For 10 years in a row, AVDP - International Dance Film Festival welcomes dance films of different genres and lengths, dance documentaries, workshops and multimedia performances, bringing to the force the art of videodance. AVDP highlights the synergies between different disciplines of artistic expression, attempts to stretch out the boundaries of this complex art form, creates a space for encounters and encourage the artists to investigate how the use of camera and motion could challenge and expand their creative visions.
BEYOND BOUNDARIES - special screening event
Nowadays videodance focuses more and more towards the universal merge of the artistic languages. With the goal of building a totality (without aesthetic fragmentations and physical restrictions), the cross-media approach can add more skills to the human body, enhance the creativity and empower self-confidence. AVDP2020 - International Dance Film Festival, organising it’s 10th edition, proposes videodance as a tool for social transformation and brings to the forth-ground that cinema and dance are powerful means of exploring and developing social identity.
For 2020, AVDP team is interested in dance films and documentaries related to the topic BEYOND BOUNDARIES - when mission impossible becomes possible through collective spirit, creative ideas, strong dramaturgy and co-working between technology and humans (both able and disable people).
Special attention will be given to works that provoke the boundaries of physical and mental abilities, commenting what is "normal" and what is not, questioning freedom, faith, diversity, uniqueness, social stereotypes on physicality, discrimination and ‘’fear of the different’’.
