Moovy is a dance film festival which will take place during Filmforum at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. Dance films are everything other than simply filmed contemporary dance. A dance film is an intermediate hybrid of movement and film where choreography develops a relationship between the dancer and camera. Through the synthesis of dance and moving images, specific temporal and spatial structures are created which would not be possible on a real stage.
Moovy aims to encourage choreographers, dancers, film-makers and digital artists from North Rhine-Westphalia to develop innovative ‘dance film’ projects together. An open call supports this plan. After films are produced from this collaboration, a selection will be chosen for an open call of which, some will be screened at ‘Moovy’.
