The 30th Slamdance Film Festival has announced its complete 2024 lineup, including 32 features, 75 shorts and five episodic titles. Slamdance will take place in-person at Yarrow Hotel in Park City and in Salt Lake City, Utah from Jan. 19-25, and online screenings will be offered on the Slamdance Channel from Jan. 22-28.

Oscar-winner Carol Dysinger’s documentary “One Bullet” will open the festival and Vanessa Hope’s “Invisible Nation” (pictured), which explores the political landscape of Taiwan, will close the festival on Jan. 25.

“Our 2024 Slamdance lineup is a testament to filmmakers who dare to push their stories to the very edge of filmmaking, making it deeply personal yet globally resonant,” said festival director Taylor Miller. “Their raw passion and risk-taking echo our commitment to exploring uncharted territories of cinematic expression. This year, we proudly host the most inclusive and accessible festival we’ve ever had, staying true to the core objectives I aimed to cultivate with our programmers when I took this job.” 

Slamdance has expressed its dedication to highlighting diverse artists. This year, 43% of films come from BIPOC creators, and 43% are made by female or non-binary filmmakers. Featured projects hail from a wide range of countries including Afghanistan, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Greece, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Norway, Palestine, Russia, the U.K., and more.

Some of the narrative features slated to screen include Omar S. Kamara’s “African Giants,” Tehben Dean and Rasheed Stephens’ “All I’ve Got and Then Some” and Antonis Tsonis’ “Brando with the Glass Eye.” Two of the documentaries on the lineup include Daniel Robbins’ “Citizen Weiner” and Hadley Austin’s “Demon Mineral.”
