This weekend, September 21-23, 2018, brings the Frame x Frame Film Festival — an unusual and kinetically-themed event with specific and rigorous parameters — to several Houston venues. A production of Frame Dance, an organization that produces original films, puts on live dance performances, and offers dance classes, Frame X Frame collects 21 films (from submissions) that are eight minutes or shorter and explore the relationship of the moving body and the camera. Frame Dance’s mission seeks to be adventurous and progressive through blending movement with technology, as well as egalitarian, by offering classes for all generations in the community. You can watch the organization’s films here.
