Shorts selected for Slamdance

67 films will compete in five categories

Sixty-seven shorts out of 2,000 submissions will compete for the Slamdance Grand Jury award.

The 67 were selected by Slamdance alumni for five film competition categories: Narrative Shorts, Gallery Shorts, Documentary Shorts, Animated Shorts and the Polish Shorts Block, which was programmed by the Slamdance Poland jury in Krakow.

Slamdance programmer Sarah Diamond noted that docs have a big presence this year. Among them are Thomas O’Keefe’s “B for Beekeeper” and Sam Kaufman’s pic on the public response to genocide, “Massacre at Murambi.”

Slamdance prexy Peter Baxter said, “Having a short screened at Slamdance is a great industry calling card, of sorts, especially now with all of the alternative viewing platforms that are available to help them capture an audience.”

The fest released two compilations of its shorts on DVD this year.

There are also two out-of-competition categories — Anarchy Online Finalists and $99 Specials, the latter of which are pics with $99 budgets given by the fest to Slamdance alums. The filmmakers had 99 days to deliver a five-minute movie.

Slamdance runs Jan 17-25.
