San Francisco Dance Film Festival Call for Entries

San Francisco Dance Film Festival Announces New Live Performance Capture Category for Submissions and Competition. Cash prizes awarded to the winners.

SFDFF is currently accepting submissions until May 1 of dance films for its 8th annual fall festival in San Francisco. SFDFF is pleased to announce that a special venue has been secured that will allow the festival to screen live-performance captures. Due to limited screen time in the main theater, past screenings have been primarily curated screenings of short screen dance films and documentaries. For the first time, SFDFF will be able to feature the longer performance films on a second screen and would like to encourage IMZ members who produce or distribute live performance captures to submit their films to the SFDFF competition.
