The first event of the expanded Dance Film Lab was a great success, as you can see from the testimony of one of the participants, below.
When I go to Dance Film Lab, I am sure to have a good experience. Whether I am showing my own video or appreciating and commenting on others’ videos, I learn about what makes dance film work. Zach is an excellent moderator, corralling the conversation toward supportive feedback, and giving spot-on feedback himself. All levels are welcome in this environment and people are helpful to each other, both by giving support and feedback, and also by exchanging practical tips. I highly recommend this ongoing workshop.

And another from an earlier alumna of DFL:
How are you? You may not remember but I came to a Dance Film Lab – nearly a year ago! I was actually so inspired by the experience that I wrote the beginnings of a screenplay on the train on my way home. Shortly thereafter, I founded my own dance film production company, DANCELEN(D)S.
Today, we released our first independent production – manouevres – on YouTube, with an incredible street crew and company called Project Valentine.That lab really helped me to move forward on the goals I had to explore dance film in my own way – and so I just wanted to reach out and say thank you!All the best,
