‘Impactus’ Featured in Etheria Film Event 2017 UPDATED | Redux Reports
Hollywood Redux original short film, “Impactus,” is set to screen with Etheria Film Night’s World Tour Event! The Tour is kicked off with a main event in Hollywood, CA, Saturday June 3 at the historic Egyptian theater and with an awards ceremony hosted by legendary horror film maestro Roger Corman. Etheria showcases new sci-fi, fantasy, action, thriller and horror films directed by women in order to highlight women directors making exciting genre films and to connect these filmmakers to industry professionals.
Saturday’s event will screen a program of shorts. Dread Central recently reported on the final film lineup and Hollywood Redux crew will be in attendance, streaming (Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram @hollywoodredux).
“Impactus” is set to screen on tour with Etheria at the Midsummer Scream Convention in Long Beach, CA on July 29 in their “Screaming Room.” Following all the screenings there will be Q&As with the directors in attendance and several HR crew will be representing the film, including lead actor, Jennifer Weisner (follow Jenn on Twitter).
Etheria programmer Heidi Honeycutt says of this year’s films:
“Every year there’s a definite trend in the submissions based on what’s happening in the mainstream world of genre TV and film. The year that ‘The Walking Dead’ came out on Netflix in Europe, Etheria received so many European zombie films; last year it was superhero action and martial arts, when ‘Jessica Jones’ and other Marvel shows were premiering. It depends on what’s popular at the moment. This year it’s body horror. So many women have submitted crazy-good horror films that screw with your perception of reality and your body. Tara Price’s Earworm, in our main lineup, is a great example of this trend. It’s awesome and gruesome, and we can’t wait for the audience to see it.”
Price adds, “Etheria’s reputation precedes itself with its solid showcase of films and classic Hollywood venue. I’m so proud they chose Earworm to be a part of this year’s line-up!”
The 2017 Etheria Film Night Hollywood Showcase still has tickets available on Facebook. The event is hosted by American Cinematheque, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting all forms of films through screenings at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.
