Submissions Open For Slamdance 2025

Lights, camera, action! Submissions are officially open for Slamdance, set to take place from February 20-26, 2025.

Slamdance Moves To Los Angeles

In exciting turn of events, Slamdance is making a permanent move to the heart of cinematic magic (and our homebase) – Los Angeles. The festival is taking up residence across multiple venues, including the iconic Landmark Sunset 5 and the prestigious DGA Theater Complex, with more locations to come.

Can’t make it to LA? Slamdance is bringing the festival experience to you with a virtual platform accessible to everyone through the Slamdance Channel, their artist-curated streaming platform.


Slamdance isn’t just about exclusive red carpet premieres; it prioritizes accessibility and opens doors for filmmakers whose voices deserve to be heard. That’s why they offer financially accessible ticket prices, with in-person passes starting at just $50, and many programs are free to the public.

How To Submit

The Slamdance Film Festival accepts films in every genre from all corners of the world. Submissions are now open and will be through regular deadline August 12, 2024. Go to their website for additional deadline dates.

When to Buy Tickets

While tickets are not available yet, Slamdance announced on their Instagram tickets will likely be released later this year. So keep an eye out on their social media as they regularly post updates.

As always Freestyle Digital Media will be attending Slamdance and we can’t wait to see all of the submissions!
