I've never heard of Slamdance either but what the hell

The director of the short film has asked me to post this. One of the prizes they're offering to winners is that they don't ever have to have any indirect or direct contact with me. Now that's a prize worth having.

Slamdance was one of the responses to Sundance, which quickly became big (at least medium big) business, while Slamdance wanted to be a bit more artisanal and/or DIY, punk subdivision. I forget the name of the fest that grew up around the films that couldn't get into Slamdance, which presumably were more grungesque.

Ed, don't be so malleable!

Yes! What Clark said! :)

On the other hand, I've recently learned that malleability has its good points, too.
