Every year POOL presents a selection of fascinating dance film productions from all over the world, making the event a meeting place for creatives involved in the fields of dance, film, fashion and advertisement. The focus of the festival is on films that not only record dance but create independent film choreographies through the intense interplay between dance and cinematic tools like camera and editing. This year, the festival will take place from September 8–12 at DOCK 11 in Berlin.
All dancers, choreographers, filmmakers and artists are invited to apply with short film choreographies and dance animations. Films should not be longer than 30 minutes and should not be simply documentation of a dance piece.
The POOL 20 jury will create a film programme from all submissions and select the winning films, the PEARLS 20. PEARLS are the equal winner films of POOL – International TanzFilmFestival Berlin and will be honored with prize money. Outstanding artists who are continuously working in the field of dance film will be awarded with the Pearls Artist Prize.
Deadline: June 14, 2020
