Just when we stopped thinking about festivals and began to concentrate on the development of the feature film, a wonderful straggler came in! “The Catalyst” became an official selection of the 2017 International Horror Hotel Festival in Cleveland, OH.

The International Horror Hotel Film Festival and Convention is held every June in Hudson, OH. They have open competitions for films, scripts and music videos in the following genres: experimental (film only), fantasy, horror, horror-comedy, slasher, sci-fi and suspense-thriller. They also have a horror film scoring, scream queen and FX makeup competitions. The event features four days of film screenings, two days of panel discussions and lectures, a convention, special guests, networking parties, live competitions and more. The 2017 festival will be held June 15th-18th at The Clarion Inn & Conference Center in Hudson, OH.
