Viscera Film Festival 2012 Official SelectionsThe Viscera Organization is pleased to announce that the official selections have been made for the 2012 Viscera Film Festival Carpet Ceremony and Tour.  Featuring the best new short horror films by women, the Viscera Film Festival’s carpet ceremony is taking place on July 7th at the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA. A fantastic lineup, consisting of 13 shorts, was carefully selected by Viscera’s special guest judges and staff to provide the audience with the most original, innovative, and dynamic horror films being made by women today. Fresh Blood, Viscera’s newest category, features the best shorts made by girls 18 and under. These films provide a promising look at some of the horror genre’s up and coming filmmakers.

In addition to the amazing short film lineup, the audience will also be treated to a very special sneak peek screening of Danielle Harris’ directorial feature debut Among Friends, starring Alyssa Lobit, AJ Bowen, and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn. Among Friends is a twisted film about a dinner party gone wrong. Set against an 80s backdrop, the good time takes a dark turn when one in the group hijacks the evening in an attempt to help the others come clean about their secret betrayals against one another–and is willing to cut through the bone in order to expose the truth.

Among Friends. This dinner party’s gonna be KILLER.

Viscera’s carpet ceremony will kick off an international tour for the selected short films with a curated program of a whopping 73 shorts, including a fantastic lineup of selected films that aren’t screening at The Egyptian Theatre. The Viscera Tour landed in 25 venues in the past year, ranging from movie houses to universities, screening an eclectic program of shorts that have been curated since 2007. Viscera will be screening in Toronto with Fangoria Entertainment’s Fright Nights with Curio-Media, as well as co-hosting a 2 day symposium and screening at UCD in Dublin, Ireland. Go here to see the upcoming Viscera Tour events.

The July 7th carpet ceremony is a co-presentation brought to you by the American Cinematheque and Viscera Film Festival and they intend to make it one hell of a party. Tickets will go on sale in late May. For now, visit the Viscera Organization’s website for more information.
