15th Annual TromaDance Breaks New Ground – NewGrounds.Com Animator Emily Youcis, New & Never-Before-Seen Films, New Raffle Prizes!

posted in News |

The final countdown has begun. Filmmakers and Fans alike will be arriving throughout the week from all over the world in preparation for the 15th Annual TromaDance Film Festival beginning this Friday night, June 27th at 5pm in Brooklyn, NY at the PaperBox.

With 38 short and 4 feature-length films to present, many of which will be premiering here first, TromaDance continues to break new ground. Speaking of which, NewGrounds.com animator Emily Youcis will be in attendance to Premiere the first look at her upcoming Alfred Alfer feature film as well as participate in a crowd interactive Q & A session. If you’re unfamiliar with the work of the quirky animator genius that is Emily Youcis, here is a quick introduction.

Not only will attendees have the opportunity to meet the filmmakers and special guests with TromaDance’s strict No VIP policy, they will also have the chance to win some exciting prizes. For every drink that festival-goers purchase they will receive a raffle ticket. Numbers will be drawn periodically throughout the weekend for Toxie-riffic DVD bundles and original, one-of-a-kind animation cels from the Fox-aired Toxic Crusaders cartoon series like the ones shown in this video.

And just announced, our sponsors Lomography will be donating two of their sleek, new cameras – the “Fisheye” and the “Sprocket Rocket” to be raffled off as well! We’ve never had a raffle this big before!

Nor has there been this solid of lineup of films from across the globe. With no submission fees to enter, filmmakers submitting online, and packages arriving at the Troma building from the opposite ends of the earth; the 15th Annual TromaDance has broken new highs with the amount of films submitted. It took time to go through them all (so much so that the Festival date needed to be changed from April to June) but we’ve chosen the best of the best. Even better than that, every last one of these films is completely FREE to come see. Check out the schedule below and don’t miss a second of truly great, truly independent cinema!

And make sure to join us at the Official TromaDance After Party featuring a barrage of New York City’s best high energy Rock acts including ‘Dawn of Humans’, ‘Hellbent Hooker’, ‘Mannequin Pussy’ and ‘Netherlands’.

Stay tuned to the Official TromaDance website and Troma Facebook page for more surprise announcements! Mark June 27th and 28th on your calendar and come celebrate this milestone year with us at the Paper Box in Brooklyn, NY for what will surely be a Tro-Mazing week-end of independent art!

The Paper Box is located at 17 Meadow St, New York, NY 11206

More About TromaDance

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.
