Dracula Film Festival

  • Teatrul Sica Alexandrescu (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A film festival dedicated to horror, fantasy and SF movies.

The festival "brings 'fresh blood' in an area where this iconic character was used until now only as a pretext for kitschy tourist traps. It is a festival like no other in Romania, because it combines the masochistic pleasure of anticipation and horror with unlimited imagination; it is a place of both horror films and fantasy or SF."
