Keynote Speaker, Ellen Bromberg
will present at the April 29th screening
ScreenDance: A genre of dance made exclusively for the camera, in which dance/movement is the central theme of the story, becoming the primary expressive element in the work. This screening is a platform for dance films of many styles, genres or techniques that highlight and encourage the dialogue and blending of dance and film. The Iowa International ScreenDance Festival provides a platform for ScreenDance creators to explore the dynamic possibilities of movement created specifically for camera/screen. Prior to the festival, all ScreenDance submissions will be reviewed and curated by a panel of filmmakers and choreographers.
The audience will have the opportunity to view 12 short films and engage with several of the ScreenDance creators via SKYPE. In addition, at the April 29th screening, Ellen Bromberg, ScreenDance pioneer, will discuss ScreenDance and its impact on the field of dance.
ScreenDance, presented at FilmScene, is founded and directed by Associate Professor Eloy Barragán of the University of Iowa Department of Dance, with co-director Nora Garda. It is part of the 11th annual Iowa Dance Festival, celebrating National Dance Week.
TICKETS: Admission is $10 at the door.
