First Encounters is a series of short dance films looking at the first moment of a potential romantic relationship or a first date situation. Each of the stories were taken from stories volunteered by the general public.
The premier screening took place in May 2018 at the University of Chester.
The evening was set up much like a speed dating event. Audience members had the opportunity to meet and talk to new people whilst experiencing each film. At each station the audience members had 5 minutes before moving on to the next and meeting someone new!
