From the moment the words “motion” and “pictures” were first paired, dance and film were destined for one another. Now, as mobile technology empowers a new generation of filmmakers, comes the first dance film festival featuring works shot entirely on mobile devices.

The first ever 92Y Mobile Dance Film Festival explores the magic that happens at the intersection of choreography, camerawork and editing — revealing new dimensions in movement and offering intimate access and up-close perspectives on the physical and spatial dynamics of dance. It’s dance and film — like you’ve never experienced before.

Join us as we discover dance’s next take!

Ten films, selected by an international jury of dance filmmakers, will be screened on Saturday, July 28, 2018, at 92Y Harkness Dance Center.

In addition to the full length films, applicants must submit a film trailer (up to 1 minute).
