DANCE:FILM’s overall vision is to celebrate the relationship between dance and screen in all its manifestations.

The key aims are to:

  • To get more people dancing through the medium of the cinema.
  • To get cinemagoers to actively participate in dance by programming dance workshops relevant to the films shown.
  • To expose more people to dance in cinema by the juxtaposition of mainstream commercial films, documentaries, arthouse films and short programmes in the Festival programme.
  • To work together with a leading organisation in another art form (Filmhouse and Dance Base) to develop audiences for both art forms and to encourage a cross-over audience between the two venues and dance and film.
