original article by The Mercury News


If you’re already hankering for next Halloween, here’s something to tide you over: The annual Another Hole in the Head film festival screams its way into the Bay Area beginning Dec. 1, ready to scare the dickens out of fans with more than 30 feature films and 200-plus shorts specializing in twisted sci-fi, horror and/or fantasy fare. Many are rife with Bay Area talent. Most of the films will also be offered online.

There will be lively Zoom conversations with key filmmakers, along with some cast members and creators popping in at in-person screenings.

In-person screenings kick off 6:30 p.m. Dec. 3 with director Samuel Tressler IV’s trippy reinterpretation of Greek mythology’s “Leda and the Swan.” Titled “Leda,” the B&W drama will be shown in 3-D. (Both 3-D and 2-D will be available to stream).

Details: Through Dec. 15; in-person screenings at the New People Cinema, San Francisco; most screenings $15; proof of vaccination required, masks must be worn in the theater; tickets, passes, schedule and more information at www.ahith.com.
