This year, the 2017 Etheria Film Festival will feature the femme future of sci-fi and horror, spotlighting pics that highlight the terror of technology, doctors making difficult decisions, jingles from hell and a honeymoon gone horribly, horribly wrong.
The annual showcase of female genre helmers announced its short film lineup, an array of sci-fi, horror and action films from burgeoning female directors with a unique vision in the industry.
“Etheria’s reputation precedes itself with its solid showcase of films and classic Hollywood venue,” said filmmaker Tara Price. “I’m so proud they chose ‘Earworm’ to be a part of this year’s line-up!
Co-presented by the American Cinematheque, the Etheria Film Fest partners includes Alliance of Women Directors, Seeking Our Story, Women in Media, MUFF Society, Horrible Imaginings, Slaughter Movie House, Midsummer Scream, and Days of the Dead, among many others.
The Etheria Film Festival is set for June 3.
