Welcome to Dance Film SF
Founded in 2010, Dance Film SF is a nonprofit organization that brings dance to new audiences through the presentation and development of dance-based media. In addition to presenting the award-winning San Francisco Dance Film Festival, DFSF’s year-round activities include special screenings, panels, and filmmaking workshops. Through our touring and outreach programs, we send highlight reels to international screens and dance media into local schools. DFSF also produces original dance films through our Co-Laboratory program, matching top choreographers with professional filmmakers and creating the time, space, and budget for them to collaborate.

Co-presented with the Gallery and BOXBLUR, this site-specific dance will mine the magic of everyday gesture. Program includes screening of “Finding Me,” films exploring identity and self expression through dance.
