Slamdance, Park City's Other Film Fest, Will Take a Road Trip to Texas
Slamdance, Park City's other film festival, is headed to Austin, TX next month with their “On The Road” series which brings popular Slamdance films and filmmakers to audiences that might not be able to catch them otherwise.
On March 2, Slamdance will showcase 2013 Grand Jury award winners Bible Quiz (Best Documentary) and The Dirties (Best Feature Narrative) along with the Texas made shorts, Hearts of Napalm and Winkelmann, TX. Following the screening of The Dirties, there will be a “Coffee With..” talk with director Matt Johnson and producer Matt Miller.
“Slamdance has a proven track record of unearthing great films; yet the commercial challenges many of our alumni face post festival acclaim are harder than ever," Slamdance President and Co-Founder Peter Baxter explained. "This means we are compelled to develop a theatrical program beyond the festival as well as driven to help filmmakers find popular audiences. The standard of Slamdance films, like The Dirties and Bible Quiz, deserve this much and we believe audiences will respond.”
Slamdance "On The Road" tickets can be purchased at austintheatre.org for $13.
