The LA Dance Film Festival will take place in January 2018 in Los Angeles. The festival will feature filmmakers from around the world. Submissions open now through October 20, 2017.

Our goal is to create a supportive and inclusive environment for dance film. We accept a variety of film genres as long as they utilize dance as the main storytelling component.
