San Francisco Dance Film Festival (SFDFF) presents a Virtual Reality Experience. Immerse yourself in dance as you virtually step inside the frame with this exhibition of 360°/VR films. Review the archives of Paul Taylor, stand onstage with Pacific Northwest Ballet, travel through the history of dance in Cuba, or fall into surreal realms of movement, music, and storytelling with the festival’s first virtual reality program. Thu-Sun, Oct 19-22, running continuously, FREE.

San Francisco Dance Film Festival (SFDFF) announces its 2017 selections for the 8th annual festival, featuring over 90 dance films from the Bay Area and around the world, running Thursday, October 19 through Sunday, October 22 across four venues. Along with screenings, the full festival will include opening and closing receptions, post-screening Q&As with filmmakers, brief live performances, and special presentations. In addition, for the first time this year, SFDFF will present an exhibition of VR 360 films where participants in headsets can virtually step inside the dances of Paul Taylor, relive the history of Cuban dance, and more. Also new on the bill is a dedicated venue for live performance captures, bringing important new works from Europe to San Francisco for the first time. An exciting collaboration with Catharine Clark Gallery will extend the festival with an exhibition of art/experimental films running from September 9 through October 28, 2017. The festival will wrap up with a celebration of Bay Area artists, including screenings of local shorts and the premieres of two new films from SFDFF’s annual filmmaking project, the Co-Laboratory. The closing program will culminate in an awards ceremony featuring, for the first time, cash prizes in eight categories.
