In The Time before Corona, the Segal Film Festival had evolved into the premier US event for new film and video work focusing on theatre and performance. Its mission was to invite experimental and established theatre makers to present work created for the screen – not filmed archival recordings–to audiences and industry professionals from around the world. During and after The Time of Corona the festival took on a new meaning. The 2022 Segal Center Film Festival on Theatre and Performance presented over 100 screenings from over 60 countries, many theatre artists engaged in zoom and DIY projects created from home or outside theatres.

It is time again to share an overview of some of the most compelling works created for the screen by theatre artists from around the world during the last two years. The Segal Film Festival will serve again as an archive and memory capsule for works on screen by theatre artists.
