Have no fear if your film didn’t make it into one of the three major Dances (Sundance, Slamdance, Nodance) because every year, several fringe festivals are set up in Park City to stick it to the man and ultimately allow more voices to be heard and other visions to be seen.
On the fringe this year are Tromadance, Schmoozedance, Shedance (a festival set up exclusively for women filmmakers), the Backseat Film Festival and now we’ve just come across roaDANCE.
Taking place January 16-26, roaDANCE is Park City’s portable film festival with filmmaker submitted shorts being screened on a 14 foot cube truck with a digital projector, a tape deck, a diesel generator and a rear projection screen. For ten nights (6pm – 3am) the roaDANCE truck will cruise up and down Main Street, making stops at every theatre venue, presenting eye candy for those waiting in line for other festival screenings.
Also, roaDANCE is perhaps the only Park City film festival that is still accepting entries. So if you have a film that’s under five minutes, send it to roaDANCE and it’ll wind up receiving more exposure than most of the other films playing at other festivals.
