The Slamdance Film Festival was launched in 1995 and has been held yearly in January in Park City, Utah. Film festival fans have noticed the coincidence of the dates – the Sundance Film Festival is held at exactly the same time, which is not by accident, as this festival is about giving stronger support to authentic filmmaking.
The Slamdance Film Festival has gained an international reputation mainly due to the strong commitment to the independent cinema, new and up-and-coming filmmakers, actors, directors, producers, and many others from independent film industry. Following the motto “By Filmmakers for Filmmakers,” the festival is fully determined to support, as stated on the official website, “self-governance amongst independents”.
You don’t always have to choose one festival at a time. In this case, life can treat you with two great film festivals at the same time, giving you an opportunity to enjoy art at its best while immersed in snowy adventures in the resort of Park City, Utah. A lot to be excited about if you are travelling to Utah at this time of the year.
