Mana Contemporary Chicago, in Partnership with Chicago Dancemakers Forum and Montom Arts announces programming for the first annual Body + Camera Festival. The festival will feature over 40+ short films by emerging and established artists from around the world, that explore the intersection between the body and the moving image. The works will be presented over two days as short programs, installations and special live presentations. Programs will be free and open to the public but require a ticket available by advance reservations. Space is limited. For each program, we will be collecting donations to support CDF’s artist grants.
The festival is designed to provide audiences with a broad spectrum of perspectives from artists making contemporary works in the fields of experimental, dance and performance film. With the addition of special screenings and artist talks surrounding the main program, Body + Camera hopes to engage filmmakers and audiences alike in discussion around the festival’s themes.
