Festival of the Moving Body Film Series


Working in partnership with Dance Films Association in New York City

Dance Films Association is honored to support the Festival of the Moving Body. We are most excited to help make possible the work-in-progress screening of The Foreign Puzzle, a recipient of DFA's Production Grant in 2011, with filmmaker Chithra Jeyaram in attendance. In addition, it is wonderful to see the inclusion of past Dance on Camera films Breath Made Visible by Ruedi Gerber and Håstdans på Hovdala by JoAnna Mendl Shawand and  for past Dance on Camera filmmaker and current DFA member Gabri Christa to give the Friday Morning keynote presentation. Our curatorial goal for this program was to build relationships and foster community in order to bring new ideas forward around the integration of dance, film and the moving body. Dance Films Association's mission is to further the art of dance film, and we are only able to do so by collaborating with partners such as the Festival of the Moving Body. We congratulate Amy Yopp Sullivan on her visionary work and look forward to the future of the festival.
