behind the scenes

Deutsches Tanzarchiv Köln is calling for entries of dance film documentaries for the 2006 Behind the Scenes Festival.

The film camera explores the world of dance.

It provides insights into the development of a choreography or the daily rehearsals of a dance company, offers us a many-faceted picture, composed of interviews, rehearsal shots, documents and archive materials, of the life and works of a dancer or choreographer. The camera becomes the chronicler of dance.

The works presented in the programmes of the BEHIND THE SCENES festival, though, offer more than just a look ‘behind the scenes’, more than just documentation and information. They are also examples of ambitious cinematic reflections on the most transitory of arts – dance.

For the second time this worldwide one and only festival on dance in documentaries – initiated and organized by the Deutsches Tanzarchiv Köln (German Dance Archives) – will be held from October 18 – 20 2006 in Cologne.

Deadline for submissions:
May 31st, 2006
