LA Dance Film Festival – February 8th, 5pm

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.

I Am Human – February 12th, 7pm

I Am Human – Film Screening & Panel Discussion, February 12th 7pm

Tickets available here!

Winner of four “Best Feature” awards following its premiere at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, I AM HUMAN chronicles the emotional journeys of three real-world pioneers with implantable brain interfaces – a paraplegic, blind retiree, and an artist struggling with Parkinson’s – and the scientists and entrepreneurs on the frontlines of pressing technical and ethical quandaries.

Will the same technology that cures disease lead to super human abilities, telepathic communication, and cognitive enhancement? From the research lab to the operating table, I AM HUMAN follows humanity’s march down a new evolutionary path, unpacking the emerging complexity and real world possibilities of a technology that challenges the very essence of what it means to be human.

Directed by Taryn Southern and Elena Gaby, I AM HUMAN premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. See what others are saying about the movie: Wired | The Big Think | CBS News
