Now in its 19th year, the International Screendance Festival (ISF) is directed and curated by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Douglas Rosenberg and explores the ever evolving relationship between cinema and dance. The 2014 ISF draws from over 90 submissions from 16 countries. The 2014 jurors, in addition to Douglas Rosenberg, were Gitta Wigro and Kora Radella.

Video works are presented in four categories:

  • Choreography for the Camera—original work made specifically for video or film or re-staged for the camera.
  • Documentaries—productions that include interviews or other educational elements in addition to choreography.
  • Experimental and Digital Technologies—work that extends the boundaries of dance and can exist only in video, film, or new technologies.   
  • Student Work—submissions produced while the filmmakers were students or by current students.

Make a day of it!

The free films begin at 2 PM, so make plans to spend a cool Saturday at the Nasher Museum.  Brunch is served in the Nasher Museum Café starting at 11 AM, and exhibitions can be viewed throughout the day.  For information about complimentary museum admission and café discounts, visit
