THE INTERNATIONAL HORROR HOTEL ANNOUNCES FILM LINEUP AND AWARDS
4th edition will feature a total of 79 films.
Cleveland, OH (May 1, 2015) – This week, the International Horror Hotel announced its official awards list and film selections for the 4th edition of the festival. Horror Hotel is a yearly celebration of the best independent horror and science fiction films from around the world, uniting film fans, filmmakers and industry professionals who share a love of the genre.
This year's festival will highlight 17 feature films and 62 short films from around the world. The films featured in the lineup represent 15 states and 15 foreign countries. These will screen in two screening rooms over a period of three days, June 5th-7th. The festival also features two days of film lectures and panel discussions, a convention, special effects makeup competitions, scream queen competition, networking parties and more.
“Not only do you get to see great horror films, you also meet the creators of the films: the producers, directors, actors, writers, crew,” says festival director Ray Szuch. “Unlike many festivals, all of our visitors are in one location for the entire weekend, maximizing the opportunity for industry networking and a chance for spectators to meet the filmmakers and learn more about the creative process.”
All festival events will be held at The Clarion Inn & Conference Center, located at 6625 Dean Memorial Parkway in Hudson, Ohio, conveniently located between Cleveland and Akron. The full film lineup and the awards list for film, script and film scoring competitions can be found at www.horrorhotel.net, along with directions, ticket information and vendor information. Additional event updates will continue to be added as the event grows closer.
This weekend (Aug. 15-17) is The 19th Indie Gathering International Film Festival and Convention, which will be held at The Clarion Inn & Conference Center in Hudson (6625 Dean Memorial Parkway). Weekend passes, day passes and individual film tickets will be sold at the door.
What's The Indie Gathering?
The Indie Gathering International Film Festival is three days chock-full of indie film fun! This year, the festival is screening 113 films from around the world! We also have film lectures and panel discussions all day Saturday and Sunday, a convention room, special guests and networking parties. If you're an actor, you may want to check out the monologue competition. Stunt person or martial artist? Check out our stunt competition. You can register for either or both at the door. We also have live FX makeup competitions going on throughout the weekend.
So why should you be there?
Aside from having a great time, learning about all aspects of filmmaking and seeing fantastic indie films, this is an excellent opportunity to NETWORK. Whether you're new to the business or a seasoned professional, networking is very important to furthering your career in the film industry. The Indie Gathering is a great chance to do just that, because unlike your typical general audience, our audiences consist of people working in the industry. Actors, crew people, producers, directors, writers, musicians. You name it, they're there. Don't just take our word for it. MovieMaker Magazine agrees. In 2008, the festival was chosen as one of the Top 25 Film Fests and selected as the Best Fest for Networking.
So come on out to The Clarion Inn, and see what this event has to offer you.

Working in stunts for film bridges the gap between martial arts and acting. Are you a stuntperson looking for more work, or a martial artist interested in crossing over into stunts?
