The Pittsburgh International Dance Film Festival (PIDFF) is emerging from the former Constructed Sight Dance Film Festival as the premiere dance film festival in Pittsburgh, PA. This festival features a wide range of dance films from different countries and honors a “Constructed Sight” category which highlights public works of art or focuses films on a site specific location.

This online dance film festival includes a live Opening Night Event in Pittsburgh where audiences can join through live streaming to see Panelist Picks and meet some of the artists. PIDFF also includes an online Meet & Greet Event for participating filmmakers/artists and an online Dance Film Workshop open to the public!

One artist in 2022 stated, “I’ve never experienced a dance film festival with such a sense and feeling of community before.”
