UPDATE: Cinedans FEST ’20 is canceled

The Cinedans team has followed the news about the recent guidelines of the Dutch government regarding the global COVID-19 outbreak. Gatherings of more than 100 people are not allowed until the end of March 2020. Following these guidelines, Cinedans FEST ’20 is canceled.

We were looking forward to this international edition and had prepared a wonderful and exciting programme. But the health and safety of our guests, the audience and the festival team are a priority to us. It is with a heavy heart that we have no other choice but to cancel this edition of Cinedans FEST. 

At the moment we are still deliberating on how to handle the news. We will keep you informed about future activities of the festival as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.
Cinedans Team


Upcoming March, we return with the 17th international edition of Cinedans FEST at Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. Join us for a celebration of dance film as contemporary film genre – physical, visual and poetic – from the newest developments to its origin and evolution.

Cinedans FEST ’20 presents works from all over the world and shows all dance styles and its correlating (sub)cultures. The selected dance films brush on a wide range of subjects like – gender diversity, disabilities, environmental issues, and the meaning and history of black identity through movement and dance. Cinedans also awards a prize for Best Dance Film, presents an exhibition of interactive installations and virtual reality projects, and organises an in-depth programme for dance enthusiasts and professionals alike. The full programme is now available!

Tickets are available on the website of Eye.
