Why Submit

If you're considering submitting your dance film, here are some reasons we think you should submit!

The LA Dance Film Festival was founded by two dance filmmakers. We are entirely self-funded and don't answer to any corporate sponsors or interests. We've also chosen a high-quality, independent theater, the Los Feliz 3, to help us exhibit the films in January.

We aim to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for dance filmmakers. The festival is about celebrating achievements and advancements across a range of international dance film. In service of this goal, we've gathered a cross-disciplinary submissions team to thoroughly review all films entered. We also have an experienced Advisory Board and Jury guiding our curation and production of the festival.

On the audience side, we're bringing together both film and dance lovers to increase awareness and education around dance film. We created LADFF to engage new audiences in the exciting work being produced by dance filmmakers around the world.
