The Slamdance Film Festival announced its program for the 2011 edition Tuesday morning.
The 17th annual fest, which takes place in Park City, Utah, simultaneous to the Sundance Film Festival, will screen 10 narrative films and eight documentary features in competition from Jan. 21-27. Fourteen of the movies are world premieres. As part of this year’s festival theme — “All Is Not Lost” — Slamdance will donate ten% of ticket proceeds back to the filmmakers.
“The quality and breadth of independent film has increased exponentially over the past few years,” said Slamdance president and co-founder Peter Baxter. “However, even as audience dissatisfaction with the standard studio fare grows, independent film continues to be squeezed out at the box office. Slamdance to the rescue!”
