TromaDance Detroit, Michigan's only free independent film festival is coming to the Tangent Gallery on June 22.

"Congratulations to Mike Hartman and all the TromaDance Detroit volunteers for spreading the TromaDance message that art should be shared," said Lloyd Kaufman, president of Troma Entertainment and creator of TromaDance, now in its 14th year. The movement continues with TromaDance Film Festivals in New Mexico, Canada, the UK, and now Detroit.

TromaDance is the first film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and fans. There is no fee for filmmakers to submit a film. Entrance to all screenings is free and open to the public. Films, panels, and parties are open to one and all. The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially the work of new filmmakers. Art, in all its forms, is for the people!

Founded by Michigan filmmakers, Mike Hartman, president of Silver Bullet Pictures and Terence Cover, TromaDance Detroit offers a full day of incredible independent cinema, art, and performance from around the world. 

Highlights from the festival include the feature length films Problem Solving the Republic and I.B.S. TromaDance Detroit will feature a gallery of 2D and 3D art by local artists, and a performance schedule that includes burlesque and trapeze artists, comedians, and an after party featuring Apocalypse Theatre.
