Slamdance Film Festival
by Slamdance Film Festival
(Park City, Utah USA)
Born out of rejection, Slamdance showcases new and emerging independent artists, filmmakers and storytellers. We welcome films in every genre, on any topic from every country around the world. The festival program is selected from 100% blind submissions and we do not disqualify any films based on premiere status or date of completion.
As a year-round organization, Slamdance is dedicated to the nurturing and development of new independent artists and their vision.
Slamdance Film Festival runs concurrently with the Sundance Film Festival every January. Slamdance lives by its mantra: "By Filmmakers, For Filmmakers." No other festival is fully programmed by filmmakers. Slamdance counts among its alumni many notable writers and directors who first gained notice at the festival, including Christopher Nolan, Marc Forster, Jared Hess and Oren Peli. In 2010, Slamdance began a video on demand partnership with Microsoft and will continue to expand its exhibition efforts in 2011 both theatrically and online. New filmmakers and writers today realize Slamdance is a great place to launch their careers.
For the 2011 Festival, Slamdance received a record number of over 5,000 submissions.
