Curatorial Criteria
Curatorial Criteria: We're interested in film and video works that integrate dance and cinematography. When choosing works for exhibition and installation we consider thoughtful forms and themes, investigative / innovative / experimental approaches, production values, audience appeal, and how the piece will fit with or complement others we are considering. None of these criteria is a must; none are more important than the others; excellence in any one or two areas may be sufficient for acceptance. Shorts are preferred. Documentaries and animations will be considered. Note that we are not interested in simple recordings of dance on a proscenium stage — cinematic elements must be an integral part of the entry.
Film, Video, Camera, Cinema?
We thought about calling ourselves a Dance Film Festival, a Video Dance Festival, a Dance Video Festival, a ScreenDance Festival, or a Dance for Camera Festival but we settled on Festival of Dance Cinema because that seems to cover the bases best.
