“House Of The Devil” Director Ti West Joins TromaDance Panel!posted in News |
We are pleased to announce that filmmaker Ti West will join James Gunn, Tony Timpone, Roy Frumkes and Katha Cato on the panel at the 13th Annual TromaDance Film Festival, the only truly independent film festival that is completely FREE! The panel will be moderated by President of Troma and creator of The Toxic Avenger Lloyd Kaufman.
Ti West is best known as the writer and director of House of the Devil (2009), The Innkeepers (2011) and a segment of upcoming horror anthology V/H/S. This year the panel discussion will be extended to 90 minutes to accommodate all the talent and wisdom our guests have to impart on promoting and distributing movies, both historically and currently.
Two feature films have been selected to screen – the first, The FP, tells the story of two gangs locked in a turf war in rural wasteland FrasierPark, in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game Beat-Beat Revolution. The FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphant montages and neon street wear. Also screening is Manborg, in which a soldier, brought back to life as a cyborg, fights alongside a band of adventurers against demon hordes in a dystopian future. These will screen along with thirty-six films already announced.
TromaDance will be held at Asbury Lanes in historic Asbury Park, New Jersey on May 4th and 5th. All TromaDance screenings are free and with the festival’s “No VIP Policy”, celebrities and fans are treated equally. Unlike mainstream, elitist festivals like Cannes and Sundance, TromaDance does not charge film makers anything to submit their films. As is the tradition, part of the TromaDance 2012 budget is funded by fans. This year the festival is being partially crowd-funded through Kickstarter, and the campaign has raised over $5000.
