    Comic-Con International – Independent Film Festival Announces 2010 Slate

    SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con International, the largest comic book convention in the Western Hemisphere, today announced official selections for its 2010 Independent Film Festival. The festival is held in conjunction with the convention from July 22 to 25.

    Filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman (Troma Studios), magazine publisher/filmmaker Kerry O’Quinn (Starlog, Fangoria), and animator Mike Roush (Metalocalypse) are this year’s judges for films in competition. The films selected have no current distribution deals in place.

    “The film festival is a valued part of the convention from both the fans’ and Comic-Con’s perspective,” said David Glanzer, Comic-Con’s director of marketing and public relations. “It continues to be our privilege to offer independent filmmakers this platform to showcase their unique artistic voices.”

    In all, 42 features and shorts will compete in seven categories: Action/Adventure, Animation, Comics-Oriented, Documentary, Horror/Suspense, Humor and Science Fiction/Fantasy. Schedules permitting, many films will have a member of the production company on hand to discuss their project and answer questions from the audience.
