"In previous years, we held FearCON at various movie theaters around the Phoenix area," said festival director Chris McLennan. "We've been growing every year and expect to have our largest turnout ever in November. So we're going outdoors. This is going to be our breakout year."

FearCON (www.phoenixfearcon.com) features independent films, entertainers, panel discussions, Special FX Demonstrations, T.A.R.D.I.S. will be there for Dr Who Fans, screen writers, paranormal investigators and a Saturday night concert by Hardwire and Epitaph Romance.

There will be celebrity Guests from "The Walking Dead" "Sharknado 2" and "American Horror Story."

In addition, there will be an opportunity to work side-by-side as apprentice Paranormal Investigators, with the Crossing Over Paranormal Society (C.O.P.S.), on a project "Fear Sensory Overload."

Because FearCON will be operating outdoors for the first time, the festival needs a large canopy for the safety and comfort of attendees. "We want to take care of our fans, and make sure that the location is covered to protect them from too much sun, rain or wind," he said.

McLennan needs $9,000 to cover the cost of the canopy plus labor and city permits. To generate this capital, she has launched an Indiegogo campaign, which can be viewed at www.indiegogo.com/projects/we-need-a-canopy-at-the-phoenix-fearcon-vi.

Donations of any amount are welcome and discounted tickets are available for those who support this project. For a contribution of $25, backers will receive a one-day pass ($35 value) plus a FearCON sticker and poster. For a $50 donation, a two-day pass (regularly $55) is available as well as a festival sticker and poster.

A $1,000 pledge gets you a VIP weekend pass to FearCON plus a pre-show party, meals and a festival T-shirt.

"We have a lot of horror fans in the Phoenix area and we're counting on them to help support this project," said Chris McLennan. "You can't really have an outdoor event in this part of the country without a canopy."
