Support Red 14 Films’ Four Literary Short Films



With less than two weeks remaining and 47% funding reached, Red 14 Films, partnering with authors Jason Ockert, Matt Bell, Monica Drake, and Scott Dominic Carpenter, aims to produce literary short films for each of their most recent books:


Neighbors of Nothing (Dzanc Books)


In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods (Soho Press)


The Stud Book (Crown Publishers)


This Jealous Earth (Midwestern Gothic Press)

We at HFR can attest to the beauty of the company’s work, having had a small role in their short blurb trailer for Joshua Kornreich’s eBook release of The Boy Who Killed Caterpillars (Dzanc Books), which can be seen here.

The full trailer, which is just as mesmerizing, can be viewed here.

Also, author Stefan Kiesbye, who has work forthcoming in HFR 3.1, has worked with Red 14 Films, for his novel, Your House Is on Fire, Your Children All Gone (Penguin). View the trailer here.

More about Red 14 Films:

“Since its inception in 2011, the independent film production company Red 14 Films has produced over forty literary short films, known also as cinematic book trailers. Their decidedly artistic approach has earned them partnerships with authors such as Anthony Swofford (Jarhead), Victoria Redel (Loverboy), and Stefan Kiesbye (Your House is on Fire, Your Children All Gone), and performances in their productions by actors like Oscar nominee Eric Roberts.”

Listen to the actor Eric Roberts on his experience in the trailer for The Whipping Club, by Deborah Henry (T.S. Poetry Press) here.
