DFA Curated Kickstarter Page

Our two most recently curated projects on our Kickstarter Page are from DFA Members. We ask you to support their efforts and fuel the artist to artist giving cycle! What Love Tells Me by Keyvn Farichild Kickstarter Project  what love tells meTwo 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 Fleet Moves is a brand new dance festival produced by the The Movement Party in collaboration with Wellfleet Preservation Hall, and Farm Project Space.
