From April 14 to April 30
Cinedans International Film, Dance and Media Festival is a unique festival – both in The Netherlands as well as abroad. Dance films are the central focus. Cinedans describes a “dance film” as a true synthesis between two different media – dance and cinematography. At Cinedans the emphasis will lie on choreographies created specifically for the camera and on special film adaptations of existing dance performances. Furthermore, a selection of special documentaries and retrospectives will be shown. During the festival approximately eighty films from all over the world will be screened. In addition to the film programme, there will be readings, debates and workshops to attend.
In the ever-changing landscape of media, the creators are increasingly seeking different ways of telling their stories. New media and modern technology have entered the scene – and there are new possibilities and changing insights. Dance film is no longer “movement on the black screen”, new forms are developing: installations, video clips, interactive projects … Contemporary “dance films” are often autonomous pieces of art with a language of their own and an expressiveness that cannot be pigeonholed. Cinedans closely follows this movement and in addition to the film programme focuses on different forms of crossover projects and media installations with movement, as it’s main subject.
Cinedans is an annual festival that takes place in the month December in Amsterdam. In 2011 it will take place from 1-4th in Amsterdam theatre ‘De Balie’. Deadline entry call: May 1st 2011.
Cinedans also organizes “Cinedans on tour” and travels across the world to screen a selection of the film programme. Throughout the year Cinedans offers education projects to secondary schools.
