The films embrace the theme for LDIF22, which is ‘In Situ: Responding to Space, Place, People and Time.’ They will be on show at locations around the city during the festival, including the big screen on DMU’s Vijay Patel Building, as well as online.

LDIF22 takes place from Friday 29 April to Sunday 8 May in venues across Leicester. Showcasing high quality dance that celebrates diversity and intersectional identities, to date LDIF has supported the work of 280 artists from more than 46 countries.

Check out the full programme of events on the Serendipity website.
