A Message from the Curator 6.6.2020

Dear Dance Filmmaker,

FilmFest by Rogue Dancer has been a dream for a long time.  Since our roll out in October we have had 8 events with curated themes (2 live) & screened 109 incredible dance films (4,500 views!). We have dreamed up enough themes to get us through 2021. Today, we are with all of you, navigating our way through this COVID-19 pandemic, the worlds fight against systemic racism, equality and hope we fight through the global crisis to a much “better” normal on the other side.

We want yo share your VOICE through your WORK.

The response from our dancers and dance filmmakers on social media has been powerful. For the June event, we have decided to add a special theme devoted to the pandemic to include works made since the world’s isolation began. FilmFest by Rogue Dancer: OUtBreaK Edition. Knit together all of your social media experiments together and submit your work… and for your efforts we are offering a new Submission (30%) discount Code: ffxrdOUtBreaK30. Offer until June 15th.

Our goal is to present as many of the globe’s DANCE Films in a monthly format, curated elegantly into broadly interpreted themes.  We are bringing the FilmFest to the audience. The audience & filmmakers can view on their own time, not be limited to a small local venue & continue to maintain proper social distancing until we know what the future holds. When we can shake hands, hug and enjoy meals together over the same table, in true Rogue Dancer Style, I will be partnering up with more venues for more LIVE events.

It has been a true honor to screen the work, I’ve been putting together DANCE Film Events for 6 years, and the work just gets better and better.
We want to share all of your work (new & old, big & small, any budget)

A monthly Festival is a lot of films with a very fast turn around.  I am curating and categorizing as I go, so please make your films available for download.
