In/Motion celebrates dance performance within digital media platforms by encouraging artists to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration and by fostering innovation in the presentation of movement-based artworks. The festival has been successful in showcasing a broad spectrum of art from all over the world. Highlights from 2018 include:

  • A screening and Q&A of award-winning dance documentary Bobbi Jene and a masterclass with its featured performance artist Bobbi Jene Smith

  • An international juried short films screening and after party

  • A women-identifying panel featuring cutting edge artists/advocates including CEO of United States Artists, Deana Haggag and local award-winner Jenn Po’Chop Freeman

In/Motion works to share and expand the dance film medium with an emphasis on social justice.  The logo should represent a striving to educate and push boundaries beyond the studio and screen.
