Jennifer’s Bodies Film Festival (Glasgow, Scotland)
Date: March 6th and 7th 2015
Organizer(s): Jennifer Cooper
Description: Since 2011, Jennifer‘s Bodies Film Festival in Scotland has continued to grow and grow…moving to a bigger location and venue each year. 🙂
February 2014 saw Starburst Magazine write a review of the festival, and they had THIS to say about the festival and its quirky founder –
“Jennifer’s Bodies is a roving annual festival of female-helmed horror movies and part of Women In Horror Recognition Month, an international assortment of affiliated events organised partly to highlight just how much women can and do contribute to the genre outwith the typically accepted factors of tits, ass and mezzosoprano screaming.”
“The event was hosted by Jennifer Cooper, a genre fanatic and tireless promoter of indie horror. Opinionated, verbose and engaging, she has the all the nerdy enthusiasm of Felicia Day, the encyclopaedic knowledge of Quentin Tarantino, the effortless charisma of Jennifer Lawrence and the warped humour of Eli Roth. Or to put it another way, she’s basically an amalgamation of Jen and Sylvia Soska. She also possesses an amazing ability to link anyone and everything to The X-Files along with an unabashed fixation with Jeremy Renner, both of which were frequently demonstrated.”
This year, due to the opportunity to have Miss Tristan Risk herself come along, Jennifer‘s Bodies has bled into March. The festival shall beheld on Friday 6th, and Saturday 7th March 2015, with special guest Tristan Risk…and more to be announced shortly!
