School of Dance alumni Andrew Chapman has recently developed a Dance Film Festival at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. The Mobile Dance Film Festival is the first film festival to present dance film shot solely on mobile devices.
The first ever 92Y Mobile Dance Film Festival explores the magic that happens at the intersection of choreography, camerawork and editing — revealing new dimensions in movement and offering intimate access and up-close perspectives on the physical and spatial dynamics of dance. It’s dance and film — like you’ve never experienced before.
Ten films, selected by an international jury of dance filmmakers, will be screened on Saturday, July 28, 2018, at 92Y Harkness Dance Center in New York. Submissions to the film festival are encouraged. The application deadline is Thursday May 31, 2018 and specific submission requirements can be found on 92Y’s website.
