For the first time, SFDFF has designated a special venue to screen live-performance captured films. Films from IMZ Members like EuroArts and Bel Air Media - Alexander Ekman’s “Swan Lake” and “Midsummer Nights Dream”, the Dutch National Ballet’s “Mata Hari” and “The Ninth Symphony by Maurice Bejart” will all be screened at the 8th annual fall festival.

The festival will feature over 90 dance films from around the world, running Thursday, October 19 through Sunday, October 22 across four venues. Along with screenings, the full festival will include opening and closing receptions, post-screening Q&A with filmmakers, brief live performances, and special presentations.
Another new addition this year will be an exhibition of VR 360 films where participants in headsets can virtually step inside the dances of Paul Taylor, relive the history of Cuban dance and more.
An exciting collaboration with Catharine Clark Gallery will extend the festival with an exhibition of art/experimental films running from September 9 through October 28, 2017. The festival will wrap up with the premieres of two new films from SFDFF’s annual filmmaking project, the Co-Laboratory and other local shorts. The evening will culminate in an awards ceremony featuring cash prizes in eight categories.
