Dances With Films

Dances With Films, now in its 14th year, champions the unflinching spirit at the very core of the independent film scene. While the vast majority of film fests rely heavily on celebrity, we have relied on the innovation, talent, creativity and sweat equity that revolutionized the entertainment industry. And that reliance continues to prove successful with alumni moving on to write and direct celebrity-studded vehicles, star in blockbuster movies and network series, produce multi-million dollar films and create hit TV shows. Oh....and we even have a few OSCAR® nominees... In a world of formulaic, homogenized film festivals Dances With Films continues to break the rules

Box[ur]shorts™ Film Festival

At box[ur]shorts™ Film Festival we literally “box your shorts”. All competing movies loop in artistic movie jukeboxes, at multiple locations all over the world and online. Awards” Golden, Silver, and Bronze box[ur]shorts™ as well as an Audience Award.
