As Communications Associate, I am thrilled to introduce Farihah Zaman, contributing writer for the Dance on Camera Festival. Growing up in Bangladesh she is now an established writer for publications like Filmmaker Magazine and Huffington Post (see full bio below!). Her interest in dance film started with Bollywood’s UMRAO JAAN and was rekindled by the restoration of the RED SHOES, both of which bring her now to Dance on Camera.
To pique your interest, each day next week we’ll post a feature on different Dance on Camera programs, starting with a look at Matthew Bourne’s SWAN LAKE 3D for Monday, January 28th.
