Horror! Comedy! Suspense! Music! Science!! The 15th Annual TromaDance Film Festival had everything the most rabid cinephile, pickiest independent film connoisseur, or die hard Troma fan could ask for. In spades. What it had most though was support from across the world over for truly independent art!
The Paper Box, a New York city art compound, hosted the two day festival allowing attendees ample space to enjoy the films as well as the creative atmosphere in which they could roam and network. Sgt. KabukiM’am NYPD and one festival-goer enjoy the beautiful New York weather outside in the courtyard of the Paper Box.
With TromaDance being the festival that premiered films like Human Centipede and the Taint, this year’s films had a lot to live up to and they did not disappoint. Drew Bolduc’s Science Team received a standing ovation and Troma fans ate up PopcornFlix’s Evil Feed. Director Chrzu came all the way from Finland for the World Premiere of his film “NightSatan & the Loops of Doom” and we’re sure the crowd’s reaction made the many miles he traveled all worth it.
NewGrounds.Com animator Emily Youcis got up close and personal with TromaDance attendees participating in an interactive Q & A session moderated by Master of Ceremonies, Lloyd Kaufman after giving an exclusive sneak peak at her upcoming Alfred Alfer feature film.
The Netherlands, Mannequin Pussy, Dawn of Humans, and Hellbent Hooker (pictured below) unleashed alcohol soaked, New York City Rock n’ Roll war-dances all over the TromaDance stage in front of a full capacity crowd. Literally. The Troma merch tables had to be put away to fit any more people into the building!
