The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with good friend Miguel Rodriguez about Horrible Imaginings Film Festival, celebrating ten years of genre programming. We talk about our previous involvement as well as the exciting things going on with the festival itself and what the future holds for HIFilmFest. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
About Miguel Rodriguez
Miguel Rodriguez is the founder and Executive Director of the Horrible Imaginings Film Festival, a San Diego-based film festival dedicated to genre cinema, performance, and art. He is also a film curator and programmer for San Diego Latino Film Festival, The Film Geeks San Diego, Digital Gym Cinema, and the Museum of Photographic Arts.
The 2019 Horrible Imaginings Film Festival will take place from August 30th – September 1st at The Frida Cinema in Santa Ana, CA.
Established in 2009, the annual Horrible Imaginings Film Festival showcases the newest voices in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genre cinema over a multi-day event that consists of film screenings, diverse panels, parties, and networking sessions.
Our mission is to spotlight genre cinema, amplify artistic voices, and foster a community of acceptance. We sincerely believe in the sharing and exploring of our deepest fears, desires, and anxieties in a community setting. This festival provides the opportunity to not only explore these emotions but also exorcise them.
Horrible Imaginings Film Festival has been rated among the “Top 100 Best Reviewed Film Festivals” on FilmFreeway. Additionally, MovieMaker Magazine has designated us as one of the “Top 50 Film Festivals Worth The Entry Fee.”
Over the past 9 years, we have shown over 700 genre titles and welcomed over 8,000 attendees.
In our second segment, we chat about the TV Series, Blood & Treasure, now that the season has ended (spoiler-free). We also chat about the Weird Al show we attended last weekend. We also highlight recent articles posted to the tggeeks.com in the past week. As always we have our birthdays and we have the ever-popular feedback segment.
We welcome your feedback. Please, let us know what you think. Good or bad, we want to know and you could receive a shoutout in the feedback segment. Thank you for listening, we really do appreciate you taking time out of your day to spend with us.

Support Independent Creators
As you know we are huge supporters of Independent Creators and not just in film. TG Geeks supports any kind of creative outlet that’s independent in nature. We know we’re always pushing something, but we’re passionate about supporting indie artists. We ask that you to take a look at the independent creators we talk about and any others you may discover on your own and give a helping hand. It doesn’t have to be much, but every little bit helps in the scheme of things.
