Screen. Dance. Now. is a one-day festival that showcases feature films, screendance shorts, artists talks, and workshops. The Screendance Shorts Series features work by cutting-edge dance filmmakers who are pushing the envelope of the genre. We define "screendance" as a version or style of media at the intersections of film and dance. This can be video dance, dance for camera, music video that contains mostly dance, dance short, or more. Time limit for all content is 12 minutes.

Screen. Dance. Now. is co-directed and produced by Joanna McNamara of JMC/PRODUCTIONS, and Marcus White/White Werx - a Detroit-based performance production company that has received national recognition for dance film programming and curation in the area of dance film.
