Dance Film SF announces programming for its 11th annual San Francisco Dance Film Festival. The complete festival lineup of 12 programmes will be presented on Marquee TV, an international performing-arts streaming service along with Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco.
For the first time, the festival’s full curation of 75 dance-based films from 45 countries will be made available to a global audience through Marquee TV. Kathleya Afanador, co-founder and head of content for Marquee TV, stated, “We’ve long been admirers of the San Francisco Dance Film Festival and the curatorial voice that it contributes to the field, both nationally and internationally. In a year that has been so unpredictable and precarious, these opportunities for connection and community are all the more important to support. We’re proud to partner with SFDFF on this year’s digital festival to bring these films together, showcase these talented artists and ensure that their work reaches its widest possible audience.”
Opening with UPROOTED – THE JOURNEY OF JAZZ featuring Debbie Allen, the festival’s feature length works also include a full live performance capture of Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young’s new stage work REVISOR and the soul-searching poetic film TOM by Wilkie Branson who blends dance and animation to poignantly reflect today’s zeitgeist. Also featured are six unique, engaging and provocative shorts programmes, including SFDFF’s third edition of RAISING VOICES, a collection of dance films creatively exploring and illuminating racial and social justice issues through dance, music and poetry.
