Each film is 4-5 minutes in length and range from funny to breathtaking and from tap to social dance. The event is free and open to the public. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency and the Mass Cultural Council’s Project and Festivals grants.
