Screenings, Screenings, and more SCREENINGS!
I wanted to give a big update on where you can catch a screening of House of Oddities.
This weekend (August 15th & 16th) of course is the big back to back screenings in Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
Friday-August 15th @ 10pm-Crowne Plaza South-Carnegie Room
House of Oddities will screen as part of the annual Horror Realm Con at the Crowne Plaza South in Pittsburgh, PA. In previous years, Horror Realm held its annual convention during mid September but in a change of pace, they have moved the date up to August 15th-17th. The folks over at Horror Realm have always been big supporters of House of Oddities as well as independent film in general. Back in May, they awarded House of Oddities with the Best Director – Feature Film Award as part of their 1st annual independent film festival. Director, Brian Cottington will be on hand for this screening.
Along with a fantastic schedule of independent films, Horror Realm Con also features a jam packed dealer room full of DVDs, posters, independent horror artists and authors, and horror film celebrities. Horror Realm also features an impressive array of celebrity panels and fan favorite events like the Zombie Luau, Burlesque by Steel City Cabaret, VHS screening room, and a Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast!
Saturday-August 16th @10:35pm-Clarion Hotel & Conference Center, Hudson, OH-Screening Room A
Next on the back to back screening schedule is our OHIO PREMIERE! House of Oddities will screen as part of the 19th Annual International Indie Gathering in Hudson, OH this Saturday. The Indie Gathering also awarded House of Oddities with 2nd Place in the Competitive Feature Documentary Category. Director, Brian Cottington will be on hand for the screening on Saturday as well as the award ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
The Indie Gathering is a fantastic gathering of filmmakers and film fans. Along with amazing film screenings, the Indie Gathering also features live FX makeup competitions, stage combat demos and competitions, filmmaker panels and seminars, and an impressive dealer room.

TUGG.COM SCREENINGS ACTIVE…..AGAIN!
So back in late June, we announced that our nation-wide screening request partnership with tugg.com was live and open to the public. Well….it was for about a day. Basically, what happened was the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) ,which is basically what plays at all digital theaters across the country, had encoded incorrectly. After a little over a month of researching the problem with the authoring software and re authoring the DCP; I can announce that Tugg.com has successfully processed the new DCP and screening requests are now open for good!
You can find out how to go about requesting House of Oddities for a theater near you by clicking on the SEE THE FILM tab at the top!
Remember, those who request screenings through tugg.com have the opportunity to make 5% of the ticket sales for events that meet or exceed the presale ticket threshold as well as receive an autographed dvd copy of the film!
