The art of capturing dance on film is as old as the art of film itself - the first dance films were created by the Lumiere Brothers in 1895. Essential Dance Film is proud to showcase the state of dance film today by presenting a curated election of features and shorts from around the world. The Essential Dance Film collection includes works by festival winners, Hollywood veterans and emerging filmmakers.Submissions for Essential Dance Film - Spring/Summer 2013 will be considered on an ongoing basis until January 15, 2013.
TenduTV (tendu.tv) is now accepting submissions for Essential Dance Film, a curated selection of features and shorts by choreographers and filmmakers from around the world. Building upon the original Essential Dance Film collection, a series of 9 dance shorts released by TenduTV in 2010, the expanded and newly-rebranded channel now releases new films each week via TenduTV’s digital platform partners. Essential Dance Film is available on the popular US platform, Hulu, and is mirrored on a branded YouTube show page that is available to audiences worldwide.
