1. The Selection Process

Selections for the TromaDance Detroit Film Festival are judged by an official selection committee brought together specifically for this purpose. Films are judged based on artistic merit and originality. Your film need not include sex and violence!

TromaDance receives hundreds to thousands of entries every year, so unfortunately, due to the number of entries received, we cannot communicate with filmmakers as to the status of their film. If your film is selected for TromaDance, we will contact you using the information provided on the official entry form.

2. Official Rules

Deadline - All submissions must be received no later than Midnight, July 25th, 2016. There is no cost for entry, but we do accept $1 donations!

Format - Although the film may be shot in any manner you feel necessary, the submission must be on PAL DVD, Region 1 DVD, All Region DVD, or Blu-Ray. You may submit more than one film. Please use separate DVDs or Blu-Rays and entry forms for each title.

Film Information - Please feel free to include any kind of publicity material or information regarding the film along with your submission. Films accepted to the festival will be asked to submit a photo (or photos) and link for an online trailer or equivalent for use on the Tromadance Detroit website.

Judging - All entries will be judged by the Tromadance Detroit Selection Committee - which is comprised of most of the organizers of the event and 10 fans of Tromadance Detroit.

Notification - If you are selected, you will be contacted, either by phone, mail or e-mail.
