Some really cool news via Dread Central writer Heather Wixson: The first-ever CineMayhem Film Fest will kick off at Muvico Theaters in Thousand Oaks, California on March 2 and 3. The festival is a launch event for Dread Central’s Indie Horror Month.
Founded by WIxson and dedicated to celebrating the spirit of independent filmmaking, the festival will showcase the present and future of independent genre filmmaking. The line-up includes the World Premieres of Roadside directed by Eric England (Madison County) and the latest short film from Ryan Spindell (Kirksdale), The Root of the Problem as well as the West Coast Premieres of two other short films- Paul Davis' (Beware the Moon: Remembering An American Werewolf in London) Him Indoors and Split the Check by Patrick Rea (Nailbiter).
CineMayhem will also feature advanced screenings of two highly anticipated genre projects The ABC's of Death and Breaking Glass Pictures' mind-bending drama K-11 directed by Jules Stewart.
Ticket information and the full festival line-up will be announced later this month; to keep up with all the CineMayhem to come this March, follow us on CineMayhem on Twitter or on Facebook.
Congratulations to Wixson for starting a really cool event. Maybe she’ll even bring the festival to the east coast?
