In the Cinedans HUB, current topics around the dance film field are being discussed. Together with experts, makers and the public, we focus on trends and developments. Topics that are covered include:

Dance film as a growing genre: How do we identify its’ growth and how can the field support this development? What is the special communicative power of dance film and how can it be used to address social issues? Why do makers choose this specific genre? What motivates educational institutes to include dance and camera in their curriculum and what do students think about this?
