Since the move to digital we've felt more connected to the F-O-R-M artists, audiences, and community—locally, nationally, and internationally. We're looking forward to sharing movement-based films by youth and emerging artists for a sixth year: this September you can expect to see more exciting and thoughtful intersections of movement and film that embody community and culture.
“We’ve witnessed a growing love for the union of movement and film over the past year—in a time where physical connection has felt so distant, this mutual admiration has linked so many of us across the globe. We see endless dance and movement posts on social media, where seeds of ideas are expressed in innovative and unique ways. This art form has become part of our daily lives, continuously filling our isolated reality with hope for what’s to come.
“As we gear up for our second digital festival, we find ourselves in passionate video calls and extended email threads with artists ready to share their ideas with this ever-growing community. As conversations full of excitement, intrigue, and fascination continue to unfold amongst this rising generation of artists, we are reminded why F-O-R-M exists in the first place.
“Needless to say, now more than ever the future of movement-on-screen feels limitless—and our 2021 festival will hold space for exactly that.”
—Sophia Wolfe (Artistic Director) & Tamar Tabori (Youth Curator)
