NBFF 2021 Official Selction

The official kNOwBOX dance Film Festival 2021 selection features 24 dance films of both national and international filmmakers from Australia, Bulgaria, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Republic of Korea, United Kingdom, and the United States. Films are experimental, multicultural, multigenre, and technological representations of dance. The films take the kNOwBOX dance tagline “say NO to the BOX” to unexpected places and offer stunning landscapes, emotional narratives, and thought-evoking reflections that invite the viewers familiar and new to dance and film to think outside of the box.

NBFF 2021 Open Call

​Submitting Your Project to the kNOwBOX dance Film Festival 2021.

 

In its 3rd year as an independent film festival, the mission for the NBFF is to curate dance films that explore an innovative approach to collaboration, mixed media, and interdisciplinary filmmaking. These films are selected based on challenging the possibilities of what dance can look like in video form. The NBFF values experimental, multicultural, multigenre, and technological dance films.
