Opine Dance Film Festival is an annual event that celebrates dance film makers nationally and internationally who are creating work with meaning. We love witnessing an artist that creates with a purpose, has a story to tell, and puts their identity into every inch of their craft.


The annual festival includes a professional adjudicated program. All submissions go through a curation process by a panel of jurors. The jury is comprised of local choreographers, filmmakers, and performing artists.


The professional, adjudicated program will accept dance film submissions from Screendance artists nationally and internationally. The title of "Festival Favorite" will be awarded at the end of the program. ​​


We are also excited to announce that we have relocated the festival in its 5th year to Philadelphia, PA!

 As there are currently no other adjudicated dance film festivals happening in the city, we are hoping to bring Screendance and dance film to the Philly community and grow it's ever evolving presence!
