TANZRAUSCHEN FESTIVAL WUPPERTAL
The dancescreen competition takes place in partnership with local dance film festivals. As the official festival partner of dancescreen in 2019, TANZRAUSCHEN organises a varied festival programme from 21-24 November 2019 at Rex Filmtheater in the dance and film city of Wuppertal. A special feature of this year's dancescreen competition is the Social Movers Award, a new prize category presented for the first time, which sees itself as a recognition of a cinematic exploration of socio-critical topics in dance film.
