Founded in 2014, Etheria Film Night has become the world’s most respected showcase of horror, science fiction, fantasy, action, thriller, and dark comedy films directed by women. The 2022 festival has announced their lineup of short film offerings.
American Cinematheque, a non-profit organization that supports all forms of films, will host the 2022 festival. “Etheria puts the women directors who want to make genre films and TV in front of the people who want to hire them,” the festival boasts.
If you want to see the 2022 Etheria Film Festival in person, you can do so at the Los Feliz Theater, June 18th, 2022. Get your tickets here. The titles will also once again stream on Shudder.
