After a year away, the Mobile Dance Film Festival is thrilled to return to the 92Y for in-person programming!
The MDFF will screen three programs of Official Selections. The Festival will also be launching its first-ever program of Student Film Selections!
Additionally, all programs will be available to screen virtually from July 31 - August 15.
Looking forward to sharing these incredible films from this community of brilliant artists and filmmakers!
Important information about vaccination requirements
Mobile Dance Film Festival in-person screenings will be presented to fully vaccinated audiences. Patrons will be required to show proof of vaccination with security upon entering to attend these performances. New York State has now clarified that a child up to the age of 16 who is unvaccinated and accompanied by a vaccinated adult may, in fact, attend events that otherwise are open only to people who are vaccinated. In such an event, the child will not need to be socially distanced, but they will need to wear masks at all times while attending the event.
