DANCE@30FPS ON THE ROAD—The Ohio State University Dance-Film Festival is curated and presented by Mitchell Rose. 

The Northwest Film Center and Portland’s premiere dance company, BodyVox, are pleased to partner in presenting the first annual Contact Dance Film Festival, a showcase featuring award-wining collaborations between filmmakers, dancers, and choreographers from around the world. Portland has long been a mecca for dance of all forms. With films from the Northwest and across the globe—and an entire program curated by filmmaker and frequent BodyVox collaborator Mitchell Rose–the Contact Dance Film Festival represents the latest evolution of an art form bursting with hybrid creativity. The screenings will take place at both the Bodyvox Dance Center, 17th and NW Northrup, and the Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium. We hope you’ll hop between the two venues and that the series’ eclectic choices will get your 2016 off on just the right foot.

MITCHELL ROSE PRESENTS: DANCE@30FPS ON THE ROAD screens Thursday, January 7 at 7pm at BodyVox, Thursday, January 7 at 9pm in our Whitsell Auditorium, and Saturday, January 9 at 9pm in our Whitsell Auditorium.  The program is being presented as part of our Contact Dance series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
