Next Up

This November the best action sports filmmakers, iconic athletes, and culture enthusiasts will descend upon Salt Lake City for the 13th annual X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival. This year's event will run November 8-11, 2012, (the weekend of Veteran's Day) with screening and party headquarters at The Depot 13 North 4th West. (

The deadline for all entries is quickly approaching.

Visit to submit your film by September 21st. We will announce this year's selection on October 15th to allow ample time to make travel arrangements. We are requiring attendance by either the filmmaker or some other representative that was directly involved in the making of the film (athlete, producer, etc...). This helps your film and the festival with the prestige and attention they both deserve.


The X-Dance Institute is taking center stage this year with three seminars covering Digital Distribution, Crowd Funding, and the hot new gear from GoPro. Industry experts will be conducting these seminars that will be produced for the web. All levels and types of filmmakers (and the public) are welcome!

SwagTown is our industry tradeshow. This year SwagTown will move into its own space in the Depot. Get the sponsors from your films into this part of the event to give them an even bigger bang for their buck!! Have your sponsors sell and market your film and their product at SwagTown!

The X-Dance Music Series will see its debut this year! Every night during the festival there will be a concert and party! Bring your “festival liver”. The public is invited. Filmmakers are free!

X-Dance has continued to grow in reach and prestige every year. This year we are projecting even greater participation and another year of record-breaking attendance. If you don't have a film for this year's festival, I'm sure you know friends and colleagues who do. Spread the word and come out to support our industry while enjoying the best action sports films in the world.
