Inaugurated in 1971 and considered the “mother” of dance film festivals, the Dance On Camera annually presents a broad range of films including documentaries, shorts, features, experimental works, and music videos that celebrate the immediacy of dance combined with the intimacy of film. In 1996, Dance Films Association and the Film Society of Lincoln Center partnered to co-present the Dance on Camera Festival, hosting screenings at the Walter Reade Theater and for the first time during the 40th Anniversary in 2012, at the new Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center. Past partners have included Movement Research, the Baryshnikov Arts Center, and The Big Screen Project. Since 1999, DFA has facilitated the Dance on Camera Tour.
