Next Dance Cinema is part of Next Fest NW, Velocity’s annual new works series celebrating what’s happening in contemporary dance performance and cinema. Selected works will be screened on December 4 at Northwest Film Forum.

Video will be accepted in the following categories: staged work remade for the camera (not documentation), choreography created specifically for the camera, as well as the moving body articulated through animation, new media, and installation.
