The films in this collection were pieced together with cultural storytelling in mind. A curatorial experience of dance films and talent from around the globe, the selection pays close attention to our regional neighbors and beyond, and their continuously growing body of work from both established and emerging filmmakers. Ranging from documentaries to experimental films, the selection features both award-winning and up-and-coming titles rooted in the avant-garde.
