2010 TromaDance: Move To New Jersey And Extended Deadline

It’s the only state toxic enough, really, to hold the illustrious TromaDance Film Festival: New Jersey. For its 11th edition, the venerable fest hosted by Lloyd Kaufman‘s Troma Entertainment will be moving to the Garden State after a decade of terrorizing audiences in Park City.

Instead of being held simultaneously along with Sundance and Slamdance, TromaDance will run in 2010 on April 17 at the ShowRoom indie film theater and the Asbury Lanes bowling alley in Asbury Park, NJ. The move was officially announced back in December, so this isn’t particularly new news.

The new-er part of this story is that the fest has extended its final deadline until March 20, so there’s still time to get your film in if you’re interested in submitting. As for what kinds of films they’re looking for, well, it’s Troma, which has a reputation that totally precedes itself. To get a feel of what they screen, though, check out last year’s schedule, which is downloadable from the TromaDance site.

The nice thing though is that TromaDance is sticking with the tradition of not accepting entry fees from filmmakers, so it’s free to send your film in if you’re interested.

The 11th annual TromaDance will feature film screenings and the famous TromaDance Panel Discussion at the ShowRoom. Then, the action will move to Asbury Lanes for live music performances and, a first for the fest, independent bowling. That’s right, you can throw some heavy balls around alongside the Toxic Avenger, Sgt. Kabukiman and the legendary Tromettes.

For full details, please visit the official TromaDance website. And, below, is a short PSA video for the fest, followed by scenes from TromaDances past.
