INNOVATIVE DISTRIBUTION PLAN BEGINS WITH A THEATRICAL LAUNCH AT THE PORTLAND FILM FESTIVAL ON SEPTEMBER 2nd, 2015
LOS ANGELES, CA
(August 14, 2015) – Slamdance
joins forces with the creators of The Resurrection of Jake the Snake
for the multi-city theatrical release of the 2015 Slamdance Film Festival favorite documentary beginning in Portland, Oregon on September 2nd. The Portland Film Festival
will host the film's release with a special event screening of the documentary and a Q&A session moderated by UFC
superstar Chael Sonnen
with Jake "The Snake" Roberts
, Diamond Dallas Page
and director Steve Yu
. The event format is a key element of the film's continuing theatrical release with personal appearances by Jake “The Snake” Roberts, filmmakers and special guests.
The theatrical release marks the initiation of Slamdance Presents
, a new distribution moniker for Slamdance's world premier programs dedicated to creating theatrical and other innovative commercial opportunities for independent filmmakers.
This year we welcome Bristol, UK's Rosie Lea
to the already impressive list of artists who have contributed to Slamdance including Shepard Fairey
, Kii Arens
and David Flores
Rosie is a graphic artist and writer who has done gig posters for Queens Of The Stone Age
, and L7
. You can find more of Rosie's work here www.birdbrains.club
and here rosie-lea.com
, and Jacknife Prints
This year's theme is Saints & Sinners
. With our showcase you're sure to get plenty of characters who are the best of the best, some who are the worst of the worst, and a whole bunch who are duplicitous surprises -- wolves in sheeps' clothing, snakes in the grass, smooth operators with well-concealed daggers, &c.
The new artwork is a playfully proto-interactive way to decide whether you're good, bad, or both at the same time. Looking one way, you see an Angel. Looking the other way, a demon. Depending on how you see the image, or with one a quick turn, you'll go from saint to sinner and then back again.
Submissions open for the 2016 Film Festival, Slamdance Alumni returns for Manager Position, and programs expand through Slamdance Cinema Club, Slamdance Studios on HULU, and beyond.
(LOS ANGELES, CA---May 29, 2015) Following last year's record breaking submission numbers, Slamdance Film Festival
is now open for 2016 entries with a new program called DIG
and the return of alumni Clementine Leger
as festival manager. At the same time, the organization's distribution arm Slamdance Studios
, is showing major year-round growth for its online and live event enterprises. This month, Slamdance Studios
premieres Slam Collective’s I Want To Be an American
based on the exquisite corpse parlor game, and the wildly successful ArcLight Presents Slamdance Cinema Club
screens Pavan Moondi's & Brian Robertson's Diamond Tongues
and Chris Furbee's Huntington's Dance.
(LOS ANGELES - May 4, 2015) Slamdance DIG
(short for Digital, Interactive & Gaming) is a new program from the Slamdance Film Festival dedicated to emerging independent artists working in new, hybrid and immersive forms of digital media art.
If your work pushes, breaks, or defies the boundaries of storytelling through digital media in any way, we would like to see it. We are primarily interested in a diversity of form and content. If you think your work fits, it likely does.
Artists are encouraged to submit either works in progress or completed projects for consideration. From these submissions, judges will program a showcase that will open in Los Angeles, California in 2015. Selected final works will also have the opportunity to exhibit at the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Submissions are free and open to the public.
