Finally, a PRESS RELEASE:
Reel Energy Entertainment, the Pasadena-based media company that produced the Vampire Film Series and Festival (aka Vampire Fest) is proud to announce that Vampire Fest will be coming home to New Orleans. Though Vampire Fest originated in Hollywood, it was always the plan of Reel Energy President, Asif Ahmed, to bring the event home to New Orleans. As Asif noted in 2004, “New Orleans is birthplace of jazz, voodoo and Anne Rice. With its great nightlife, Gothic architecture and diverse population, New Orleans is the ideal location for Vampire Fest.”

Unfortunately, Hurricane Katrina intervened, the city lay in ruins and
Reel Energy was forced to delay Vampire Fest’s move to New Orleans; finally, in Autumn 2009, we will to come home to the Big Easy, present our festival and help rebuild this beautiful city. Vampire Fest plans to interact with the New Orleans Film Commission and Mayor’s Office and will also involve the New Orleans Red Cross and New Orleans Blood Bank and sponsor one of the biggest blood drives in the city’s history.

It is our hope to use
Vampire Fest as a path for aspiring filmmakers working in this unique genre to meet producers and distributors who are looking for exceptional product to market. Most importantly, Vampire Fest will be part of the effort to rebuilt New Orleans. The venues and dates will be announced later in the year.

Vampire Fest accepts all films that could be classified in the context of vampire, supernatural and the bizarre. A filmmaker can even submit a documentary about Goth people or about Gothic architecture. Vampire Fest will accept any narrative or experimental film that emphasizes the grotesque, mysterious or desolate. The legend of the werewolf is interconnected with that of vampire and Vampire Fest is open to films of the Goth, zombie, werewolf or ghost genre.
