Dallas Dance Film Festival (DDFF) is the first annual
dance film festival hosted in Dallas, TX created by
Dance Council of North Texas, the Dallas Public Library
and kNOwBOX dance.
The festival is free and will feature emerging and professional dance filmmakers. Post screening there will be a Q&A with the film creators.
Audience members will participate in the selection process for the “Best of the Fest” dance film maker.
DDFF aims to create community and accessibility through dance film by providing a platform for emerging and professional artists to connect and communicate with their audience and community at large.


Submissions will be evaluated based on demonstrated use of the camera and/or mobile devices that highlight dance differently from live performance,
such that the dance cannot be viewed in the same way outside of the film. Selected works will also demonstrate inventiveness and originality,

cohesiveness and clarity of artistic intention, quality of choreography, performance, cinematography, and editing in relationship to the stated artistic intent.
Artists are responsible for holding copyright permission for any elements used in the film that require permission such as music, text, images.
