POOL 12 – OPEN CALL for International Dance Films

Posted filed underDance, Festivals, Film.

POOL is a recurring format for dance- and animationfilm. The Aim is to create a platform for dancers, choreographers, directors, artists, organizers and other interested people. POOL offers space for a mutual exchange of experiences, developing and advanced training, and presentations prospects. It`s a platform for those kinds of films, which picture dance not as a simple documentation, but more as a creative piece of art, using cuts and several other techniques for creation. We also like films which include every kind of non-dance movement in choreography. Moreover biographies of creators are less important or whether it`s a high or low budget film.

The POOL 12 jury is creating a film program and is selecting the winners PEARLS 12.
PEARLS are all winners of POOL – INTERNATIONALE TanzFilmPlattform BERLIN.

In addition to the competition, POOL offers a framework program with workshops, talks, showings and meetings about the topic media/film/dance.
