20th Anniversary Dance Camera West Fest

20th Anniversary Dance Camera West Fest

It’s the 20th Anniversary of Dance Camera West, and once again the renowned festival will screen the top selections chosen from around the world. Just 75 films were selected from a record number of 400 submissions! The six days of in-person and virtual screenings will happen January 6-15, 2022.

DCW is proud to once again partner with LA presenter Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz to present three nights of international films from January 6-9. Each film will make its World, US and/or LA Premiere. Tickets are $15 per night, or $30 for all three nights. DCW will also partner with the newly founded 2220 Arts & Archives(formerly The Bootleg Theater) from January 13-15, 2022 for three nights of premieres. Cost to attend is $15 for a single program, or $75 for a weekend pass. Artist Q & A’s will take place both weekends.

Enjoy new work from filmmakers and choreographers from France, Australia, Canada, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, and more. Each dance film brings a different discipline to the forefront, be it dance, choreography or cinematography, and some films present all three at once. There will also be exclusive interviews on stage with filmmakers, producers, dancers, choreographers and festival directors. Dance Camera West is not to be missed by dance lovers!

All films are Los Angeles premieres, with many World and American premieres, including a special world premiere screening of Undanced Dances Through Prison Walls During a Pandemic,and six films produced by the recipients of the DCW Finishing Fund for Underrepresented Filmmakers funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
