DANCE FILMS IS WHO WE ARE!

WHO WE ARE

DIVULGE Dancer’s Film Festival (DF2) is a unique yearly event that offers dancers, choreographers and filmmakers a chance to DIVULGE their story with both on screen and live dance performances.

 

There is no other film festival like it that focuses solely on promoting the stories of dancers, their impact, and the influence they have in our community, as well as reveal their creative minds portrayed through motion picture.

 

DF2 is poised to feature short and feature-length dance movies, dance documentary, dance videos, narrative dance videos, and music videos. It prioritizes films that are done with captivating storylines, cinematography, and creative choreography.

DF2 is in close collaboration with  South Coast Dance Arts Alliance and Style Dance Industry.  

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT MAKES DF2 UNIQUE?

 

DF2 is the first film festival that focuses more on the dancers’ narrative stories (i.e. what dance is to them, how dance changes and enriches their lives, what sacrifices they have made for dance) rather than on their artwork. There are numerous dance film festivals around the world, but this is the only one designed to focus on a dancer’s inspirations and motivations, not just on their dance technique. It’s a collection of both artistic and highly emotional, personal stories from dancers all around the world, shared with the audience through music, movement, and screen.

"If it's life-enriching, it's worth telling."
