PRINCE GEORGE FILMMAKERS GET STEPHEN KING’S ENDORSEMENT FOR FESTIVAL OF FILMS BASED ON HIS WORK

Stephen King Rules will show 25 films inspired by the horror writer's unpublished short stories

A pair of Prince George, B.C., filmmakers are still reeling from the excitement of having their project endorsed by the king of horror.

Stephen King posted a tweet showing his support for a virtual film festival in the central B.C. city that will pay homage to the author’s work.

The festival, called Stephen King Rules, features 25 films based on King’s unpublished stories and will be hosted on YouTube.

When the author heard about the film festival, he tweeted out, simply: “This is a cool thing.”

“We were losing our minds. It’s like you’re being touched by the master,” said Norm Coyne, one of the two people behind Barker Street Cinema, the Prince George film company organizing the festival.
