The Los Angeles Dance Shorts Film Festival is celebrating its fifth year. The festival began in June of 2017 with the work of filmmakers from around the world and for a couple of years was held at the Mimoda dance studio in mid-city Los Angeles. Last year, due to the pandemic, the festival was held online. Everyone is hoping that the pandemic will soon be behind us, allowing the festival to be held in-person.
Organizers and Co-Directors Nicole Manoochehri and Olivia Mia Orozco just announced that beginning May 1, 2021 Los Angeles Dance Shorts Film Festival will be open for accepting submissions from dance filmmakers for a November 2021 film festival event. Manoochehri is a storyteller, dancer, filmmaker and the founder of the Los Angeles Dance Shorts Film Festival. Orozco is a dancer, actress, choreographer and filmmaker who became Co-director of the Los Angeles Dance Shorts Film Festival in 2019.
Here are the submission Dates:
