Troma Entertainment is pleased to announce that it has launched an Indiegogo.com for a provocative, idealistic, and very entertaining documentary to be filmed at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival about the struggle by independent artists against the mega-media-conglomerates, entitled, Occupy Cannes. Incentives for contributors include a chance to fly to Cannes and join the famous Troma Street Team, full-screen producer credit on the documentary, a photo book exclusive to the campaign, props from Troma’s event film Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. I & II, lunch with Troma president Lloyd Kaufman on the French Riviera, advance copies of Return to Nuke ‘Em High, autographed Tromabilia, and much, much more.
Occupy Cannes will explore the Cannes Film Festival from the inside out. The documentary will use Troma’s latest production, Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. I & II, as its centerpiece as cameras follow the Troma Team at Cannes as they try to sell and promote the film. Occupy Cannes will be a follow-up to Troma’s acclaimed 2002 documentary All the Love You Cannes, and a “poke in the eye to media elites who have hijacked Cannes.”

“Troma is unique in many ways,” says Troma president Lloyd Kaufman. “We are the only film studio that has been in the industry for this long and is using crowd-sourcing and social networking in this manner. All the other studios want to be Spielberg, Jackson or Michael Bay and make a lot of money. We make ‘movies of the future’ and that’s why our fans and the public have helped us in so many ways for almost 40 years.”
