Multiplié Dance Film

Since 2015, DansiT has collaborated with the Minimalen Short Film Festival on the program Multiplié Dance Film, where we present a wide range of dance films from all over the world. Multiplié Dance Film has borrowed its name from the Multiplié Dance Festival, where the art of dance is bent and stretched into new, surprising, and engaging forms. The meeting between film and dance as aesthetic expressions constitutes an interesting art form that DansiT wants to help make visible. Multiplié Dance Film is programmed by DansiT in collaboration with an artistic committee through an open call on FilmFreeway.

An external expert jury will award a “best film” in the program, with the winner receiving a prize of 1000 Euro.
