This year’s festival is curated by Houston dance-makers Rosie Trump and Lydia Hance. The shorts come from all over the world, including Australia, Canada, Finland, Russia and Spain. Dance film has a strong contingent of artists in Houston, and the local community will be represented by entries from Lindsey Sarah Thompson, Lynn Lane and Ashley Horn, whose Jazzland short was filmed in an abandoned theme park in New Orleans after it was flooded by Hurricane Katrina. Other films are set on rooftops, underwater, in movie theaters and in bathroom stalls.
Sept. 15-16, 7 p.m., 2012
