Jazz Dance Film Fest: spreading vintage jazz music and dancing to the world, one video at a time! Lights, camera, DANCE!

What is the Jazz Dance Film Fest?

The Jazz Dance Film Fest, held annually since 2009, is the only film festival dedicated to jazz music and dancing. All submitted films are short films, usually the length of a song. Submitted films are screened at the festival's Screening event which occurs during the Seattle Lindy Exchange, and are subsequently posted online. Awards for the winning films are also given out at the Screening event.

The festival has already arranged with some musicians to be able to use their music for the contest, so that entrants don't have to. If you are interested in creating and submitting an entry, read on!
