ScreenDance Festival Stockholm 2018


Every year the International Dance Day is celebrated all over the world. For that reason for the fifth year in a row, ScreenDance Festival in Sweden will also celebrate this day by conducting a packed week with: dance films, workshops/labs, lectures and discussions panels.

This year we are very proud to present more than 85 contemporary films and submissions. Beautiful, exciting, different, amusing and truly inspiring works from all around the world. We are looking forward to have a public talk with a couple of the people behind some of these films in our festival. Like Sima Gonsai, who´s been making films in collaborations with professional ballet dancers and professionals dancers with disabilities. Here we present the Freefall trilogy and a behind the scenes from her recently film “We’re Here”. Meet also Helena Karabuda, director and last year winner with her film  “The Eye Of The Norm” and also the director Felipe Lira with his film “If we travel we changed”. We will also have a talk with Lorraine Féline after her film Le Ballet Mécanique, which is about the mechanics that are implemented in the manufacture of the pointe ballet shoes.

On Sunday we complete our program  presenting  ScreenDance Festival Award Ceremony where we present all the Swedish films as well as the two winners. These both filmmakers will be awarded a two week residency in Tranås, Sweden. This thanks to our partners Kultivera.

The news this year is that we decided to present two dance films in VR 360°. Both films can be seen Saturday and Sunday 15.00 – 16.00 and in between the evening program.

Most of our programs are at Dansmuseet like before, but we are also happy to have a new collaboration on Sunday with the cinema Bio Rio. Here we present among others films “Ingmar Bergman genom koreografens öga” by Fredrik Stattin. Film where four of Sweden’s most innovative choreographers travel to Ingmar Bergman’s home on Fårö to explore and get inspired.

Like earlier we give you a package of really short films in our 1-Minute selection and animations in the GIF-dance selection as well as a set of dance films curated by our collaborating festivals in Italy, Breaking 8 and Festival de Videodanza de Palma, Spain.
