I'm a para
...is an online-only festival presented by the producers of Another Hole in the Head--San Francisco’s longest-running genre film festival. Not to be confused with our 18th Annual primary fest coming in December 2021, this is an entirely separate event. As the name suggests, this festival is dedicated to the Odd, the Eerie, and YES—the WARPED!
The festival will take place April 29th - May 2nd, 2021. The films will be streamed to a registered audience via the Zoom platform at scheduled times (no VOD). Many of the filmmakers will join us on Zoom for their shows and participate in live post-screening Q&A sessions. These sessions will be moderated by a member of our staff, who will ask some preliminary questions, and then move on to questions submitted by the audience.
We’ll be screening films of varying length that fit one or more of the following genres:
Science Fiction, Fantasy, Action/Adventure, Horror, Mystery/Thriller, Animation, Art/Experimental, Slasher/Splatter, Warped Comedy, and even some Documentaries and Music Videos that fit in with these themes.
Our audience will use Zoom’s polling function to rate each film they view. The most highly-rated films will receive Audience Awards. In addition, four Staff Awards will be given: Favorite Feature, Favorite Featurette, Favorite Short Film, and Best Trailer (only the trailers for our Official Selections will be considered).
Please stay tuned to this page. In the coming days, we'll be sharing information on how to use the different functions of the Zoom app during the fest, and other important information. The schedule page will be updated on April 5th, with news about which filmmakers will be joining us for live Q&A sessions. Our Trailer and Poster galleries will be up soon after!
