Troma Opens a Cannes of Worms,

New York, N.Y., May 10, 2018 - Greetings from Tromaville!

Troma Entertainment, the world's longest running independent film studio, has released "From Festival to Fascism," a short documentary detailing the company's troubling experience at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.  -  it was announced today by Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger. 

Watch "From Festival to Fascism" on

Troma and Lloyd Kaufman have been a colorful and legendary participant at the Cannes Film Festival since 1971. But, as the 2018 Cannes Film Festival rolls on, Lloyd Kaufman and Troma Entertainment recall their not-so welcome visit to Cannes last year with "From Festival to Fascism" on their YouTube channel,

"I wasn't kidding when I said, I will never go back to Fascist Cannes Film Festival. The once legitimate, pro-independent arts festival that embraced free speech and artistic expression has become just another tool for government elites, mega media conglomerates and the 'coteries of the favored' to dominate the art world and stomp/police out true independent art." stated Lloyd Kaufman. "They must have learned this from the Sundance Film Festival!"


Up next in Theaters from Troma is Lloyd Kaufman's second installment of his two-part event film,  Return to Return to Nuke 'Em High AKA Vol.2 ! 7 years in the making,  Vol.2  is shaping up to be what Michael Herz has called "The best Troma Movie ever made!"
