Call for Entries : Slamdance Film Festival




SLAMDANCE
FILM FESTIVALPark City, Utah - USA
January 20 to 26, 2017


The 23rd Annual Slamdance Film Festival , a community, a year-round experience, and a statement. Established in 1995 by a wild bunch of filmmakers who were tired of relying on a large, oblique system to showcase their work, Slamdance has proven, year after year, that when it comes to recognizing talent and launching careers, independent and grassroots communities can do it themselves. Slamdance accepts films of every genre from 100% blind submissions, which includes works-in-progress, from any country in a competitive range of categories.

Slamdance alums are responsible for the programming and organization of the following year's festival. With a variety of backgrounds, interests, and talents, and with no individual filmmaker's vote meaning more than another's, the Festival's programming and organizing committees have been able to stay close to the heart of low budget and do-it-yourself filmmaking. In this way, Slamdance continues to grow and exemplify its mantra: By Filmmakers, For Filmmakers. Director Brian Golden Davis (The Million Dollar Duck ) shares his experience, "Being a first-time filmmaker I knew that Slamdance would be the best festival to premiere at. Its small slate and supportive staff gave the film a great amount of attention leading up to a distribution deal with Lionsgate and Animal Planet hours after the first screening. It changed the life of our film and mine overnight!" Davis was proudly presented the 2016 Grand Jury Award and Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature.

Notable Slamdance alumni who first gained notice at the festival include: Christopher Nolan (Interstellar), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity), Marc Forster (World War Z), Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Lena Dunham (Girls), Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Anthony & Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin), Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), Lynn Shelton (Humpday) and Matt Johnson (Operation Avalanche). Box Office Mojo reports alumni who first showed their work at Slamdance have collectively earned over $11.5 billion at the Box Office to date.
