With that in mind, we want to create a vibrant military and veterans community at DeSales, inclusive of all.

Award Winning Films Screened in Annual Screendance Festival

Join the Dance and TV/Film departments for the annual Screendance Festival on Thursday, November 15 (8:00 PM) and Sunday November 18 (8:00 PM) in the Gambet Center on the DeSales University Center Valley campus.

The DeSales Screendance Festival showcases the exciting art form of Screen-dance, a hybrid art form of dance and film that blends the technological craft of filmmaking with the vibrancy and brilliance of human movement.

The festival is a two-night event.  It opens on Thursday, November 15 at 8:00 PM with a screening of international, award-winning dance films selected in partnership with the Dance Films Association.  The festival then continues three days later on Sunday night, November 18 at 8:00 PM for a screening of the slate of student films created in the very popular 48-Hour Screendance Challenge.

In an effort designed to foster collaborations between the DeSales University Dance, Theatre and TV/Film majors, students work together to conceive, choreograph, light, shoot and edit a film in just 48 hours.  The dance films created in the 48-Hour Screendance Challenge will be adjudicated and festival awards will be announced.

The DeSales University Screendance Festival screenings are free events.  However tickets are required and must be acquired in advance.   Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
