Tromadance Starts Fundraising Campaign11 Feb, 2011 By: Billy Gil
Troma Entertainment has started a fundraiser to keep its Tromadance Film Festival (April 22 to 23, Asbury Park, N.J.) free, with such prizes as DVDs.
Troma has started a Kickstarter page (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/852899646/the-12th-annual-tromadance-film-festival) to raise funds for the festival. Rewards also will include T-shirts, posters, free passes to parties, getting a donor’s name in the Tromadance festival program and lunch with Lloyd Kaufman, Troma Entertainment president, The Toxic Avenger creator and the Tromadance Film Festival founder.
Tromadance was inspired by “South Park’s” Trey Parker and founded by Kaufman as an alternative to the Hollywood film festivals such as Sundance. Tromadance offers free submissions for filmmakers, as well as free screenings. Last year’s 11th annual Tromadance featured the North American premiere of gross-out hit The Human Centipede.
