2nd Annual International Vampire Film and Arts Festival
Sighisoara, Romania – TRANSYLVANIA
May 25th-28th, 2017
Arnzen will be participating in the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival — on May 25th-28th, 2017…in Transylvania!
IVFAF brings together vampire creatives from across the world in one cross-industry event –- an intense four-day program of film screenings, performing art, book readings, product launches, Q&As, seminars, workshops, networking events and lots of parties. Alongside the industry event is the largest academic conference in the world specifically focused on the vampire genre. And where else to hold this unique event but in the Romanian community of Transylvania – within the walls of the dramatic medieval citadel that was the birthplace to the real Vlad Dracula?
On behalf of the MFA in Writing Popular Fiction program at Seton Hill University, Mike Arnzen and Nicole Peeler will be curating a day of scholarly talks called “Children of the Night: The Vampire Across Popular Culture.” Other themes at the academic symposium are being developed on (En)Gendering the Vampire (Kutztown U) and The Vampire on Screen (Emerson College). See the academic symposium page for further details, and a formal call for presentation proposals (deadline Feb 1st 2017).
More details to follow.
