Every year during the Sundance Film Festival, there's another quieter festival doing its thing in Park City called Slamdance. Both fests run at the same time, though one is this really big, stylish, celebrity-spottin' hip-to-be-seen scene, while the other is a warm, welcoming place to settle down with friends and take in some quality independent entertainment. Needless to say, though they're both located in the same neighborhood, these are two very different festivals -- different vibes, different venues, different merch. And although we here at Cinematical primarily cover Sundance, we will try to get to as many Slamdance flicks as we can come January.

Speaking of, the fest just announced their slate for 2009 and it includes some fine-looking little nuggets. Among some of the flicks enjoying their world premiere are the new one from those Broken Lizard dudes, The Slammin' Salmon, about an owner of a restaurant who, indebted to the mob, decides to hold a contest to see which waiter can earn the most money in one night. Also on the sched is Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead, a wacky-sounding opening night flick called I Sell the Dead, and a bunch more. Check out the list of films (along with descriptions) after the jump, then let us know which ones you want us to review for you from Park City.
