Dare to Dance in Public Film Festival: Round 4

Eiko Otake's "A Body on Wall Street" William Johnston

Dare to Dance in Public Film Festival: Round 4 (D2D) is now open for submissions!

D2D is a live & online, international, dance film festival dedicated to democratizing dance, doing it in public, & sharing it on film.  We are committed to promoting dance that happens in the public realm - outside of studios and off traditional stages… dance that explores place and space, engages an unsuspecting public, and intersects creatively with film.  Cash awards are given in 5-6 categories and both winning and honorably mentioned films are featured in Cultural Weekly, an online magazine. 

This year's theme is aptly entitled PANDEMANIA! , a made up word that we define as follows: (a state of abnormally elevated arousal, affect, and energy level due to isolation, frustration, anger, and various strong emotions brought about as a direct result of the Coronavirus, as well as issues/world events e.g. systemic racism, immigration, the environment, LGBTQX & women’s rights, and other pandemics in our collective history. Pandemania frequently ensues in a heightened need for self-expression through movement.
