Celebrating Ballet on Film: Our Salute to the Artistry of San Francisco Ballet’s Dancers
Special Thanks to Event Co-Sponsors: Susan Dosetter & Alison and Michael Mauzé
Join the Museum of Performance + Design, San Francisco Dance Film Festival and dancers from San Francisco Ballet for an evening of short dance films and reception to benefit MP+D and SFDFF, two organizations that help capture, promote and preserve dance.
This special evening features short dance films, screened at SFDFF, that were created over the years with and by artists from San Francisco Ballet and salutes the creative spirit of a unique community of artists who have made a thrilling leap from the stage to the screen, including the following:
Julia Adam | Dores Andre | Sean Bennett | Joan Boada | Kimberly Braylock | Frances Chung | Diego Cruz | Daniel Deivision-Oliveira | Sasha De Sola | Damir Emric | Dana Genshaft | Jordan Hammond | Tiit Helimets | Ellen Rose Hummel | Davit Karapetyan | Madison Keesler | Maria Kochetkova | Muriel Maffre | Johnathan Mangosing | Pascal Molat | Gennadi Nedvigin | Garen Scribner | Damian Smith | Christopher Stowell | Sarah Van Patten | Joseph Walsh | Lonnie Weeks | Quinn Wharton | Vanessa Zahorian | Wanting Zhao
Seen through the lenses of SFDFF and MP+D, dance films uniquely re-imagine what dance performance can be today while defying the ephemeral quality of the art form. SFDFF and MP+D are thrilled to celebrate in this way the artists of San Francisco Ballet and their contribution to the growing field of dance on film.
