A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

After an exciting first weekend of world, U.S. and LA Premieres, Dance Camera West continues its 20th anniversary season at the Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz in West LA. On each of three nights, Thursday, March 31, to Saturday, April 2, at 8 p.m., audiences will savor a collection of either internationally made documentaries, short films created by North American filmmakers or shorts hailing from the European continent.

Also on tap are live and pre-recorded conversations with filmmakers, producers, festival directors, choreographers and dancers. Plus, as the site is the local home to France and francophone culture, wine and cheese tastings will happen at intermissions. An added online bonus of more films is available to ticket purchasers.

One of the great things about dance on film and about dance film festivals in general is that the viewer gets to travel to interesting and exotic locations where these movies are shot. Coming from locations far and wide, we also witness a region’s particular point of view — how the North American perspective may be different from the European. Are these variations a function of different aesthetics? Of economics? Of something else?

Covid protocols maintained — masks, vaccination documentation or proof of testing results.
