NewGrounds.com's Emily Youcis and NY sketch comedy troupe Murderfist join 15th Annual TromaDance Film Festival!


In addition to blocks and blocks of great films TromaDance will also have some fantastic guests like NewGrounds.com animator, Emily Youcis and NY sketch comedy group, Murderfist! 


Emily Youcis first taught herself how to animate when she was 11 by kneeling in front of the VCR and pressing pause throughout entire animated films for hours.  She has developed a large cult following over the years based largely on the animated shorts featuring the misadventures of her character "Alfred Alfer," the psychotic dog. Emily will be in attendance to present a first look at her upcoming full-length "Alfred Alfer" feature film as well as participate in a crowd-interactive Q & A.

Described as "the Marx Brothers covered in blood and on Acid," Murderfist has quickly gained a reputation for their outrageous live show and their diabolically hysterical YouTube videos. Winners of the ECNY Award for Best Sketch Comedy Group and the Village Voice Best of Award for Best Sketch Comedy Group, this New York collective has recorded a series of TromaDance promotional videos that has already been circulating and garnering loads of attention. Murderfist unleashes their raucous live act at the 15th Annual Tromadance!

More About TromaDance


TromaDance is the first film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and fans. Unlike every other film festival, TromaDance does not charge filmmakers to submit their films. Entrance to all screenings is free and open to the public. Also, there are no VIP reservations or preferential treatment regarding films, panels, or parties of any kind given. The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially when it comes to new filmmakers. Art - in all its forms - is for the people!


TromaDance features a range of films made independently, usually without big stars, big money and far removed from the Hollywood studio system. The official selections of TromaDance have been made with nothing more than passion, courage, integrity, and raw talent.


Everyone at TromaDance is treated as an equal. The elite and the celebrated are treated no better or worse than the experimental filmmaker or the random moviegoer off the street. Admittance to all screenings, panels, parties, and events is strictly on a first come, first served basis. If there are any VIPs at TromaDance, they are the filmmakers whose blood, sweat, and hard work are on the screen.


TromaDance is an opportunity for everyone who's ever picked up a camera to have their work seen without the compromises required by elitist cartel interference. TromaDance is proud to be the first and only film festival of the people, for the people, and by the people.
