The Third Coast Dance Film Festival celebrates the intersection of contemporary dance and the moving image with a screening series of short dance films. We seek work that reflect diversity in genre, form, and representation. The Third Coast Dance Film Festival is especially interested in low budget/high impact and female driven (cis, trans, non binary, gender-fluid) work.
The 2023 festival will premiere at the Nevada Museum of Art and the Holland project in Reno, NV. A touring program of select films will follow.
