“We Vhant Your Movies!”

Scranton, PA – January 8, 2013 – Attention moviemakers: The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple is a holding a contest you can really sink your teeth into! We are looking for your short vampire videos. The 3-5 minute video must have a general theme of Dracula and/or vampires, but beyond that, knock yourself out!

The Vampire video contest is part of “Virst Vriday: Vhat is a Vampire?” “Virst Vriday” is presented by the SCC, Everhart Museum and the Lackawanna County Library System. The collaboration is inspired by the upcoming Everhart Museum Exhibit, Blood is the Life: Vampires in Art and Nature.  On Friday, February 1st, 2013, the Scranton Cultural Center will host “Virst Vriday” as part of the free “First Friday” trail. The evening will include: a showing of the winning Vampire inspired short-videos, art work depicting Dracula, and concludes with a screening of the 1922 classic silent horror film. In addition to the video contest, the Everhart Musuem and the Lackawanna County Library System are seeking drawing or mixed media pieces that illustrate your best interpretation of vampires – think classical, romantic, pop culture, creepy crawly or completely out of the box.  The winners of the video/visual contests will not only have their pieces featured prior to the film, but will also receive a one year individual membership to the Everhart Museum and tickets to the March 12th film lecture entitled “How to Produce an Independent Film with No Budget” presented by JVW Inc. and the Scranton Cultural Center.

For a complete a list of entry rules and information on how to submit your video visit  All submissions are due no later than January 24, 2013. No late submissions will be accepted.
