Welcome to the first film festival
by the blind, for the world.
blindDANCE Film Festival
Live IN Florida's capital city of Tallahassee, 2022 October
ABOUT THE EVENT
SEE the world of film in a way literally never have imagined... as filmmakers (who are blind, some with a small amount of usable vision) create new methods in the artform of storytelling and cinematography in film.
blindDANCE Film Festival accepts film entries (no cost for entry) throughout the year. Filmmakers experience opportunities for leadership as they produce films that show what the world looks like through their eyes.
IT IS FREE to submit a film (for legally blind filmmakers), AND you are ELIGIBLE for BIG prizes, like a scholarship to our film makers workshop on the beach in Puerto Penasco Mexico, in March 2022.
DID YOU KNOW that 9 out of 10 people who are legally blind still have some usable vision?
All finalists from this year's online international competition will be invited to a screening and VIP Celebrity party in Gainesville FL. Some crowd favorite blindDANCE filmmakers will have their travel costs to the festival sponsored in accordance with donations.
