#5: LepreCon 40

#4 | #6

The first time I hosted an Apocalypse Later mini-film festival was at LepreCon 39 in May 2013. That means that when I reprised the event with entirely new material for LepreCon 40 in May 2014, I was celebrating my first year as a programmer. I did so officially at the Jerome Indie Film & Music Festival in mid-June when I re-screened each of the local sci-fi shorts that I've screened at various events over the year.

I'd learned a lot by this point and while I was still including a feature in my programming, I'd only do that once more and then for a special case.

This was a reasonably international set. Three were local Arizona shorts, with two more from elsewhere in the United States. The UK, the Netherlands, Israel and Greece also contributed a short film to round out the set. The feature was also American, a 1973 picture in the public domain called Idaho Transfer, directed by no less a name than Peter Fonda.

The theme of LepreCon 40 was '50 Shades of Green', which was tough to follow, but it did give me the opportunity to include films as diverse as Evergreen and Idaho Transfer It also gave me a fun introductory image, because the first thing the theme conjured up for me was muppet porn.
