For the 7th time, JOINT ADVENTURES is inviting choreographers, dancers, film and (multi-)media artists to develop new aesthetic approaches and visual languages for choreography and film in a 60-second ad format. We are searching for works that operate choreographically with the film medium and initiate unusual aesthetic dialogues. Cineastic media confrontations with choreographic approaches can result from a new combination of film, art, video and choreography; the goal is to sensitize the audience’s view of film and choreography as art forms and open its eyes for a choreography of images.
There are prizes in two categories. Monetary prizes will be awarded for the artistic quality of the films in the amount of up to 2.000,- EUR. In addition, prizes will also be awarded in the “cinema” category that includes the presentation of the winning films throughout Germany and Switzerland, as well as the screening at different European festivals. Within the framework of a cooperation with Das Tanzfest.ch, the winning films will also be included in the programs of the cities participating in Das Tanzfest.ch between 12th and 15th of May, 2016. The films submitted to the competition will be judged and the winners selected by an external and independent jury of experts; the jurors are active in the international film and dance worlds.
The award ceremony and the presentation of the winning films will take place in November 2015 in Switzerland.
The goal of the short-film project CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES initiated by JOINT ADVENTURES is to anchor the various forms of representation and realization of choreography and film in the audience’s consciousness. It is meant to give this art form space for artistic input, exchange, networking and presentation in order to advance the interaction between choreography and media art.
