This month’s Hivery Circle will feature the creative process of dance filmmaking.
We’re excited to showcase a program of short dance films by female filmmakers presented by San Francisco Dance Film Festival, including a short film by Grace Kraaijvanger, our Founder + CEO.
On stage, Grace will be joined by Festival Founder Greta Schoenberg and other local dance filmmakers. Together, they will share their stories of dance, creativity, passion, and giving back.
Join us for a not-to-miss summer gathering that celebrates creativity! Guests will enjoy sips by Liana Estates and lite bites by Farmhouse Lab. This Tuesday evening happy hour is the perfect way to celebrate #womendoingcoolstuff.
