The Moving Body–Moving Image Festival gives voice to social justice themes in the hybrid form of filmmaking, also called ScreenDance. The 2018 inaugural one-day festival will focus 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 will be between Oscar-nominated producer Lisa Cortes, known for Precious(2009) and Shadowboxer (2005), and Bessie Award-winning dance critic Eva Yaa Asantewaa.

Selected films include Afro Promo #1 KINGLADY by Nora Chipaumire; Jury Award Winner of ScreenDance Miami Black Stain by director Tiffany Rhynard and choreographer Trent D. Williams; Son Du Serpent, a film from Benin by Feri de Geus and Tami Ravid; and many other films from around the world.

Moving Body–Moving Image is curated by Gabri Christa, assistant professor of professional practice and co-sponsored by the Athena Film Festival and the Provost's office.
