We are excited to announce that our dance film, Arms (directed by Tobias Shearer, music by Dirty Art Club, and choreography by Audrey Baran) was awarded an Honorable Mention at the Movies by Movers Festival, Vol. IV! Nearly 50 films applied to the festival from all over the world, and about a dozen were selected to be part of the shorts program, including our own Arms. Audrey and Toby attended the festival in Winston Salem on December 7th, and had the privilage to watch these amazing films. Audiences from two different showings voted and the winners were announced the following day. Baran Dance’s submission is one of only four films receiving an Honorable Mention! We couldn’t be happier to be among such an innovative group of artists, and look forward to creating more dance-on-film work, as well as next year’s festival!
