Experience on-screen dance at Cinedans
"The most physical, dynamic and poetic film genre of our time: dance film!"
In the last decade, Cinedans has grown into the largest and most diverse dance-related film festival around the globe! It explores significant developments in the fusion of dance and film while also looking towards the future of these artistic genres. This exciting festival will include feature-length dance films, film shorts, dance documentaries and more!
Working via an open-call format, Cinedans receives over 250 submissions of original works that are then judged by a committee. After a selection is determined, the programme is further supplemented with self-curated films.
Dance on screen at the EYE Film Museum
The main venue is the EYE Film Museum, one of the most iconic and modern museums in Amsterdam. For five days, the best international dance-themed films, documentaries and interactive installations will be shown in and around EYE, Amsterdam. Cinedans will also feature interactive installations in venues like the nearby Tolhuistuin and others.
The festival is easy to get to by public transportation, whether locally or from other Dutch cities: make your way to Amsterdam Central Station and from there you can get the free ferry over to Amsterdam North!
Extra events at Cinedans
Besides the film programme at Cinedans there are extra events such as Q&As with the filmmakers, as well as workshops and lectures by professionals in the dance film industry. Cinedans typically ends with a bang: an award ceremony for the winning films of the festival!
