CAPITOL is a destination for Dancinephiles who want to see top quality technique, storytelling and creative expression on the big screen, and cultivate their own skills by connecting with industry leaders and those who are passionate about what they do. It's a total love-fest and dancefilm geek out! LIVE and ONLINE events will be happening October 9-12 2020. Live events will be hosted at Eaton Workshop in Downtown Washington, D.C. From the Director, Jen Ray: "The Dance & Cinema Festivals grew out of a desire to connect those involved & interested in the arts & industries of Dance & Cinema. These art forms have incredible potential to communicate through movement & not only move viewers emotionally, but amplify & clarify each other when intelligently combined. Dance and Film, through their science & essence, beautifully enable & and elevate each other. The Festivals are focused on celebrating & sharing a high calibre & diverse range of programming."
