Today, my surfing of the blog-o-sphere has brought to my attention a truly wonderful event/project! Hannah Neurotica, creator and editor of Ax Wound: Gender & the Horror Genre, is organizing a “Women in Horror Recognition month”. This February will be the first year the event takes place, and here is hoping it takes off! If you check out their website, they offer many fun and interesting suggestions to help promote different women in the industry. It can be something as simple as hosting a screening or screenings of films made by women filmmakers, or even writing/making/producing your own horror related art.
Personally, I’m undecided as to what I will do exactly. I will probably watch a bunch of horrors, trying especially to seek out some female horror directors. I am actually working on a horror script of my own at the moment, so I guess I’ll continue with that and not let it fall to the wayside like most of my other projects. I’ll see what else I can come up with, and I’m open to suggestions! Spread the word folks!
