San Francisco Dance Film Festival Recommended

When: Nov. 6-9 2014
Price: $13-$20 per program


Dance might be the most versatile of all human art forms. Yet given the vast array of stylistic possibilities, most of us watch dance in one of two settings — on a stage or in a circle. The San Francisco Dance Film Festival brings the art to the screen. The festival is celebrating its fifth anniversary, so the idea isn't entirely new, but it's underutilized enough to feel fresh. Standouts this year tell complete stories or offer a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process. A Juice Box Afternoon explores the intersection of flight and love through the eyes of aviator couple Anne Morrow and Charles Lindbergh. A Day in the Life tells the story of a busy pair of shoes, and The Man Behind the Throne documents the work of Vincent Paterson, who is relatively unknown but choreographed for Madonna and Michael Jackson.

The San Francisco Dance Film Festival opens at 7 p.m. Nov. 6 and ends Sunday at Brava Theater Center, 2781 24th St., S.F. $13-$20; 844-567-3333 or

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
