See the Films – Meet the Artists

From large scale events to small intimate screenings, Dance Films Presents showcases 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, films are included from separate submissions and ones we are excited about.

Due to Covid-19 cautions our 2020 Dance Films Presents offerings have gone to a digital presentation.
