“The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” in NYC & Orlando this Weekend

This Saturday, October 22, my short film musical Edgar Allan Poe adaptation will play during the Naked Mountain Film Festival at 253 West 28th Street in NYC, a “day packed with awesome films, as well as two discussion panels, visual artists, and live music.”. The event runs from 2:00-10:30pm, with P&P scheduled to screen at 5pm followed by a Q&A with yours truly.

You can get tickets here. There is a Discount code: NMfilm25 for 25% off.

But if you are closer to Orlando, head out to the Spooky Empire Horror Convention, running October 21-23 in the Orange County Convention Center, featuring “world class vendors, speakers and entertainment“, including tattoo artists, costume contests and a film festival. “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” will screen Sunday October 23 at 11am, closing out a program of “Arthouse Horror”.

“The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” is also nominated for awards in both festivals.
