TromaDance Detroit 2015!

TromaDance Detroit is the only truly independent film festival in Michigan that doesn’t charge an entry fee for filmmakers or admission fee for people to attend! TromaDance Detroit is the only festival of the people, for the people, and by the people!

TromaDance Detroit doesn’t just bring you crazy and bizarre film on the Tangent Gallery’s large, silver screen; we put you in the art with a gallery, vendors and performance art from some of Detroit’s finest artists who embody the independent spirit. The festival will take place on June 27th at the Tangent Gallery in Detroit and is guest hosted this year by Brad Jones, a.k.a. The Cinema Snob, who is internet famous for his video reviews of cult and exploitation films.

Featuring over 10 hours of programming, the festival includes two feature films, two blocks of short films, burlesque from Sadie Sparkles, music from Hearse For Hire, “torture juggling” from Nathan Wakefield and more to be announced! This will no doubt be TromaDance Detroit’s best festival yet!
