Dance Council of North Texas (DCNT) partners with kNOwBOX dance and the Dallas Public Library to host the inaugural Dallas Dance Film Festival (DDFF) at Fretz Park!
Recognizing the need for more digital dance exposure, kNOwBOX and DCNT created the Dallas Dance Film Festival to promote and support local and international emerging and professional dance filmmakers and to provide an affordable platform for them to share their work. The festival also offers the community at large a
new way to observe and experience dance.
Join us as we begin this journey into a new phase of dance in north Texas!


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.
