Insect Fear Film Festival
The 30th Annual Insect Fear Film Festival took place on February 23, 2013. The theme for this year was The InsX-Files: The Truth (About Insects) Is Out There, with special guest Chris Carter, creator of the X-Files. The festival featured the episode The X-Files: "The War of the Coprophages," about a wave of deaths linked to what may be alien robotic cockroaches, followed by the 1998 feature The X-Files: Fight the Future, about killer bees that transmit a deadly alien virus by stinging. The event featured a variety of exhibits and activities, including exotic insect displays from around the world, the insect petting zoo, face painting and entries from the annual insect art contest.
