"Doll Factory" is an upcoming short drama ballet film. It is slated to come out later in the year. Many of the Dance Mums dancers have roles in the film. The young filmmakers are running a Kickstarter funding campaign right now to raise money for production and to release the film.
An official trailer for the film was released in March 2016. A release date for the film is still to be decided.
Doll Factory is set in December 1999 in the fictional town of Fielson, Northern England where we meet twelve-year-old Aliza (Tayluer Amos), a ballet dancer who is trained by her father Viktor. With Aliza having the lead in the winter showcase, Viktor has extremely high expectations of Aliza's performance, expectations that Aliza's mother Rita doesn't agree with. With Rita warning Viktor for his applied pressure, Rita fails as she tries to talk Aliza out of over working herself at home and Rita is left to sit and watch Aliza train vigorously. With Aliza determined to perform the lead and the ending solo, Aliza is stuck between achieving a performance of a lifetime and knowing when her body has sacrificed enough.
