The festival will begin at the ShowRoom (708 Cookman Ave) on Friday, April 16 at 10:00 PM with a TromaDance fundraiser screening / New Jersey premiere of Lloyd Kaufman’s POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD, which Ain’t It Cool News hailed as “a masterpiece!” and The New York Times described as “a grindhouse analogue to the psychosexual provocations of the artist Paul McCarthy and is every bit as liberating.” Following the screening will be a Q&A with Kaufman. The official selections will continue through April 17th at the ShowRoom, and the festival will wrap with the now-legendary TromaDance After-Party at the historic Asbury Lanes (209 4th Avenue) featuring this year, for the first time, independent bowling!
Lloyd Kaufman, founder of the TromaDance Film Festival, stated, “Although I was not on the selection committee, I can say that this is the best lineup of films that TromaDance has presented in its entire 11 year history.”
Inspired by Trey Parker and founded in 2000 by Kaufman, TromaDance is the first film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and fans. Unlike every other film festival, TromaDance does not charge filmmakers a fee to submit their films. Entrance to all screenings is free and open to the public. There are no VIP reservations and no preferential treatment of any kind is given regarding admission to films, panels, or parties. The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially when it comes to new filmmakers. Art, in all its forms, is for the people!
Funding for TromaDance comes entirely from donations. The festival relies on the generosity of those who believe in its cause. Donations can be submitted online via PayPal, and tax-deductible donations of $100 or more can be submitted online via Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts services organization.
