From the Tromadance Press release:
Summer TromaDance Film Festival in The MidWest
Tromadance Founder Lloyd Kaufman and The B Movie Celebration announced the creation of a new expanded summer version of the Tromadance Film Festival in Franklin, Indiana, at this year's American Film Market last November.
This announcement included details on the transformation of the Tromadance Film Festival into a fully immersive film experience that now includes a larger screening schedule as well as more panel discussions and in-depth
workshops covering a variety of topics pertinent to young filmmakers.
Summer TromaDance takes place during the B Movie Celebration September 26th-28th in Franklin Indiana.
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.
For The People and By The People
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.
TromaDance is being held at The Juke Box Live and The Franklin Public Library
