Troma is a fiercely independent film studio with an impressive catalogue of horror and exploitation titles. The brand has been around since 1974. It was co-founded by Lloyd Kaufman and his college friend Michael Herz. It is now one of the largest and longest standing independent film studios in the US. Through the Troma brand, we’ve been introduced to a series of cult icons like The Toxic Avenger and Sergeant Kabukiman. Troma has also served as a jumping off point for genre film celebrities and household names alike. Writer/Director James Gunn (Gaurdians of the Galaxy) got his start working with Troma and splatter master Eli Roth began his career acting in Troma pictures.
Get ready, Utah! Troma is heading to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City and are sure to bring their unique brand of off-the-wall humor with them. A representative from the distributor will be on site seeking new acquisitions for release under the Troma banner. While there, the company rep will also be seeking buyers for the company’s two newest offerings, Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volumes One and Two. Volume Two is set to make its world premiere in Toronto later in the year. A Brand rep will be available on site to meet with filmmakers seeking distribution for their completed films. To set up a meeting, you can contact the brand through their website.
