San Francisco Dance Film Festival opens the 2022 festival on October 28 and runs through November 7. Global audiences will enjoy streaming access through Eventive alongside select in-person screenings in San Francisco, continuing availability for new online followers while marking a joyous return to theaters. In-theater programs include SALUTE TO SHORTS, a specially curated program of some of the more provocative, creative and joyous dance film shorts from this year’s Festival. BELLA is a resonant and timely portrait of artist/activist Bella Lewitzky. And LIFT tells the transformative story of Steven Melendez, who went from living in homeless shelters in NYC, to achieving worldwide recognition as a ballet dancer. Streaming globally on Eventive will be seven programs of international short dance films from 20 countries. Highlights include CARVING SPACES, featuring dance in daring new places unique to the screen and RITUALS & RIDDLES, bold narrative stories from four continents. Also streaming is the documentary THINGS THAT MAKE US MOVE showcasing how the renowned Daegu City Dance Company transform an entire theater – the stage, lobby, and stairwells – into an immersive, site-specific experience.
