LA Dance Film Festival – February 8th
Screening 6:00 PM, Awards Show 8:00 PM
The LA Dance Film Festival was founded in 2016 with the intention of creating more opportunities for dance filmmakers and increase visibility of dance film as an art form. We accept a variety of film genres with the stipulation that dance is utilized as the main storytelling component.
Dance film is a genre of cinematic storytelling created through movement. In contrast to traditional dialogue-driven films, dance films offer new ways to connect with characters and ideas that are beyond words. While dance film has been produced for decades, we found it was surprisingly underrepresented in Los Angeles.
LADFF aims to expand local creation, collaboration and viewership through exhibiting extraordinary international dance films, connecting filmmakers and providing new opportunities for emerging artists.
