Dare to Dance in PublicFilmFestival (D2D) is dedicated to the concept of democratizing dance through the international genre of screen dance. We are committed to promoting dance that happens in the public realm & alternative sites outside of studios and off traditional stages… dance that explores place and space, engages an unsuspecting public, and intersects creatively and in exciting new ways with film. D2D presents films that explore dance as an urgent, irrational, universal language, and transform our preconceptions of what it is to be human.

Whether it’s in parking lots, super market aisles, train stations, or on city streets, Dare to Dance in Public Film Festival is about using film to share the power of dance as a life force that connects us as people… transcending race, religion, ethnicity, culture, language, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Each year, we have a panel of acclaimed judges from the worlds of dance & film join D2D Founder/Director Sarah Elgart & Creative Producer Zoe Rappaport to determine D2D’s award winners & honorable mentions. Past judges have included: Desmond Richardson, Louise Lecavalier, Tony Testa, Stephen Galloway, d. Sabela Grimes, Casey Brooks, Katherine Helen Fisher, Julie McDonald and many more. This year’s judges to be announced soon.
