HOLLYWOOD, California – Screamfest Horror Film Festival, billed as America’s largest and longest-running horror movie festival, will honor prolific film and television producer Gale Anne Hurd with the Career Achievement Award Oct. 16.

The awards presentation will be followed by screenings of the beloved horror-action movies “Aliens” and “The Terminator,” according to a news release.

Hurd started her career working with legendary director and producer Roger Corman at New World Pictures. She then launched her career when she produced and co-wrote (with director James Cameron) her first feature film, “The Terminator,” which was a box office and critical success.

She quickly followed that success with “Aliens,” which received seven Oscar nominations and won two Academy Awards.

Today, she is not only an executive producer of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” she also executive produces “Fear the Walking Dead” and consults with AMC’s top-rated talk show, “The Talking Dead.”

Screamfest, which will run Tuesday through Oct. 18 at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood, will showcase a total of 21 feature films and 60 short films. For more information, go to
