Flatlands Dance Film Festival

Knight Auditorium at the Spurlock MuseumEach fall, we present a variety of films and shorts dedicated to dance performance, dance for camera, influential artists in the field, and the social impact of dance across the world. The Flatlands Dance Film Festival is also host to a film competition for aspiring dance filmmakers.

We believe our festival exemplifies our commitment to promoting and expanding the role of dance in our community. As we strive to present stellar performances on our stages, we recognize the vast potential for the choreographic to infuse the cinematic.

The 2017 Flatlands Dance Film Festival will be September 1-2, 2017, at the Spurlock Museum.

The Flatlands Dance Film Festival would not be possible without the support from corporate and individual donors. We'd like to thank Dixon Graphics and the Spurlock Museum for their support of the 2017 festival.
