The 2019 Film Festival Planner.
Slide Nr 2
January: Slamdance (Parck City, Utah, USA) – Held every year since 1995, this edgier alternative to the Sundance Film Festival has provided a platform for independent young talent to thrive, evolve and, most importantly, get noticed. Famous names to have first gained notoriety at the festival include Christopher Nolan, Lena Dunham and Marc Forster; as well as films such as Paranormal Activity and The King of Kong. Considered an avenue for more outlandish or low-budget fare to thrive (with no competition film costing more than $1 million), more than two decades on, the festival continues to provide an anarchic escape for Park City dwellers who tire of the corporate nature of the festival’s larger equivalent.
