And massive thanks to the amazing @thehubatstmarys for your continous support and championing of local artists, producers, new work and dance! 😍
Coming to The Hub in late September, Lichfield’s first Screendance Festival will celebrate telling stories through dance and film. The Festival aims to showcase the experiences, ideas and perspectives of a diverse range of people and will explore the possibilities of capturing movement on film.
Mini ‘shorts’ (60 second films) will be available to view throughout The Hub at St Mary's using QR codes and will showcase innovative, creative and thought-provoking responses to the theme ‘telling my story’. The Festival will also feature three ‘Made Local Films’, created by local dance artists and community groups. These films will be screened at a special celebration evening in November and will then be available on social media.
There will also be opportunities to get involved with dance and film making workshops as part of the festival. Stay tuned for further announcements about the programme and opportunities to get involved.
