Vampire Film Festival

by Catherine Karp

Vampire Fest 2009 is coming to New Orleans October 23 - 26, 2009. Events will include a four-day film festival of vampire and gothic features and shorts, two nights of the ballet A VAMPIRE TALE, a fashion show, costume parties, performance artists, and a paranormal literary panel featuring authors Gabrielle Faust, Bridget Morrow, Nicole Peeler, Erin McCarthy, and Van Jensen.

Filmmakers: Submissions are still OPEN.  Vampire Fest is seeking narrative or experimental films of all lengths that emphasize the grotesque, mysterious or desolate.  Since the legends of the werewolf and other supernatural creatures are interconnected with that of the vampire, Vampire Fest also accepts films of the Gothic, zombie, werewolf, witch or ghost genre.  Filmmakers can submit online at or at until September 16, 2009.


Further details will be announced on our site in the coming weeks, and ticket sales will begin by month’s end.
