Etheria Film Night at the Egyptian Theatre for the American Cinematheque screens an annual showcase of the best new short genre films (horror, sci-fi, fantasy, action, thriller) directed by women for an audience including producers, managers, show-runners, and distributors. The festival’s goal is to connect industry professionals with untapped female directing talent for genre film and TV series.
Etheria Film Night is open for rolling submissions all year long, but to be considered for the 2015 lineup, you must submit your film before March 31st, 2015. Filmmakers can submit online for free at etheriafilmnight.com/
In 2014, we hosted the Los Angeles premiere of Rose McGowan’s directorial debut Dawn, 2014 AFI Directing Workshop for Women graduate Sarah Doyle’s You Me & Her starring Shannon Woodward and Tina Majorino, and international premieres of Soulmate by Axelle Carolyn, Job Interview by Julia Walter, Dia de Los Muertos by Gigi Guerrero, and Wakening by Danis Goulet. Our festival was covered by LA Weekly, Bitch Magazine, and i09 (among others) and as a result, companies like Circle of Confusion management (The Walking Dead) met with our filmmakers for representation deals. For 2015, we’re hoping to get even more recognition for our filmmakers and even better results.
Etheria Film Night 2015 will take place at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California in June, 2015. 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.
