ZRC Calendar Announcement: The Last Dark Carnival/Diabolique Film Festival

They say all good things come to an end, but it’s always sad when the really good ones do.

The Diabolique International Film Festival, formerly The Dark Carnival Film Festival, has been a big part of the ZRC’s existence since the very beginning, always bringing us the latest and greatest in Undead Cinema to review and frequently be offended by.

But this year will be the last.

The Indiana University Cinema hosts the the ninth and final year of the Diabolique International Film Festival. Join us for one last celebration of the horror, science fiction, and fantasy genres, featuring guest filmmakers, special events, and screenings of the best independent shorts and features from around the the world.

Apparently the festival will probably run from Thursday to probably Saturday this year, which is fairly typical, and no doubt provide a healthy slate of films to evaluate for Anti-Zombie prejudice.

The ZRC will be there, with our signs and our passion, in the spirit of the good old days, to give it a proper sendoff.

    That is exceedingly sad, I’m curious why it’s going away. Perhaps it will be revived some day.

    I know from past discussions that everyone who traditionally runs it has been very busy the last few years making, as opposed to showing, films, and the Facebook page mirrors that concern. It is sad.

    We shall go down with the ship, so to speak, protesting all the way. If only I knew someone who could play “Nearer, My God, to Thee” while we pass out literature…
