About the festival

Dance on screen is the first videodance festival that is created in Graz, in Austria.

It is an international dance film festival and includes a range of short films that celebrate the immediacy of dance combined with the intimacy of the camera’s eyes: short films, shown through movement.

Videodance got an universal language, since it is not only combined with a given tongue, but with a visual and more immediate emotional impact. There is a huge diversity making a product of short-dance-film, that has something to do both with the way to film a choreography and the way to create a choreography for the film.

The same concept of choreography becomes much wider: choreography is generated by filmed movements, but also by the movement of the camera, by the cutting, by the rhythm of the images, or by the colors or the landscapes.

Dance on screen wants to show this variety, looking for short-dance-films that manifest their own artistic aesthetics and are engaged in that breadth of strategy of creating choreography.
