BleedFest Invading Tinseltown!
Put together by writer/director/producer/actor/all around kickass person Elisabeth Fies, Bleedfest is an all day film fest spotlighting amazing genre films directed by women. If you are in the LA area or can make the trek from surrounding inhabitations, I highly encourage you to attend this Sunday. You'll be supporting some truly incredible and original independent horror films. Not to mention, the participants involved are genuinely good people.
A blurb along with a rundown of the day's festivities is as follows:
'Come support AMAZING genre films by lady directors! If you don't live in LA, please pass this invite on to cool people who do!! Only $10 for all day admission! Free parking on side streets. There will be DVD giveaways as well as opportunities to meet the filmmakers and support them by purchasing DVDs and merchandise.'
