Dance Films Association is excited to introduce our newest series, Films That Move. From large scale events to smaller intimate screenings, these varied collections of films have movement in common. Our goal? Embed dance film into New York City’s locomotive fabric. We’re starting local, collaborating with our friends down the street for Films That Move at Gibney Dance Center. In the future months, we’ll expand, reaching downtown, to Brooklyn, and soon all five boroughs. We’ll have more to share in the coming weeks about Films That Move, be on the lookout! May 21st, 2012 Films That Move at Gibney Dance Center 890 Broadway, 5th Floor New York, New York 10010 Featuring work by three New York based dance filmmakers: An Ostrich Proudly by Xan Burley and Alex Springer Becoming Be-going by Run Shayo Windings by Zena Bibler
DFA SUPPORTSallie@gibneydance.org. Kickstarter Project Two men. One city. Passion without words. Expressed entirely through dance, their bodies are their voices as their romance blooms. The title of the film comes from Mahler’s own description of the final movement of his genre-shattering symphonic work, which inspired the film. Principle photography will begin June 2012. Money raised through Kickstarter will be used to cover various production expenses including equipment, talent, crew, incentives, post-production and music rights. Fleet Moves Dance Festival produced by The Movement Party Kickstarter Project Fleet Moves is a brand new dance festival produced by the The Movement Party in collaboration with Wellfleet Preservation Hall, and Farm Project Space.
