Named in honor of She-Ra’s home planet, the Etheria Film Night is an annual showcase of new sci-fi, fantasy, action, thriller, dark comedy and horror short films directed by women poised to take their vision to the next level. The day begins with a special screening of “Culture Shock” from Hulu’s “Into the Dark” anthology with director Gigi Guerrero in attendance for a Q-and-A with the cast.
Following drinks and red carpet action, Etheria will honor producer Gale Anne Hurd with their Inspiration Award presented by her mentor, Roger Corman. Hurd is responsible for producing some legendary genre films and TV shows, including “Terminator,” which she co-wrote, “Aliens,” “The Abyss,” “Tremors,” “Armageddon” and “The Walking Dead.”
The evening concludes with a screening of eight outstanding short films, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers, awards and an afterparty. Check out the films here.
