The 7th Annual Greensboro Dance Film Festival welcomes artists with dances for camera or dance media in any style or genre to submit completed works for consideration. This year’s festival is particularly interested in films that explore issues of Race, Place and Identity created through the prism of film. We are also interested in artists of color who work both in front and behind the the camera as this year's festival will culminate with a celebration during Black History Month. The films will be presented in multiple venues which include a live opening performance and party, a collaboration with the NC Dance Project programs and the newly renovated Greensboro Performance Space. The 2022 Festival Programming will also have screening and workshops in the newly renovated UNCG School of Dance spaces. Additionally, this years Touring Program will travel to Corciano, Italy where we are producing an independent screen dance festival in collaboration with the Corciano Minister of Culture, Francesco Mangano, along with community stakeholders. GDFF continues to work with and build upon strong relationships with community stakeholders and this year we endeavor to expand those relationships even in our current global climate. The pandemic has forced us to evolve and re-evaluate the mission and priorities of the festival and we do this with artists and community in mind.
