The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival stands with the Black Lives Matter movement. H. P. Lovecraft was a pulp author during the 1920s and 1930s, and is one of the most influential horror writers of the modern era. Like many American historical figures, he is problematic due to his racist personal beliefs. The festival believes in celebrating his substantial influence on art, music, film, and literature, while acknowledging but firmly rejecting his racist views. The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival’s mission has always been to encourage and showcase new voices that expand on the cosmic horror genre. An integral part of the festival’s programming is highlighting the amazing breadth and diversity of modern cosmic horror.
