Slamdance seeks entries

Final submissions should be in by Nov. 10

The sixth Slamdance Film Festival has set submissions deadlines for its 2000 edition which runs Jan. 22-29. The early deadline close is Oct. 13 with final submissions set for Nov. 10.

Started as an alternative to the Sundance festival, the event runs parallel to its better known cousin in Park City, Utah. During its brief history it has struggled financially to endure and fought local resistance to operating in the ski community’s downtown. Organizers believed they would be forced to relocate and only recently secured approval to return to base camp at the Treasure Mountain Inn on Main Street.

Slamdance’s feature competition guidelines are limited to first-time directors with films that have yet to secure commercial distribution. However, it additionally accepts features and short films outside those strictures for its program. Submissions are open to productions on film, video and digital media. Winning films also receive prizes, in the form of cash and production services.

Some recent fest premieres which have gone on to enjoy theatrical release include “The Bible and Gun Club,” “Six-String Samurai,” “20 Dates” and last year’s Audience Award winner “Man of the Century’ which opens next month via Fine Line.

Slamdance applications are available be contacting the fest office at: (323) 466-1786 or can be obtained on-line at www.slamdance.com.
