Call for entries now open for Season 7 of the Motion State Dance Film Series.

Where: Providence, RI USA

When: September-April 2024-25

Deadline for applications: August 10, 2024

Now in its Seventh Season, the Motion State Dance Film Series is the only year-long, traveling short dance film festival in New England devoted to showcasing the diversity of contemporary creative voices exploring the medium of choreography for the camera. By taking the festival “on the road” and into non-traditional film venues, such as art galleries, music halls, performing arts theaters, and university classrooms, the Motion State Dance Film Series seeks to expose the films and filmmakers to new audiences. Every screening is followed by a public Q & A with the curators.

All festival artists are invited and encouraged to take part in the conversation. Past venues have included Jamestown Arts Center (RI), Trinity College (Hartford, CT), Newport Art Museum (RI), Zeiterion Theatre (New Bedford, MA), Columbus Theatre (Providence, RI), Redfern Arts Center (Keene, NH) and the Providence Public Library (Providence).

The Motion State Dance Film Series is directed by Ali Kenner Brodsky and Andy Russ.
