The characterization may not be fair, but for 11 years the Slamdance Film Festival has been seen by many movie-industry types as merely the Sundance stepchild. And the notion is only reinforced by the two festivals’ concurrent scheduling in Park City each year, as if Slamdance is merely riding on Sundance’s considerable coattails. But as Hobbits invade this year’s festival, Slamdance may finally get the respect it deserves. Slamdance has scored what is arguably the biggest star event in Park City this year — the documentary “Ringers: Lord of the Fans,” a look at J.R.R. Tolkein fans, narrated by “Lord of the Rings” star Dominic Monaghan, who is also a star on the new hit TV series “Lost.” Monaghan is expected to be in attendance for some of the film’s screenings, along with “Rings” co-stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Viggo Mortensen and Billy Boyd.
