Alaska’s Denali Film Festival (click here to go there) had accepted my short film musical Edgar Allan Poe adaptation “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” into their 2020 Film Festival, which got postponed because of Covid 19.

Now they are combining both their 2020 and 2021 festivals, today through July 18, with live events in Alaska as well as the ability to stream every film in both festival programs from anywhere with internet through the purchase of a $24 all-access ticket.

From the 2020 and 2021 festival trailers one can see that the Denali Film Festival features a lot of amazing nature photography in both documentary and narrative films.

But they also include some quirky exceptions to that general rule, like my very in-doorsy and dark horror chamber piece. When I asked the festival directors Kim and Darrell about that last year, they just said “We both really enjoy your work! We sang ‘true, nervous, very very dreadfully nervous’ most days the last month.”  Which warmed the cockles of my heart – the one in my chest, not the one I hid under the floorboards…
