The 6th 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 2020 Festival Programming will also have screening and workshops in the newly renovated UNCG School of Dance spaces. Audience selections will also participate in the 5th annual In/Out Dance Festival in Burkina Faso, WA in 2020 Submissions should be no more than 15 minutes and created within the past 3 years.

Greensboro Dance Film Festival proudly accepts entries via, the world's best online submission platform. FilmFreeway offers free HD online screeners, unlimited video storage, digital press kits, and more.
