are several ways you can get involved in helping the film:
We would like the film to be seen by as many people as possible around
the world so we would love if you could watch it yourself and recommend
it to others. By spreading the word about our film, you are contributing
to introducing more and more people to African Dance and raising interest
in African Culture. Click order to find out
about different options for purchasing a VHS copy of the film for
individuals and organizations.
film is an invaluable resource for dancers, choreographers, dance
historians, critics, anthropologists and all those interested in African
culture. We would love to bring the film to its audiences on the big
screen at your school, local cinema, conference, dance/film festival,
community center, etc. Together with Dance Films Association, we can
even help you to organize a film/video series on African Dance or
other types of Dance. "African Dance: Sand, Drum and Shostakovich"
will be part of the "Mostly Africa" Program at the Dance
on Camera Festival 2003 in New York City. It is possible to bring
this program or any other festival program to your venue. Please,
e-mail your ideas and proposals to email@example.com

We need your ideas about different ways to distribute the film, broadcast
it and bring it to a diverse range of audiences. Please, e-mail all
your ideas to
also need your financial assistance. We are still paying our bills
and trying to raise $10,000 to release our film on DVD in both English
and French. The DVD release will allow us to better preserve
the film because, as you may know, the tape format tends to deteriorate
with time, and to expand our audiences
around the world. Since half of the companies in the film are French
speaking, we feel that it is our responsibility to bring the film
to the audiences of their countries in their native language.

can be tax-deductible.
