poster
The 2018 inaugural one-day festival focused on the brown body and its representation on screen through two programs of films, selected student films, roundtable discussions, receptions, and an installation by dancer/visual artist Ayo Janeen Jackson.

The Festival's feature conversation was between Oscar-nominated producer Lisa Cortes, known for Precious (2009) and Shadowboxer (2005), and Bessie Award-winning dance critic Eva Yaa Asantewaa. The Festival was mentioned by the Miami New Times, discussing how screendance festivals have been fighting back against toxic masculinity.
