The key to Troma Entertainment’s 40 years of success as America’s oldest independent film company is staying close to its fans. Thanks to 400 generous fans who donated on Indiegogo, the Troma Team was able to go to Cannes to shoot much of the Occupy Cannes. Now we are launching the Occupy Cannes blog on Chill to keep our fans close and updated as we finish the film.
