Slamdance

Slamdance takes place annually in the beautiful ski resort town of Park City, Utah, down the street and at the same time as Sundance. Slamdance offers an intimate community experience in which audience members, filmmakers, festival programmers, and industry professionals all mingle in the same hallways and sit side by side in screening rooms to discover the next generation of cinema talent. The festival was founded in 1995.

The film festival focused on emerging artists and low-budget independent films. Slamdance committees have been able to stay close to its original DIY spirit and continue to champion the bleeding-edge of contemporary filmmaking.

The Slamdance accepts short films under 40 minutes. No distribution restrictions. Narrative, Documentary, and Animation categories are Academy Award® and BAFTA qualifying. Shorts that blur the lines between categories will be shared and considered by all appropriate programming committees.

In 2018, the festival received over 6100 submissions and programmed 95 films.


The dates: January 22-28, 2021.

The submission deadlines: July 13 | August 24 | October 2 | October 8 |
