A week-long party with real bite is coming to London this summer as the World’s biggest Vampire Festival arrives from Transylvania.

The 2019 International Vampire Film & Arts Festival – aka Vampfest – will take place in various locations across Highgate Village, East Finchley and Camden Town from July 10th-13th.

In Highgate it will showcase the best in new vampire literature, theatre and the latest academic research into the genre; at the Phoenix Cinema we’ll show the best new vamptastic films alongside recognised classics, while in Camden Town after dark things will get scary and sinful with body art exhibitions, a ‘Music of the Night’ Battle of the Bands and the spectacular VampFire Ball.

The festival has been running for three years in the home of the vampire legend and the birthplace of the real Dracula: the spectacular ancient citadel of Sighisoara in Transylvania. Now, the vampires have decided to pack their coffins and travel, drawn by London’s own fanged legends…

Visitors can expect the latest and greatest in all things vampire, including film premieres and classics; Q&As from special guests including legendary author and expert on all things creepy, Kim Newman, and the world’s foremost vampire expert, the ‘Prof of Goth’, Nick Groom. There will also be talks from film industry professionals; book readings and signings by our guests and other leading authors; workshops, seminars, scary talks, scary walks, masterclasses, plays, exhibitions and lots of parties.

There will also be the prestigious ‘Golden Stakes Awards’ ceremony, sponsored by the University of South Wales Faculty of Creative Industries in Cardiff, with prizes for the best new films and literature.

Peter Phillips, IVFAF Co-Producer said: “Bringing IVFAF to London in 2019 is particularly appropriate as it is the 200th anniversary of the publication of The Vampyre, the book that arguably started the public fascination with a genre that seems immortal in in its own right.

“From a vampire media industry point of view, there is no other event like it where filmmakers, writers, actors, authors, academics and fans get to meet and mingle and share a bite to drink."

“And this year we’re going one step further with what is without a doubt going to be the best vampire party anywhere ever. The VampFire Ball in Dingwalls will be a spectacular spectacle of dancing, danger, fire and blood. It’s not to be missed but it might be worth eating some garlic before dressing up for it - everyone knows vampires like to party!”

‘Welcome to our festival. Come freely. Go safely, and leave something of the happiness you bring.’
