A Message from the Curator 11.19.2020

Dear DanceFilm Lover,

FilmFest by Rogue Dancer has been a dream for a long time.  We are now 1 YEAR old!!! Since our roll out in October (2019) we have had 13 monthly events with elegantly curated themes, 4 live screenings & shared 202 incredible international dance films (5,880 views!). In June we even added a special FilmFest by Rogue Dancer: OUtBreaK Edition devoted to the pandemic & included works made since the world’s isolation began. Our “think tank” has dreamed up enough themes to get us through 2022.

Today, we are still with you, all of us navigating our way through this COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s fight against systemic racism, equality, a divided country and hope we fight through the global crisis to a much “better” normal on the other side.

The response from our dancers and dance filmmakers on social media has been powerful. Continue to share your work, your experiments & your evolution as a Dance on Film Artist with us. Please send Rogue Dancer your historic work, new collaborations & knit together all of your social media experiments together and SUBMIT… and for your efforts we are offering a new Submission (20%) discount Code: RDSeason220. Offer until November 30th, 2020.

We want to share your VOICE through your WORK.

It has been a true honor to screen the work & the films just get better and better.

November 2020 – Land…SCAPE Edition

Event drops NOV 20th – DEC 6th, 2020

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 am partnering up with venues for more LIVE events (Outdoors & Socially Distanced).

Thank you for the creative work you do!!!

Keep on Dancing,
Jennifer Scully-Thurston
