What is the Slamdance Channel?
The Slamdance Channel is a curated streaming platform that allows you to discover the future of filmmaking year-round. For our filmmakers this means being more broadly recognized and fairly rewarded for their creative endeavor.
What makes the Slamdance Channel special?
It's a rebellion against an industry increasingly dependent on algorithms. We are anti-algorithm. The future of film, like any art form, depends on truly unique voices that defy simple classification and transcend analytics. We are celebrating these voices on the Channel that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in storytelling.

What is Slamdance?
In all we do, Slamdance fiercely embodies its mantra: By Filmmakers, For Filmmakers. Though Slamdance has greatly evolved since the early years, its mission and organization remains the same. Slamdance serves new and emerging artists, filmmakers, and storytellers from around the world. Our programmers gravitate towards films that embody the true DIY spirit of guerrilla filmmaking.
Filmmakers that first showed their work at the festival include film industry game-changers like Christopher Nolan, the Russo Brothers, Jon M. Chu and Gina Prince-Bythewood as well as visionaries on the rise such as Ana Lily Amirpour, Lee Isaac Chung and Merawi Gerima.
How does the Slamdance Channel support filmmakers?
Filmmakers who are part of our year-round programming receive fifty percent of our gross profit.
