Vampire Film Fest 

The Vampire Film Festival has resurrected itself in New Orleans. Two previous events were held in Los Angeles, but organizers decided the Big Easy is the rightful home for the slate of events, which include an international array of short and feature films, a vampire ballet, a costume ball (at Ye Olde Original Dungeon at 10:30 p.m. Saturday), events with horror writers, a French Quarter scavenger hunt and more. The opening night party is at the Saint (961 St. Mary St.) at 10 p.m. Friday. The undead and eternally damned run amok in feature films including Shadowland (pictured), The Death of Alice Blue, Mangal Sutra, Let Me Die Quietly and others. Programs of short films are dedicated to subgenres such as gothic, mythic and vampire themes, and styles range from grainy and dark bloodletting spectacles to slicker and light-hearted high-school-from-hell shorts a la Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Film screenings take place at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center (1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., 827-5858).
