Audiences from around the world were invited to participate in the Summit by tuning into www.slamdance.com summit and continue the conversation through Twitter with designated hashtags. Columbia University and University of Southern California were amongst several colleges that held live auditorium events of the Summit.
Selections from the Grand Jury and Audience Award winning films will be screened in several domestic venues throughout the year, including the IFC Center in New York City.
