The Moving Body–Moving Image Festival gives voice to social justice themes in the hybrid form of filmmaking, also called ScreenDance. The 2018 inaugural one-day festival will focus on the brown body and its representation on screen.

The festival’s featured artist is Arthur Jafa, the Sundance Film Festival award-winning cinematographer of Julie Dash’s seminal Daughters of the Dust and Spike Lee’s Crooklyn. He is also a critically acclaimed director whose recent work includes the experimental Love is the Message, the Message is Death and JAY-Z’s music video, “4:44.” The day will feature two programs of films, selected student films, roundtable discussions, and an installation by Ayo Janeen Jackson. Moderators and speakers include Bessie Award-winning dance critic Eva Yaa Asantewaa.

Selected films will be announced in February.​
