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.

Feature Film

Maurice Hines: Bring Them Back is an intimate portrait of an outspoken showman who with humor and grace has navigated the highs and lows of a seven-decade career, and a complex relationship with his superstar brother Gregory Hines. For more information on this film and the other program in our 2020 festival lineup, visit our Program Page.

Artists bring people together, no matter the art form. From live dance, to concerts, theater, and film screenings, people gather to experience the power and hope of artistic expression. Under the current crisis, these experiences are painfully disrupted. Yet, with your help, we at Dance Film SF are determined to weather the storm and continue to find unique ways to bring people together to celebrate the beauty and power of dance through film. Please donate now—we need your help more than ever to help keep us afloat as we prepare for an exciting 2020 fall festival.
