Mobile Dance Film Festival

Smartphones. Sensational Dance.

If mobile devices free up more filmmakers in this way, the next mobile dance film festival could be something to see.”

The New York Times

The smartphone has enabled artists to escape dance’s time/space conundrum to unleash their creativity in surprising ways. The motto of the festival could be ‘have smartphone, will dance’ as artists break free from the four walls of the studio and theater.”
