Editorial Reviews

Giving Independent Film Back to the People!

Inspired by South Park creator Trey Parker, Tromadance is the first film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and film fans. Unlike every other film festival, Tromadance does not charge filmmakers to submit their films, nor charges an entry fee for public screenings or has special VIP reservations or preferential treatement regarding films, panels or parties of any kind given.

Tromadance features a range of films made independently, usually without big stars and big money, and far away from the Hollywood studio system. Tromadance selections have been made with passion, courage, integrity and raw talent.

In this third volume of the Best of Tromadance, viewers can sample fifteen of the best films from the 2003 and 2004 Tromadance Film Festivals, over three hours of the world’s finest truly independent films. Titles include Giuseppe Andrews’ Dribble, winner of the Tromadance/Kodak Independent Soul Award, Kevin Maher’s Monkey Brains, Kung-Fu Kitties and Marijuana’s Revenge, by the filmmaking team of Philip Gunn, Daniel Guiterrez and David Valdez, plus Matt and Greg Brookens’ Skunk Ape, Jamie Greco’s PDA Massacre and others.

All profits from the sales of all Best of Tromadance DVDs will help fund future Tromadance Film Festivals. Please help us keep this invaluable resource alive!

"With a tendency toward the offbeat, Tromadance is definitely the festival of the people." - Moviemaker Magazine.

I wrote a review a while ago about the TROMADANCE Vol. 2 DVD after attending the 2004 Tromadance Film Festival, and said I thought Vol. 3 might wind up being the best volume so far.

Well, I've watched it, and despite a few misses, it is indeed easily the most consistent and best Tromadance disc so far. Here's a film-by-film breakdown:

DRIBBLE -- Winner of the top award at the 2004 Tromadance, and rightly so. A crazy 30-minute short from Giuseppe Andrews, who played the funny deputy in CABIN FEVER and directed TRAILER TOWN, which Troma has also put out. This is very similar to TRAILER TOWN in that the cast is basically the same gaggle of trailer-park denizens, but this short is maybe better than TT because the outrageousness of Andrews's vulgar language does not have enough time to wear thin. Also, there are a few moments that seem unscripted that really show the down-and-dirty wit of these folks. The version shown in the festival had a funny use of music by people like Phil Collins and Winger, but the music has been replaced by original songs here (probably to avoid paying for the music), and it suffers a bit because of it.

PDA MASSACRE -- A nutty serial killer movie, with really great performances, especially from Troma stars Jamie Greco (as the killer) and Debbie Rochon (as one of her victims). However, the movie is kind of confusingly put together, and really uncomfortable to sit through.

KUNG-FU KITTIES -- A hilarious half-animated spoof of chopsocky movies and video games, using computer-deformed kitties as the opponents in a battle over a litter box.

THE INCREDIBLE TORTURE TRIO -- Kind of dopey gore comedy which features a bunch of guys mutilating themselves in very fake-looking ways.

TromaDance is a one-of-a-kind annual filmfestival, that began in 1999. It is totally unique in that it is not there to promote a lot of films and celebrities who don't really need that anymore, like the simultaneously running Sundance festival, but is of the people, for the people and by the people. The objective is to give art back to the people, and in order to do that there is no entrance fee, and no submittance fee for those who want to commit their film. Everybody is welcome, and fans and others interested in seeing new and innovative cinema are treated no worse than the filmmakers and celebrities (and believe me: there are celebrities around, as is shown on this particular DVD).
This is probably the only opportunity to have their work shown for new, original and innovative filmmakers who don't want to keep on going over the same old things that make Hollywood movies so boring and predictable.
A lot of short films from the festival are being released in a series of wonderfully mastered and lovingly created DVD's under the name of THE BEST OF TROMADANCE. Volume three is out now, and after the first two my anticipation was high - and it certainly didn't disappoint. This collection again proves that there are so many hitherto unknown filmmakers out there who commit all of their own money or even sell their house and devote their time making so incredibly many TOTALLY different and highly original films and hardly anyone knows about them! This disc brings some change in that.
