For the past twenty years, Slamdance Film Festival has proudly been putting its bow-tie shaped stamp on the independent film community. Genuinely a festival by filmmakers for filmmakers, Slamdance’s unique selection process grants each submission an equal opportunity through a purely democratic procedure where the programmers are all filmmakers themselves. After 20 years Slamdance continues to be a vibrant, global resource for new and emerging filmmakers resulting in 7,500 submissions annually.

Sponsor benefits of the Slamdance Film Festival and its year-round events are robust. The festival is positioned amongst the media frenzy of Park City, UT in January, side by side with the Sundance Film Festival. Every year, over 100,000 people travel to the Salt Lake City area from around the world. Furthermore, the Slamdance On The Road events provide sponsor exposure in key North American markets.

Filmmakers who first showcased their work at Slamdance have generated over 11 billion dollars at the Box Office to date. Past participants include the future creators of The Dark Knight Trilogy, World War Z, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Horrible Bosses, Napoleon Dynamite, Superbad, Paranormal Activity, Beasts of the Southern Wild, the HBO series Girls, and many more!
