The ‘Overlook Film Festival’ will open in April 2017 at Oregon’s Timberline Lodge, which was used for the exterior setting of the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s famous horror movie ‘The Shining’.

Organizers Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim are planning to present experiential events, work in new and classic horror cinema, and interactive activities at the Timberline, located at the base of Mount Hood, Variety reported.

‘The Shining’ takes place in the fictional Overlook Hotel, a haunted resort in the Colorado Rockies. Kubrick’s movie, starring Jack Nicholson and released in 1980, was based on Stephen King’s 1977 novel.

“We’re so grateful to the Timberline Lodge for providing such a gorgeous, iconic venue in the beautiful location of Mt. Hood, Oregon, where our unique, experiential celebration of all things genre can thrive,” Zakheim said.
