The Romantic and Vampiric Five

This year, we have created a very special film section for our audience, which corresponds to the main theme of the festival. THE ROMANTIC AND VAMPIRIC FIVE contains films about vampires, in which these creatures are shown from many interesting perspectives.

In the films we have selected for you, you will see their protagonists not only as the bloodthirsty and fearsome monsters, but also as beings tormented by purely human emotions and maladies. Seen through the eyes of Werner Herzog and Neil Jordan, their vampires are very similar to how Francis Ford Coppola saw them: their greatest desire is to find love, for which they would willingly sacrifice their nature and immortality. To them, immortality seems to be the harshest of punishments, as they suffer it alone.

In Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, we see an attempt to reinterpret the classic novel ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker. The film director introduced elements and tricks that would change the genre for ever.

In ‘Dracula’ by Tod Browning, the vampire becomes an intriguing character, and the film balances on the verge of silent cinema and sound film.

In ‘Vampyr’ by Carl Theodor Dreyer, you will see a world filled with supernatural beings, where the film director uses light tricks to build an atmosphere of horror.

‘Nosferatu the Vampyre’ by Werner Herzog, on the other hand, is the first film where the craving for love overpowers the lust for blood. In over fifty years after the film by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, we are offered a remake of the classic film, in which Dracula now shows purely human emotions.

Finally, in the Oscar nominee ‘Interview with the vampire’ by Neil Jordan, featuring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Kirsten Dunst among the cast, we see them play the immortal beings strikingly similar to the people they live among.

Immerse yourselves in the idea of immortal love, which has the power to change even the monsters living for thousands of years!
