the nice version
Slamdance is the independent alternative to Sundance.
the 3-drinks-in version
Sundance is a marketing platform for sell out, studio filmmakers who pretend to be indie, Slamdance is a festival of discovery showcasing 1st time filmmakers that are DIY as fuck.
If you have a short film and want to screen in Park City @ Slamdance 2009, this link is the key to the back door.
Get. On. It.
