2010 Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival: Official Lineup

Typically lost amongst all the big media hoopla of panels, booths, celebrity appearances, etc., is that San Diego’s annual Comic-Con hosts an International Independent Film Festival that runs concurrently along with the convention, which will be this year on July 22-25.

This is a full-fledged fest with short and feature-length films from all over the world that are typically either genre or comic book related. The full lineup of films screening this year is listed below. Screening blocks are broken up by genre: Action/Adventure, Animation, Comics, Horror, Documentary, Humor and Science Fiction.

Not listed below are the assorted panels that will be held specifically for the festival. Plus, on Sunday there will be an Awards Presentation followed by repeat screenings of all the winners.

The festival is doing something a little bit differently this year in that it’s not going to be held in the actual convention center.

'The Guild' #1 Review: Felicia Day Brings Cyd's Origin Story To Comics

To be honest, it's a bit surprising that it's taken this long for "The Guild" creator and "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" actress Felicia Day to make her debut in the comics world. An eternally multitasking creator involved with an endless array of geek-friendly projects, Day somehow found time to write a three-issue comic based on her award-winning online series.

Published by Dark Horse Comics, "The Guild" features a story by Day and art by "Street Angel" creator Jim Rugg. The first issue hit shelves today.

Preview: Felicia Day Brings 'The Guild' To Comics

With prominent roles in Joss Whedon's television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and his online musical "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," actress Felicia Day already has a lot of fans — but for many people (myself included), it's her ongoing web series "The Guild" that first won her a place of honor in our geeky little hearts.

Chronicling the adventures of gamer Cyd Sherman as she navigates the troubled waters of real-life drama and relationships in both the online and offline worlds, "The Guild" has been described as a "love letter to gaming." Day stars, writes and produces the award-winning web series, which recently saw its third season released on DVD.

And now she's bringing it to the comic book world.

MTV News caught up with the hardworking actress/filmmaker to chat about the upcoming "The Guild" comic hitting shelves March 24 from Dark Horse Comics. Day wrote the script for the three-issue series,
