EXPANDS TO 11 DAYS
YEAR 16 will mark a dramatic change for Dances With
Films as the fest expands to 11 days at the Chinese Theatres. Electrifying
the Hollywood film community with a celebration teeming with remarkable
films and refreshingly free
of the wheeling, dealing, and politics that can too often pollute
the creative experience. At DWF, every aspect of the festival is
driven by an unflinching slogan: “No politics. No stars. No
sh*t.” The result is an unforgettable 11 day festival that
puts great material in front of powerful people and truly allows
a filmmaker’s work to speak for itself. DWF’s success
comes not from a slew of big “names” populating its
red carpet but from a formidable list of career launches.
