In the ever-changing media landscape, creators are increasingly seeking different ways to tell their stories. New media and modern technology have entered the scene bringing new possibilities and insights. Dance film is no longer ‘movement on the black screen’, with new forms being developed such as installations, video clips, interactive projects and more.
This program is curated by Cinedans, one of the largest and most diverse dance film festivals in the world. It sees the ideal dance film as a true synthesis between the two media, and it emphasizes choreographies created specifically for the camera and on special film adaptations of existing dance performances.
