Dear List Members,

I invite you to view the Fantastic Film Festivals (FFF), US & Canada website: https://fff.omeka.net/
If you have comments, questions, or feedback, please visit the site's About/Contact page.
If you would like to contribute by adding material, please use the site's Contribute form.

FFF is a collection of fantastic film fest artifacts and resources. Browse or search US & Canadian horror, science fiction, and fantasy film festival programs (original and reformatted), logos/images, data sets, analysis, and literature citations. FFF promotes scholarship and cultural heritage participation. Media scholars, genre enthusiasts, festival programmers, cinephiles, curators, media makers, and librarians are invited to explore & contribute to this site.

This site emphasizes:

  *   collecting programs and schedules from fantastic film festivals & reformatting them for scholarship & analysis, convenient searching, and cultural heritage preservation
  *   academic resources and scholarly endeavors seeking to expand upon US/Canadian fantastic film festival knowledge and literature
  *   compiling resources for dedicated genre enthusiasts & festival attendees seeking to identify festivals, films, or directors for personal enrichment

The FFF site is a project to explore the tools and roles of librarians in digital humanities research while analyzing genre fest programming and resources. The site creator and administrator, Linda Rath, is a librarian at Newman Library, Baruch College, The City University of New York (CUNY). A PSC-CUNY Research Award was received as support to further expand the site and share results.

Best regards,
Linda Rath
