Screendance, videodance, dance film, cinedance?dance for camera. This hybrid form is covering an increasingly wider spectrum of opportunities, bringing together varied genres of cinema, visual and media arts, yet its basic language of expression remains movement and dance.
?Screendance is a provocation. It encourages an exploration of the unknown and the discovery of possibilities. For both the maker and the audience, the fun lies in discovering what the coming together of dance and film can bring.?
Dances with Camera is an international competition for the best short films focusing on the subject of dance, motion, physicality, and the pursuit of unrestrained forms of expression. The prizes (3.000, 2.000 and 1.000 PLN) are awarded by an international jury of dance and film experts. Additionally, Dances with Camera audience prize (1.500 PLN) will be awarded by the audience present at the competition showcase in Poznań.
Competition films will be showcased on 24?25 March 2015 at 8 pm at Studio Słodownia + 3 (Old Brewery, ul. Półwiejska 42) and again on 26?27 March at 5 pm at Charlie & Monroe Kino Malta.
Due to high interest of the public and high quality of submitted films, the organisers will hold an additional off-competition showing. Dances with Camera OVER TIME will take place on 29 March 2015 at Charlie&Monroe Kino Malta, from 4 to 6 pm.
