Viscera Film Festival

The Viscera Film Festival was an annual Los Angeles based horror film festival for women filmmakers only. Originally an online festival, Viscera was founded in 2007 by Shannon Lark and Heidi Honeycutt. In July 2010, the festival became a live event with screenings held at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. All of the screenings were short films. After the Egyptian Theatre premiere, Viscera toured their yearly film lineup at events held around the world for the rest of the year. The Scream Queen Filmfest Tokyo was a subsidiary festival. 

Those that attended Viscera Film Festival were lucky enough to experience films created by many of the most original and dynamic voices in independent filmmaking today as well as a star-studded carpet ceremony, and finally a drinks ceremony for networking with like-minded film enthusiasts and celebrations. 

We know that a number of movies on our site were based in Los Angeles or at least filmed there, including of course Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Nightcrawler and Straight Outta Compton.  

Although the festival is no longer running, it had a huge impact on the film industry for women and was always very popular. We hope to see the return of this awesome film festival one day!
