3. international Dance Film Festival Brussels

The festival l’art difficile de filmer la danse (19 & 20 september 2014) focuses on the specific relationship between dance and film. The festival aims to be an important international platform for choreographers and filmmakers. For the selection of the recent dance films, the art of filming and the translation or fusion of the different disciplines to create an independant artistic cinamatographic work will be considered. The public will award the most appreciated film. The curators of the dansfilmfestival brussels are Stefanie Bodien and Wolfgang Kolb. The organizers are Redorangeproductions, Danscentrumjette, Contredanse and the Cinematek brussels. 

The festival consists of three parts: historical dancefilms, recent dancefilms and the Special
