I don't understand why you would use the word underground in the title
of your site. A film festival section devoted to Sundance is hardly
underground at all. It's Indie Hollywood. Underground is more along
the lines of the NY Underground Film Fest as well as the one in Chicago
and various other venues which offer screening opportunitites for
marginalized, non-commercial, uncategorizable movies. Sundance is just
huge. After all, they have their own cable channel and are spearheaded
by Robert Redford. How non-conformist is that?
Do you know where I would get information, contact numbers, web pages, ect.
concerning slumdance, undance, nodance, slamdunk and other alternatives to Slamdance/Sundance?
Well, I assume that you are here because you can't find the information on the internets. For festival information, we normally recommend Without A Box but there a lot of oddball festivals out there that are not listed with WAB. Google is really your best bet for these kind of searches but I would also try Filmfestivals.com.
If you can't find them via Google, WAB, or Filmfestivals.com do you really want to submit/attend?
Think about it.
