Our Largest & Most Accessible Festival Yet

Running February 12-25, 2021, our virtual festival experience brings everything Slamdance has to offer to a global online audience on slamdance.com, Apple TV, Roku, Firestick, and YouTube. Our 2021 program consists of 25 features along with 107 shorts and episodics for the 27th edition of the festival, a number that equals previous editions of the festival. This includes a new program titled Unstoppable, a showcase for creators with disabilities. In addition to a vibrant virtual experience, there will be a two-night drive-in presentation in Joshua Tree open to the public on February 13th and 14th as well as the closing night screening at a Los Angeles drive-in on February 25.

The online showcase includes short and feature film programs, filmmaker Q&A's, jury and audience awards presentations, workshops and panels with notable alumni and Unstoppable, Slamdance's first program for filmmakers with disabilities.


Community is, and has always been, at the heart of why Slamdance works. Though the accessibility of taking the 2021 Slamdance Film Festival online means we now have the exciting potential to reach a wider audience than ever before, in the true spirit of Slamdance, we still aim to make every attendee feel like they are part of a special, intimate experience. Attendees will not only have access to an excellent lineup of groundbreaking new films, they also get a front-row seat to witnessing the powerful artist community that Slamdance fosters. We invite you to take part.
