The Fifth Annual Jacksonville Dance-Film Festival (JDFF) will be screened in Jacksonville in the Spring of 2020. JDFF joins a handful of national organizations that present dance films, and is the only one of its kind in Northeast Florida. JDFF, an extension of Jacksonville Dance Theatre, aims to connect diverse audiences, cultures, and creative communities through the universal language of film and movement. JDFF exposes the First Coast to the dynamic collaboration between dance and camera, and how this innovative cross-media art form challenges and expands the way we see both dance and film.

    We treasured this opportunity to premiere our film, In the House of My Mother, at JDFF. The festival was incredible. Held at a great downtown contemp. art venue - Jax's MOCA, 3 one-hour programs highlighted some truly exciting work in Dance film-making. Thanks for including us!
