Park City, Utah

 

What’s It All About?

The Slamdance Film Festival (SFF), founded in 1995 to recognise independent and DIY talent in films, takes place every January in the stunning, snow-capped mountains of Park City, Utah, exactly at the same time as the Sundance Film Festival, to provide a more authentic representation of independent filmmaking. The festival fosters the development of unique and innovative filmmakers. Every year, the festival is organised by filmmakers who have won the previous year’s competition. The notable alumni recognised by the festival include Christopher Nolan, Lena Dunham and Oren Peli. Apart from the film festival, the organisation also consists of Screenplay Competition and Slamdance Studios.

 

Watch Out For!

The 2015 edition of SFF will feature 20 independent films from around the globe, including 12 narrative features and eight documentaries, including three North American premieres and a US premiere. Every shortlisted feature film represents a directorial debut produced with a budget of less than $1 million. This year, the Slamdance Film Festival has added a new component that will integrate digital, interactive and gaming work. This segment is dedicated to emerging independent artistes who are working in hybrid, immersive and developing forms of digital media art.
