H. P. Lovecraft was a pulp author in the 1920s and 1930s, and is one of the most influential horror writers of the modern era. Like many historical figures, he is problematic due to his racist personal beliefs. The festival believes in recognizing his substantial influence on art, music, film, and literature, while firmly rejecting and openly discussing his racist views. The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival’s mission is to celebrate the amazing breadth of modern cosmic horror through film, panel discussions, and live events, and showcase new diverse voices in the cosmic horror genre.
