Best of Slamdance 2009
Monday, March 16 - Tuesday, March 31, 2009
“Best of Slamdance 2009,” a showcase of the top award-winners from this year’s Slamdance Film festival, will screen on Monday, March 2, 16 and 30 at IFC Center. Filmmakers and Slamdance programmers will be on hand for Q&As at each screening.
Started in 1995 by a group of filmmakers, Slamdance is organized and programmed “by filmmakers for filmmakers.” Having just completed its 15th year, Slamdance enjoys a well-established reputation for premiering independent films by first-time directors and for nurturing the development of new filmmakers and their visions. The next Slamdance takes place in Park City, Utah, in late January 2010. “The Best of Slamdance 2009” marks IFC Center’s seventh collaboration with the festival, following presentations of 2007 and 2008 festival award winners, a documentary showcase, and three seasons of IFC Center’s “Short Attention Span Cinema” program featuring Slamdance shorts.
