A series of moderated screenings led by industry professionals. Dance Film Lab welcomes everyone from seasoned dance filmmakers to those curious about the process and how to start to gather and address technical, practical, and artistic challenges.
From large scale events to small intimate screenings, Dance Films Presents showcases ambitious programming focused on films specifically geared for a special venue or around a specific theme.
Many of these films are from our annual Dance on Camera Festival, reflecting our dedication to support these filmmakers year-round. Additionally, we also include films from separate submissions and ones we are just excited about.
Capturing Motion NYC is an annual workshop series and dance film competition for high school students in the five boroughs. DFA facilitates school workshops in interactive dance film education for students and teachers. The workshops culminate in the Capturing Motion NYC competition, in which students submit their work to be a part of Dance on Camera Festival.
This 46th year of Dance on Camera Festival, we launch DFA Global, an international program that provides a platform of support and dialogue with global screen dance partners and producers. The Dance on Camera Festival at Film Society of Lincoln Center has a long tradition of screening international films. DFA Global is an extension of that commitment. Dance Films Association’s inaugural selections will be announced in June. Festival dates are July 20- 24, 2018.
