Tromadance Film Festival has set up a Kickstarter to raise money for it’s 13th year! Click Here To Go to Kickstarter!  Tromadance needs your help in supporting the only truly independent film festival that is completely FREE.  Unlike mainstream, elitist festivals like Cannes and Sundance, TromaDance does not charge film makers anything to submit their films. All TromanDance screenings are free and everyone, celebrities and fans, are treated equally.  No VIP policy! TromaDance screens films from all around the world and represents the best in independent cinema.  The 13th edition will be held in historic Asbury Park, New Jersey on May 4th and 5th at Asbury Lanes.  In the past, TromaDance has presented the North American premiere of The Human Centipede, as well as The Taint, and Kidnapped, among others. The festival also hosts discussion panels with independent film makers that share their wisdom and secrets to success with the audience.  Past guests include Oscar Nominated Actress Karen Black, Jenna Fischer, Ghost Rider Producer Steven Paul, Adam Rifkin, House of the Devil Producer Larry Fessenden, IFTA CEO Jean Pruitt, and Oscar Nominated animator Bill Plympton.  Those individuals who choose to donate on Kickstarter are entitled to exclusive gifts which include everything from signed collectible posters, DVDs, or even a round of bowling with TromaDance founder, Lloyd Kaufman.  Check out the TromaDance Kickstarter page for specific donation information and help keep the festival alive! 

Founded in 1999 by Lloyd Kaufman (President of Troma Entertainment and Creator of The Toxic Avenger) and inspired by Trey Parker (SouthPark), whose first film “Cannibal:The Musical!” was a Troma release. TromaDance enjoyed ten successful years in Park City, Utah.  In 2010,TromaDance was brought back home to New Jersey, home of Tromaville and The Toxic Avenger.  The response TromaDance received from the people of Asbury Park and the media was overwhelmingly positive.  Please visit  for photos, press, and other information about Tromadance 2011 and how to submit a film, or donate to Tromadance 2012.
