Seventy films from around the globe, including many U.S. premieres, offer Bay Area audiences a kaleidoscopic look at dance in its varied forms, both old and new. From the award-winning documentary on Rudolf Nureyev’s dramatic defection in Paris and a compelling story about Calisthenics, a unique form of competitive dancing in Australia, to topics featuring Memphis Jookin and hip-hop plus a revealing look at black dancers in the predominantly and historically white world of ballet, SFDFF’s line-up offer films that push the boundaries of great filmmaking and great dancing.
Join us in San Francisco for a celebration of dance, film, and community, October 20-23 at the Brava Theater Center. Can’t decide on which films to see? For the best value, BUY A FESTIVAL PASS and experience everything!
