More than 50 short films have been picked to screen at the 2005 Slamdance Film Festival next month. In announcing the short film roster for the upcoming fest organizers noted that this year marks the first time that the event will have a dedicated short film grand jury, and the event will present its first-ever animated jury award.

“Our 2005 short film slate is as eclectic, outstanding and original as festival audiences have come to except. This year’s shorts represent work from 11 countries,” said director of Programming/Filmmaker Relations Sarah Diamond. “We’re very excited that due to the acquisition of a second venue on Park City’s Main Street, we’ve been able to double the number of screenings for each film.”

This year, Slamdance will again present $99 Specials, as well as the new On-The-Fly filmmaker program to create docs based on a word that is drawn out of hat. Organizers said in an announcement, “These programs are designed to expose the creative filmmaking element in all its raw glory once stripped of the luxuries of time and money.”
