This week Dare to Dance in Public Film Festival gives a shout out to the filmmakers whose exemplary work was identified by the panel of judges for Honorable Mentions. We applaud these films for their beautiful dancing, amazing use of sites, camera work, editing, and overall vision and bravery. Congratulations Honorable Mentions! Once again, all the work identified by D2D, whether it was given a specific award or received an Honorable Mention is of a commendable caliber, with the distinction that the judges elected that awards to go to films with the presence of a discernable public.
And, I am very happy to say that we have now selected a Best Student Film! After running into some issues with one of the submissions, and after being urged by some very persuasive young filmmakers we decided to go back to the drawing board…
