TOXIE & TROMA TEAM Guerrilla Performance Union Sq, NYC 3pm, Thursday May 21st

Secret Video Leaked

Lloyd Kaufman apologizes for the leaking of the secret video announcing a performance-rally this Thursday, May 21st, 3 pm, at Union Square, New York, NY.  Mr. Kaufman stated “We don’t want to even mention that  this  Union Square event is to raise awareness of the  Return to Nuke’Em High: Volume 2 Kickstarter campaign. That would be crass, bourgeois and capitalistic.” However the Toxic Avenger  and the World famous Tromettes in small clothing have been  confirmed.

FrightPix Presents: TROMADANCE 2015 The Paper Box, NYC July 23-24!

The Troma Team is proud to announce that the 16th ALL FREE Tromadance Film Festival will take place on July 23 and 24, 2015, at The Paper Box in Brooklyn, NY. As they have for 16 years, true cinephiles can shed their stressful workaday troubles and celebrate, en masse, the wonder that is genuine independent cinema!

The Toxic Avenger polishes his garments for Tromadance’s night premiere.

According to Wikipedia “The idea for TromaDance was developed by Troma president Lloyd Kaufman, who got the idea from South Park co-creator Trey Parker (whose debut film, Cannibal! The Musical, was distributed by Troma). Feeling that Sundance had become too “Hollywood” by charging film-makers high fees to entry his movies, showing multi-million-dollar “independent” movies and practicing an elitist structure and film selection process, Parker urged Kaufman to create his own film festival that was the direct independent opposite of Sundance, one that was completely FREE! and focused on independently produced film that was made without the Hollywood system in order to give first-time filmmakers a chance at getting their work seen.

STAN LEE, RON JEREMY added to “Occupy Cannes” Project has evolved into More Ambitious Film

Changes title to “Sincerely the Troma Team: Occupy Cannes”

‘Occupy Cannes’ has changed its working title to ‘Sincerely the Troma Team: Occupy Cannes’. This film, which originally focused specifically on Troma’s latest trip to Cannes, has evolved into a more ambitious project. Troma at the Cannes film festival still plays centrally, but the documentary also looks at the bigger “ecosystem” of Troma, Lloyd Kaufman, and independent film. The news arrived on Indiegogo today in an update to the project’s page.

Stan Lee, creator of Spiderman, discusses the state of independent superheroes, in Sincerely The Troma Team: Occupy Cannes.

“The symbiotic relationship Lloyd and Troma has with his fans and supporters is one of the most compelling themes in the film,” says the update. Living legends Stan Lee and Ron Jeremy were recently interviewed and have pretty interesting things to say about independent filmmaking and their own relation with Troma and the Troma Team.

Ron Jeremy discusses his last 20 years of independent film at Troma  in Sincerely The Troma Team: Occupy Cannes.
