TromaDance is the first film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and fans. Unlike every other film festival, TromaDance does not charge filmmakers to submit their films. Entrance to all screenings is free and open to the public. Also, there are no VIP reservations or preferential treatment regarding films, panels, or parties of any kind given.  The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially when it comes to new filmmakers.  Art – in all its forms – is for the people!   Tromadance was created in 1999 by Troma President and Creator of the Toxic Avenger, Lloyd Kaufman, based on an idea from South Park creator Trey Parker.
