This just in...

A buddy of mine just sent me this and asked if I would post it. It looks fun so follow the links and check it out of you're interested. The folks at The Indy Film Co-op are great!

New York, NY – 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.
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.

Part film festival, part educational symposium and part circus, the B Movie Celebration is an event unlike any other. Scores of classic B feature film films have been shown at the 2007 B Celebration, including Forbidden Planet, Night of The Living Dead and Death Race 2000. Guests at this year’s B Movie Celebration included Troma Studio founder Lloyd Kaufman, B Film Legend Jim Wynorski, Special Effects Guru Tom Savini and numerous other practitioners of the B Movie art form.

Talk later.
