Jazz Dance Film Fest: spreading vintage jazz music and dancing to the world, one video at a time! Tell a story, or just show off your moves! Collaborate with friends, or do it on your own! Just pick up a camera and start filming... lights, camera, DANCE!
JDFF is the premier jazz dance music video contest, showcasing jazz music and jazz dancing for dancers and non-dancers alike. Help spread the joy of jazz, in song and dance!
To compete, you will need to create a video and submit it to the contest (online and mail options are available). Select from the list of allowed music, or partner with a jazz band that you know (but be sure to check out the FAQ and Fine Print before you begin)! Videos must include some form of vintage jazz dancing, including, but not limited to: Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Tap Dancing, Solo Jazz, and the Charleston.
On August 9th, 2013, we will be screening all the videos in Seattle, at the Seattle Lindy Exchange. Everyone is welcome to attend!
