As the dance community temporarily shifts online through virtual classrooms and presentations, the power of dance filmmakers to connect us across geographies and communities has never been more potent and relevant. Dance Place is excited to present its second year of Dance on Film now as apart of Dance Place’s virtual presentation series. Curated by Carolyn Hoehner, six different films from across the country will be presented across two evenings: July 18th and August 8th.

Selected films will receive a $100 screening fee.

Selected films will be streamed through Dance Place social media EITHER July 18-19 or August 8-9, 2020. 10-15 seconds of selected films will be used in promotional materials for Dance on Film events.

Films may be no more than 20 minutes in length.

Filmmaker(s) may be invited to participate in live conversations one of two live-streamed events: July 18, 6:30pm or August 8, 6:30pm EST
Availability for either of these panels is not required; however, please let us know availability of filmmaker(s) below when submitting:
__Available July 18, 6:30pm EST

__Available for either date

Dance Place was delighted to receive a staggering amount of applications to our call for dance films in our summer 2019 series. In order to manage submission numbers for our small team, this year we are asking for a $5 contribution from artists submitting films. This contribution will go directly towards supporting artist fees for the Dance on Film series. If you are interested in submitting to this opportunity and this submission contribution is a barrier for any reason, don't hesitate to reach out to

    This film festival was perhaps the best we have participated in thus far. Very professional, very friendly, very supportive of the artists. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for having us!
