Up third in the quartet of September Festivals presenting my musical short film of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” on-line, Rock Horror Film Festival will be screening the “bizarre featurette” at a different time each day between September 17 and 27.

Like every other festival this year, Rock Horror Film Festival had to rethink their plans in the face of Covid 19. What was originally going to be a traditional in-person movie theater festival in Rio de Janeiro in August is now an on-line festival in September.

This has allowed them to put together an impressive program of films presented in alternating time blocks every day. So depending on the day, you could see my film afternoon, evening or midnight or dawn … I’ll post Tell-Tale’s complete screening schedule below.

Moreover the festival has put together a dizzying array of panel discussions. There are panels in English, in Portuguese and in Spanish. I am participating in six English language panel discussion, with filmmakers taking part from all over the planet. It should be exciting, fun and informative. I’ll post that schedule below too.

But first…

Rock Horror Film Festival asked the directors of selected films to send them a one-minute video message to share.

This is what I concocted with my cell phone:

You can also find the video on the Rock Horror directors’ intros video wall:

There you can watch my clip with Portuguese subtitles and the Rock Horror outro:

Be sure to stick around til the end…
