2014 TromaDance Film Festival: Official Lineup
To mix things up for its 15th annual edition, the TromaDance film festival has moved! (Yet again.) This year, the grotesque festivities will take place on June 27-28 at The Paper Box art space in Brooklyn, NY and will include loads of short films and four features.
The features are: Drew Bolduc‘s hotly anticipated Science Team, the follow-up to his masterful exercise in offensiveness, The Taint; the acclaimed penile documentary The Final Member by Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math; Olivier Beguin’s new twist on vampirism, Chimeres; and the fighting cannibal action of Evil Feed by Ray Smith.
The short films include international offensiveness and gore from such far-flung places as Italy, Belgium, Estonia, Australia and, of course, the good ol’ U.S. of A.
