Dance on Screen

Cinedans FEST 2019 was a spectacular celebration of dance on screen at Eye and A-Lab in Amsterdam, that took place 8 – 10 March 2019. Besides Dutch and international dance films and documentaries, Cinedans presented a variety of interactive installations, VR projects, presentations, debates and workshops. During Cinedans FEST 2019 Practice & Potential edition we focused on research and development, as well as innovative techniques in dance film, through a variety of presentations, talks and workshops.

Highlights included: New Dutch, featuring the best Dutch dance shorts, Clara van Gool’s new dance feature The Beast in the Jungle, the Dutch premiere of the feature-length documentary on the world-famous Canadian dancer and choreographer Louise Lecavalier, the premiere of the documentary Mitten about Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and a special programme showing a selection of the legendary films of Maya Deren.
