The Troma Team is proud to announce that the 16th ALL FREE Tromadance Film Festival will take place on July 24 and 25, 2015, at The Paper Box in Brooklyn, NY. As they have for 16 years, true cinephiles can shed their stressful workaday troubles and celebrate, en masse, the wonder that is genuine independent cinema!

According to Wikipedia “The idea for TromaDance was developed by Troma president Lloyd Kaufman, who got the idea from South Park co-creator Trey Parker (whose debut film, Cannibal! The Musical, was distributed by Troma). Feeling that Sundance had become too “Hollywood” by charging film-makers high fees to entry his movies, showing multi-million-dollar “independent” movies and practicing an elitist structure and film selection process, Parker urged Kaufman to create his own film festival that was the direct independent opposite of Sundance, one that was completely FREE! and focused on independently produced film that was made without the Hollywood system in order to give first-time filmmakers a chance at getting their work seen.

Troma’s annual two day film festival, Tromadance, has grown into an event that filmmakers and fans come from all over this big blue marble to attend. Since its early beginnings as a DIY grassroots alternative in Park City, Utah, TromaDance has never charged filmmakers to submit their work. All TromaDance screenings are free of charge. With the festival’s strict “No VIP Policy”, celebrities and fans are treated equally, including admission to the now legendary closing party.

Last June, TromaDance made the jump from Asbury Park, New Jersey to landmark The Paper Box in Brooklyn, NY. It was by far the most successful year in the festival’s history. Both days saw The Paper Box packed to capacity from open to close and on into the night. The Brooklyn Vegan dubbed the Tromadance Afterparty: “The weirdest and best show Williamsburg has seen in a long while.” Now, in 2015, Tromadance is poised to surpass last year’s success but still keep the spotlight on independent filmmaking across the globe.
