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 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!

The films below, selected by an international jury of dance filmmakers, were presented at 92Y Harkness Dance Center at the Festival’s live screening.
