We get lots of requests for publicity posts, too many to do them all, but what made us decide to put these details up were 2 quotes:

Dance Camera West seems to me to be the best festival anywhere in the world.
– Bob Lockyer, Executive Producer, BBC

No venue or series offers a more exciting array of major international choreographers… Stunning in its variety… Powerful performances… Consistently surprising… Funny, sexy and endlessly resourceful…
– Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times

More quotes

Hard to argue with those two I think, so here you go and good luck all who enter…

Final Deadline: January 31, 2013

Dance Camera West is excited to celebrate the 12th Annual DCW Dance Media Film Festival with “Get Wet,” a celebration of screen dance, live dance, and water. Featuring DCW’s traditional roster of new international dance films, “Get Wet” will include live, site-specific dance works from world-renowned choreographers and dancers. Events and performances and screenings will be located at fountains in Los Angeles, including the majestic Getty Museum. Our green inspired festival will be sure to inform audiences about dance, film and the preservation of water.

Dance Camera West welcomes dance media in any dance style or genre. Categories include: screendance, short films, features, documentary, installations, and interactive dance media.
