Our programs bring artists, curators, and fans of film and dance together.
Everyone is invited to participate- from the slightly curious, to the seasoned filmmaker.



Become a Dance Filmmaker

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.


See the Films – Meet the Artists

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.
