ABOUT THE PROJECT

Ljósið (The Light) featuring Barton Cowperthwaite and Brandon Coleman with choreography by Dayna Ann DeFilippis, has currently screened at several film festivals internationally. The film made its World Premiere at the 2013 Palm Springs International Shortsfest, the largest Short Film Festival in the US. This piece was one of over 330 films selected from 3,500+ submissions.

Ljósið (The Light) was also an official selection at the 2013 Lady Filmmakers Film Festival, an event dedicated toward recognizing women holding top crew positions in film, and was one of 20 selected films out of over 100 for the 2013 Oklahoma OK Dance Film Festival. The programmers from Inside Out Film Festival in Toronto, the largest LGBT Film Festival in Canada and third largest in the world, and the Pink Apple Film Festival, an LGBT Festival in Zurich, Germany, personally requested Ljósið (The Light) for submission to their festivals.

In May 2014, Ljósið (The Light) screened at the Petaluma Film Festival in San Francisco and at the DOTA Dance Festival in New York City.
