“Dance Camera Istanbul 2009”
II. International Dance Film Festival


The “Dance Camera Istanbul” 2nd International Dance Film Festival will be held in Istanbul, Turkey in between October 15th and November 15th 2009, focusing on video dance, dance on camera, dance photography and dance film screenings.“Dance Camera Istanbul” annually showcases international dance films, camera re-works and experimental movement-based films by contemporary video artists and choreographers from the student to professional level. There is no restriction on the subject.

The festival supports films which investigate the ongoing search for movement and spaces, both in and out of bodies.

The aim of the festival is to build a community for both dancers and filmmakers to come together, to present and promote both local and cutting edge international works, to share ideas, and to provide a collaborative experience for dancers and filmmakers as they work together to produce the final product.

“Dance Camera Istanbul” also focuses on increasing attention and awareness of the collaborations between dance, film, visual arts and music as well as the different mediums and forms of dance. The goals of “Dance Camera Istanbul” are to offer a proper venue in which to screen and share the works, to encourage and educate student dance filmmakers, to spread the knowledge of dance for camera, and to deepen the understanding of Turkish and international dance film practices through panels, practical workshops, discussions and screenings.
We are seeking enthusiastic individuals and groups who are strongly focused (or want to focus) on dance for camera work, video or multimedia installation collaborations. Examples include video dance, dance documentary, adaptation of a stage work or site specific creation, any kind of artistic and experimental work with kinesthetic energy and rhythmic design, and choreographic works that are created specifically for the lens of the camera and include a well- planned editing process. We invite you to be part of the “Dance Camera Istanbul Festival” family. Accepted works will be screened in various venues in Istanbul and throughout Turkey. In attendance will be Turkish and international dancers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, artists and students, as well as both national and international audiences. During the festival, we will organize discussions between the artists, filmmakers and audience after the screenings.

Dance Film Workshops and Lectures/Panels

The workshops will be directed by acclaimed national and international dance and video artists, filmmakers and choreographers who will introduce different approaches to camera, dance and movement as well as providing information about video dance history, archives and links for further research. The workshops will take place at several dance studios and stages as well as access to indoor and outdoor spaces for filming. During the festival month, there will be national and international lectures serious on the dance camera work and the related fields. If you are interested in honoring us with your presence and lecture, please contact with us in regards to your possible topic. It would be our pleasure to start and organize a growing artistic environment and relationship.

Partners and Sponsors

“Dance Camera Istanbul” collaborates with several cultural institutions for visual artists, choreographers, performers and with many other highly appreciated contributors. Also we are delighted to partner with DFA (Dance Films Association) as touring partnership. Our sponsors and partners will be announced in the near future.

Hello Dance Film Friends,

Here's a little more info on the September workshop I posted about earlier. Of most importance at this time is the call for student works. If you teach, please let your students know about the deadline before they leave for the summer so they can plan to submit. We will be bringing in a great jury and their comments will be available to your students, which can be quite valuable for them.

In response to Jody's interesting comment about submitting unfinished works, if a student would like to submit an unfinished work for feedback only, I think that would be fine. However, they would need to identify it as such. Unfinished works would not be screened, but if there's time for jury feedback, that could be valuable for them as well.


Please mark your calendars (and have your students do so also) for the University of Utah’s 7th International Dance for the Camera Festival and Workshop with award-winning Canadian filmmaker, Laura Taler (bio below), September 10-12, 2009, in Salt Lake City, Utah. With three evening screenings and a two-day hands-on workshop, it promises to be a great weekend immersion in Dance for the Camera. Registration Fee: $150 USD

Call for Student Submissions:
Students who are submitting works must be or must have been enrolled in a full-time university undergraduate or graduate degree program, or a dance film workshop when the work was made. The postmark deadline for all submissions (national and international) is 5:00 pm, Friday, July 17, 2009. Please submit Region 1 or All Region DVDs. DVDs will not be returned. Jury-selected student films will be screened the opening night of the festival.

The website is currently being redesigned, but detailed information will be available soon at: or

I will post again once the website is up, but for immediate information regarding the festival, contact me at:

For immediate information regarding the student submissions, contact either:
Shannon Vance, or Erin Empey,

Laura Taler (Canada) — Romanian-born director Laura Taler began her career as a choreographer. Her exploration of the effect of movement in different media and in unusual places led to performances intertwined with photography, text, and film footage: in a cemetery, a bar-room, on the stage, and on the screen. In 1995 she made her directorial debut with the award-winning dancefilm “the village trilogy”. Since then Taler has created over a dozen films that have been broadcast on the CBC (Canada), Bravo! (Canada), W (Canada), TfO (Ontario), ARTV (Quebec), Bravo (U.S.), Channel 4 (U.K.), NPS (The Netherlands), Kunstkanaal (The Netherlands), ABC (Australia), IBA (Israel), SVT (Sweden) and in numerous festivals and special screenings internationally. Taler also conducts dancefilm workshops around the world. Filmography: the village trilogy (1995); Heartland (1997); Dances For A Small Screen (1997); A Very Dangerous Pastime (2000); Perpetual Motion (2002); DEATH and the MAIDEN (2003); FORSAKEN (2005); THE SORCERER (2006).
