Celebrating its 15th year as an alternative to the annual Sundance Film Festival, Slamdance has announced Dominic Monaghan’s “I Sell the Dead” as the opening night film. The “Lord of the Rings,” star is featured in the film along with Ron Perlman (Hellboy).

The Slamdance Film Festival also featured the world premiere of “Ringers: Lord of the Fans,” made by members of TheOneRing.net (Cliff Broadway, Carlene Cordova). The festival runs concurrently with the Sundance festival in Park City, Utah, headquartered in the Treasure Mountain Inn on Park City’s Main Street. Slamdance’s mission is to support truly independent film and showcase works from first time filmmakers.

The film is written and directed by Glenn McQuaid and is set in the 1800s and follows a pair of bumbling grave robbers who begin to unearth peculiar corpses. A complete listing can be found at SlamDance.com
