Join us for the Motion State Dance Film Series, the only year-long, traveling short film festival in New England devoted to showcasing the diversity of contemporary creative voices exploring the medium of choreography for the camera. For Season 3 we are excited to share a diverse collection of compelling and thought-provoking international films, representing artists from Canada, Estonia, Iceland, Israel, and the USA.

The Motion State Dance Film Series is the only year-long, traveling short film festival in New England devoted to showcasing the diversity of contemporary creative voices exploring the medium of choreography for the camera. By taking the festival “on the road” and into non-traditional film venues, such as art galleries, music halls, performing arts theaters, and university classrooms, the Motion State Dance Film Series seeks to expose the films and filmmakers to new audiences. Every screening is followed by a public Q & A with the curators.
The Motion State Dance Festival is a movement-based performance festival designed to introduce New England audiences to the latest in contemporary dance. This celebration of contemporary performance brings local and national artists together to share their boundary-pushing creative explorations with growing New England Dance audiences.
