Dance Films Catalogue: Edition No. 2

The 2nd edition of the Dance Films Catalogue with five more titles is available now!

Dance and cinema have a long shared history thanks to their common interest: the motion of bodies and energies. With today’s enhanced digital video technologies and the current restrictions on international exchange, dance is reimagining itself in many different spaces, diving into archival material and creating new forms.  

The Dance Films Catalogue aims to promote the work of choreographers, dancers and directors. It is a resource for Dance film festivals, Arts centers, and Universities to discover new works, new artists and present them. 

It features films and documentaries by and with artists of various backgrounds. 

Download the catalogue below for the details such as synopsis, price range, and contact, and do not hesitate to email us at dancefilms@frenchculture.org 

The online catalogue will be updated regularly with new features all along the year. Stay tuned! 

In addition to five more titles, all the films of the first edition are still included.
