It was revealed that Slamdance has set its special screenings program along with the launch of its Slam Collective collaboration program. Slamdance, launched 18 years ago as an alternative to Sundance, has alrady unveiled its competition lineup with 10 narrative films and eight documentaries — including 13 world premieres. The fest will take place Jan. 20-26 in Park City, Utah, at the Treasure Mountain Inn.
In addition to Jug Head, the fest will also premiere Ben Peyser and Scott Rutherford’s Ghost Team One, which we now have the official image gallery for. Starring Carlos Santos, Fernanda Romero, J.R. Villarreal, Meghan Folcone, Tony Cavalero, James Babson, Scott MacArthur, and Craig Stott, it’s a subversive, comedic take on the found footage genre wherein two roommates deathly afraid of ghosts both fall in love with a girl who believes their home is haunted.
“In order to impress a girl, two roommates set out to make a documentary about a murder that took place in their house decades ago. The girl thinks that the victim’s ghost still resides there, and the two guys think that making a movie with her will get them laid. But after setting cameras up around the house, the legitimately supernatural occurrences that follow make it apparent that the ghost is not only real, but that she’s a vengeful Vietnamese madame from the 1930’s that’s become smitten with our guys.”
