dancescreen 2022 Partner
dancescreen was proud to partner with Cinedans, the only organisation in the Netherlands dedicated entirely to dance film. We teamed up to select and present the best and latest international dance film shorts and performance relays, as well as offer development and network opportunities for both young and established filmmakers.
Founded in 2003, Cinedans is the only organization in the Netherlands dedicated entirely to dance film and specialises in presenting, developing and distributing the genre. The mission of Cinedans is to promote and stimulate the production of films, stage performances and multimedia productions with dance as a central theme, thereby raising the profile of dance in film and other media and connecting to a broad audience in the Netherlands and abroad. Dance film is a genre that is constantly evolving. Cinedans' ambition is to stimulate and showcase these developments.
Cinedans operates through four basic pillars in order to achieve its goals: Cinedans FEST, Cinedans LAB, Cinedans TOUR and Cinedans WEB.
Acclaimed in the Netherlands and around the world, Cinedans FEST has celebrated dance film as an art form since 2003. Seeing the pinnacle of the genre as a true synthesis between movement and cinematography, Cinedans aims to raise profiles and stretch boundaries, connecting cutting-edge productions with worldwide audiences. In addition to an extensive and diverse film programme, Cinedans FEST presents crossover projects and media installations, as well as organizing masterclasses, pitches, debates and workshops for both professionals and the general public.
