left off. With deft craftsmanship that transcends pastiche, Stableford introduces a brilliant reincarnation of Poe's seminal detective to the cosmic irrationality of Lovecraft's Mythos, with explosive results.

Radiant Dawn and Ravenous Dusk two novels by Cody Goodfellow - 

THE BEGINNING IS NEAR - From a ruined chemical weapons bunker in Iraq to a shallow grave in California's San Andreas Fault, the lines are drawn for a shadow war that will decide who, or what, will inherit the earth and reign as the next dominant species.

The Electric Eye, Copping Squid, The Womb of Time, Radiant Dawn and Ravenous Dusk are all courtesy of Perilous Press

Strange Aeons & Morbid Adventures - A miniature skirmish game of Eldritch horror: The aim of a miniature skirmish game is to enact battles between two opponents on a tabletop. In the case of Strange Aeons, one player takes control of a band of heroic Threshold operatives and the other player acts as the evil Lurkers. Games of Strange Aeons are based in a roughly historical setting sometime after 1920 and can take place anywhere in the world. Morbid Adventures expands your Strange Aeons repertoire with a collection of new scenarios to challenge even the most experienced of Threshold operatives. Includes rulebook and scenario book (no minis).

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As with any event, there are associated risks of cancellation. However, the 2012 HPLFF-LA wasn't stopped by Carmageddon, so shy of major disasters or the Great Old Ones rising, this festival will occur rain or shine. This is the fourth year at this theater, so we are getting much better and familiar with the ins and outs of running a festival.

A few issues that may arise are: rewards delayed being made or mailed--though some, like the program papers, will be made prior to the fest; your name being misspelled or left off the program; a guest or vendor is unable to attend; a ticket is not included; your exact T-shirt size is suddenly sold out, or many other hiccups that could occur. But we'll be sure to straighten out any discrepancies as quickly as possible to make sure you have the best time possible. The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® has been running for almost 20 years--we think we know what we're doing, but of course we have room for improvement. We will continue to update our backers as much as possible so you are part of the experience. Thanks!
