FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
X-RATED GRANDMA TO ROCK PARK CITY
Slamdance, Indieroad Team With Truman for Online Event
Lamar, Missouri - The X-Rated Grandma is returning to Park City.
And this time, the whole world can watch.
The Slamdance Film Festival has partnered with Indieroad.net to feature an online event, highlighting a showcase collection of short films of alumni filmmaker Jack Truman as part of Slamdance's annual Park City festival Jan. 15-23, 2009. Truman's first film, the award-winning short mockumentary PHONE SEX GRANDMA premiered at the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival.
THE X-RATED GRANDMA is a compilation of 7 short films of Truman's real-life Mother, Opal Dockery over a 3-year period. Through a combined Slamdance/Indieroad.net site (www.indieroad.net/slamdance), Slamdance will stream a collection of shorts from THE X-RATED GRANDMA throughout the festival period, along with a selection of official festival films. Bringing these short films through the festival online to a worldwide audience for the first time, this groundbreaking partnership will allow audiences the opportunity to see these festival films from a location of their choosing, even if they cannot physically attend.
Truman's films from THE X-RATED GRANDMA will be the only featured short films online during the fest from a Slamdance alumni.
"We're thrilled to return to Slamdance", Truman stated in press materials. "As an indie filmmaker, Slamdance is like the family you never had. And as a short filmmaker, this festival has empowered and brought my extreme alternative films to a worldwide audience. It will be exciting to be a part of this groundbreaking online event during the Park City madness".
The festival runs Jan. 15-23, 2009 in Park City, Utah.
