Exclusive: Troma To Make ‘Occupy Cannes,’ A Documentary About True Independent Cinema; Find Out How To Contribute
Posted on Tuesday, January 15th, 2013 by Germain Lussier
Troma has a plan to give the biggest film festival in the world a huge middle finger and you can be a part of it. We’re proud to exclusively announce that the independent film studio, which has been in business for 40 years, is going to make a brand new documentary called Occupy Cannes. Filming will take place at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival centering on the studio’s latest production, Return to Nuke ‘Em High.
Troma CEO Lloyd Kaufman and the team will take the Nuke ‘Em High sequel there, premiere it and along the way film the real side of Cannes, an international film festival they believe has gotten away from the true spirit of the movies. Occupy Cannes aims to be a 21st century David vs. Goliath story with Troma taking on the media conglomerates that control not only the film industry, but everything else, very much in the vein of their 2002 documentary, All the Love You Cannes.
That’s where you come in. With Troma being such an independent film studio, this project needs help from fans across the world. They’ve just started an IndieGoGo Page where you can contribute and help Troma go to Cannes and give them a swift kick in the balls.
