First edition of Dracula Film: Horror& Fantasy Film Festival, in Brasov and Bran, October 31 - November 3


The first edition of the Dracula Film: Horror&Fantasy Film Festival will take place in Brasov and Bran (north of Bucharest) over October 31 - November 3, according of a release of the organisers .

'The Festival is addressed to all those who love watching films, from children to adults, offering them a chance to have fun in an universe full of inventions and boundless imagination', said the press release.

During the four days of the Festival, to begin on Halloween, the offer of classical films - legends of the genre, but also new productions - will be very rich. There will be shown 40 films, with Dracula, zombies and intergalactic monsters, films produced in 2013, SF films, children's films and surprises offered by the Romanian cinematography.

The screenings will take place at the Reduta Cultural Centre, Patria Cinematheque, the Bran Castle. The programme of the Festival will be completed with meetings with the special guests of the Festival, book launches and thematic parties.

'We are convinced that this will be a Festival like no other in Romania, because it will combine the masochistic pleasure of getting frightened with an universe defined by the boundless fantasy and anticipation. The Festival wants to infuse fresh authentic blood in an area where Dracula, this iconic character, was only used as a pretext for attracting tourists in kitsch traps', said the artists manager of the Festival, Anca Gradinariu, in the press release.

The event was organised by the Fanzin Cultural Association, the City Hall, the County Council, the Reduta Cultural Centre in Brasov, in cooperation with the Patria Cinematheque, the Bran Castle and the KunSTadt Art Events Management.
