Artist Tom Neely states: Being the first edition of this festival, I wanted to make sure the arrival of the festival in L.A. was noted. What better than to say: “Hell descends on Hollywood”!
Festival organizer Samuel Douek added: Hollywood has certainly seen a fair amount of film festivals, but none as heavy as this! The artwork celebrates the heavy arrival of metal in Hollywood and I’m very happy with Tom Neely’s fingerprints being all over this soon-to-be historical event.
The Heavy Metal Film Fest will be held from March 31 through April 3, 2011. There is still an open call for submissions, which can include full-length features, documentaries, shorts, “making-of”s and live concerts. The only required theme is that the footage focus on heavy metal music. Deadline for submissions is Friday, February 11th, 2011. The full program will be announced February 18, 2011.
