FilmDance Festival was a thirteen-day film festival that occurred at the Public Theater in New York from November 29 to December 11, 1983. Sponsored by the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, the festival’s featured works were curated by Amy Greenfield and Elaine Summers.


In the two weeks it took place, the FilmDance festival has been said to have the most ambitious and comprehensive collection of film dances ever known.[1] It featured over 100 films and covered eighty-nine years worth of film-dance. The festival opened with a program called Turn-of-the-Century Film and A Life in Dance, which included movies from the 1890s and early 1900s, and Grace, a film which featured Grace DeCarlton Ross, a circus performer and silent-screen actress who taught dance in Maine. Other films that were featured were Annabelle the Dancer (1894) by the Thomas Edison Company, Sticks on the Move by Elisabeth Ross and Pooh Kaye, and Transport by Amy Greenfield.[2][3]

Amy Greenfield also published a catalogue for the FilmDance festival. It included essays and illustrations about the history and aesthetics of film-dance. Proceeds made from the catalogue supported the festival.
