Hey, indie horror filmmakers out there – looking for festivals to submit your genre film to but are tired of paying insane entry fees? Then why not submit your movie for the 12th Annual TromaDance Film Festival, being held in Asbury Park, NJ this upcoming April 22-23.
Troma Entertainment’s Lloyd Kaufman created the festival over a decade ago as part of counter-programming during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah every year, with last year being the first time TromaDance was held in NJ.
The deadline for submissions for this upcoming year is February 18, 2011, and the best part is- the entry fee is free! So, aspiring filmmakers out there, what are you waiting for? Get over to the official TromaDance website to submit your work now!
TromaDance is the first film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and fans. Unlike every other film festival, TromaDance does not charge filmmakers to submit their films. Entrance to all screenings is free and open to the public. Also, there are no VIP reservations or preferential treatment regarding films, panels, or parties of any kind given. The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially when it comes to new filmmakers. Art – in all its forms – is for the people!
TromaDance features a range of films made independently, usually without big stars, big money and far removed from the Hollywood studio system. The official selections of TromaDance have been made with nothing more than passion, courage, integrity, and raw talent.
Everyone at TromaDance is treated as an equal. The elite and the celebrated are treated no better or worse than the experimental filmmaker or the random moviegoer off the street. Admittance to all screenings, panels, parties, and events is strictly on a first come, first served basis. If there are any VIPs at TromaDance, they are the filmmakers whose blood, sweat, and hard work are on the screen.
TromaDance is an opportunity for everyone who’s ever picked up a camera to have their work seen without the compromises required by elitist cartel interference. TromaDance is proud to be the first and only film festival of the people, for the people, and by the people.
