FilmFest by Rogue Dancer is a DANCE film festival that offers a monthly curated on-line screening exclusively for DANCE Films only. Each month Dance films are elegantly sorted into unexpected themes. We are committed to serving the DANCE community and to ensuring that wonderful DANCE movie projects from across the globe can be seen and appreciated by as wide an audience as possible.

DANCE FILM (verb /dæns/ noun /fɪlm/) synonymous with Dance on Screen, Dance on Film, Video dance, Screen dance… etc. you get the picture.

We want CHOREOGRAPHERS & DANCERS to be household names. FilmFest by Rogue Dancer is a unique online platform for DANCE Film only.

DANCE should be seen, appreciated and have developed audiences that exist outside the DANCE world. FILM is the way to do this. We want to peek curiosities and drive audiences to all the incredible performances that exist in the greater world. The universe should know the work that has been made throughout the ages and what we know, as dancers, has been going on in the DANCE Studio all along.

We have bigger goals than creating a DANCE Film Festival. Any filmmaker who submits to FilmFest by Rogue Dancer is agreeing to become part of our DANCE Film ARCHIVE, and future Rogue Dancer and sister events. More on that as we grow…

This is how it will work… The curatorial theme will change from month to month.
