Souls captured by Asia Hassan


Stereo Argento recognizes that women have limited representation in the production of cinema, within the festival circuit, as well as on screen. Each Stereo Argento, we will be donating a percentage of the door to different women-in-film programs/festivals/institutions to offer equal opportunity to female genre-filmmakers and to advocate for diversity in film and the representations of women in horror.


Forever Yours in Gore,
Meredeath and Jillian Gnarling
