BOOMERANG by Martha Gregory, Noah Fowler and Kenny Arthur Polyak.

Dance Camera West’s Dance Media Film Festival enters its 16th season screening cinema that pushes the boundaries of dance film. Well-known names from the commercial world such as Wade Robson and Tyce Diorio present shorts, while documentaries of major players such as artistic director, choreographer and dancer Bill T. Jones and Storyboard P, a Brooklyn street dancer whose liquid moves border on the poetic, make for edge-of-your-seat viewing. April 20-23; UCLA’s Royce Hall, Kaufman Hall and Fowler Museum, 323-620-3495; dancecamerawest.org.
