Co-Laboratory Funding Announced

SFDFF is honored and thrilled to announce that the Kenneth Rainin Foundation recently selected the festival’s Co-Laboratory program for a RENEW Program grant. This significant multi-year award is designed to support ongoing programs which support multiple artists. SFDFF’s successful Co-Laboratory program was acknowledged for its strong passion for and commitment to the San Francisco Bay Area performing arts community.

Artists for the 2015 Co-Laboratory program will be announced this summer. The short dance films that will be created by San Francisco Bay Area choreographers, dancers, composers and filmmakers for the Co-Laboratory program will be premiered on the last night of the film festival, October 11, at the Brava Theater Center.
