The 12th Annual TromaDance Film Festival is returning to Asbury Park New Jersey, on April 22 – 23, 2011 at the Showroom Theater, located at 708 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ 07712. Following the TromaDance Film Festival is the now legendary closing party at the legendary Asbury Lanes, located at 209 4th Avenue, also in Asbury Park. The TromaDance Film Festival has a policy of no entry fee for films.
TromaDance is a fiercely independent film festival that gives innovative up and coming film makers a chance for exposure like no other. The films screened are described as so unique, that no major studio could ever hope to create them. Attending screenings and panels isn’t about having an agent or big name connections, since all panels and screenings are open to a first come first serve basis, with no preferential treatment.
The TromaDance film festival was conceived by Troma chief Lloyd Kaufman and inspired by Cannibal the Musical and South Park co-creator Trey Parker. Deciding that the mainstream film festivals had become bloated and corrupt playgrounds for the Hollywood elite, the TromaDance Film Festival began in 2000 in Park City Utah, as “the conscience of the Sundance Film Festival”.
