The Idaho Horror Film Festival is the only all women run horror film festival in the world and we decided to celebrate it this year. From our posters, to our guests and our programming have all been carefully planned to give added exposure to women.  I sincerely hope you join me next weekend.  This next Saturday, October 14th we are hosting a free “Women in Film" panel at Amsterdam Lounge at 2pm.  This panel will explore the unique challenges gender plays in the medium of film.  Bloody Marys and Mimosas will be available for purchase.  This event is 21+
