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.
