Every year, thousands of aspiring dancers enter one of the world's most prestigious ballet competitions, the Youth America Grand Prix, where lifelong dreams are at stake. Bess Kargman’s award-winning documentary, First Position, follows six young dancers as they prepare for a chance to enter the world of professional ballet, struggling through bloodied feet, near exhaustion and debilitating injuries, all while navigating the drama of adolescence.

Screendance: A New Visual Language

Screendance (Dance on Screen) is a unique cinematic experience that merges cinematography and choreography. It stirs the imagination and adds a whole new dimension to understanding movement. The screendance genre offers stimulating and sometimes provocative films that, as the name invokes, are never purely about dance nor wholly concerning film. They might, in other words, depict movement in a conceptual context, with all the eccentricities screendance offers as a storytelling medium.
