About the Festival
The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival promotes the works of H.P. Lovecraft, literary horror, and weird tales through the cinematic adaptations by professional and amateur filmmakers. The festival was founded in 1995 by Andrew Migliore in the hope that H.P. Lovecraft would be rightly recognized as a master of gothic horror and his work more faithfully adapted to film and television.
From New Horizons:
I am sorry to report that Roger will not be able to attend the Lovecraft Film Festival. Complications have assailed his latest project, and as a result, he will be out of the state filming for the month of September. He acknowledges the time you have spent helping arrange this event and regrets that he must now decline the invitation.
We will still show a 35mm print of "The Haunted Palace" starring Vincent Price.
The 2011 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival® in San Pedro will be the first to screen a newly restored 35mm print of "Berkeley Square" from 1933. Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
Lovecraft liked the movie, and it inspired him to write "The Shadow Out of Time". The grandchildren of director Frank Lloyd will introduce and share their memorabilia of the picture, which was Lloyd's favorite. He also directed "Mutiny on the Bounty" with Clark Gable (Best Picture). Read more
Arkham, 1975: Jonathan Davis' father has disappeared. His tracks lead to Germany, to the Swabian-Franconian Forest where he was stationed after the Second World War.

Set in New England in the late 1920s, two friends Randolph Carter and Joel Manton spend a sunny autumn afternoon in a remote 17th century cemetery. An argument arises, concerning the horror stories written by Carter especially one story that draws Manton's sarcasm. It's centered around a creature so horrifying, that it cannot be named or described: the Unnamable... Manton, as a schoolteacher and firm believer in science, can`t imagine anything that could be truly unnamable. Encouraged by the atmosphere of the old burial ground Carter tells his friend about the origin of the story. Read more
