Slamdance Unveils '07 Shorts Line up

The Slamdance Film Festival has selected 73 shorts selected to screen at this year's festival in Park City, UT, each of which is now in competition and eligible for a Grand Jury Award. There has been a "dramatic increase" in international submissions, according to the festival, particularly a "marked rise" in Spanish-language short films. There are six categories of short films at Slamdance: Competition Shorts before features, which screen before "like-minded narratives" in competition; Competition Shorts Gallery, which are six one-hour short film programs; Documentary Shorts Competition, which screen before documentaries in competition; Animation Competition; the 2006 Anarchy Online Finalists, which include live-action, documentary and animation shorts; and $99 Specials, which are designed "to keep the spirit of short filmmaking alive." Slamdance has also developed its Anarchy Online Film Competition in 2000. Each month, from March through November, three short films (10 minutes or under) are selected to play online at www.slamdance.com/anarchy, and is open to all types of films. The winner is determined by site visitors via online voting, and each month's winner screens at Slamdance. The Slamdance Film Festival will run concurrently with the Sundance Film Festival, January 18-27, 2007. To view the full list of this year's shorts line up, visit the Slamdance Film Festival's website. [Brian Brooks]
