ADF’s Movies by Movers invites short dance films by students and professionals for our 2019 season! Films will be screened at the American Dance Festival during its annual summer festival in Durham, NC, and on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. Additionally, films may be selected to be screened on campuses across the United States through the Institutional Partnership Program.

This year, in addition to our general submissions for student and professional projects there are two new categories. The animation category invites professional dance films which feature stop motion, rotoscope, digital animation, and other forms of animation. The Underrepresented Directors/Choreographers category invites professional dance films whose leadership team includes artists from groups underrepresented in dance film and the arts more broadly; people of color; people in the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, people of various shapes and sizes, and more. Artists are invited to self-identify here.
