Screendance Competition at Live at Leeds

We’re delighted to be screening a selection of films from LIFF28’s Screendance Competition. The programme will be screened in two parts at 12.15 on the 2nd and 3rd of May as part of Symposium, a fringe event at Live at Leeds, taking place at The Black Swan. Both Saturday and Sunday are free to those with Live at Leeds wristbands; those without can pay what they feel.

‘Screendance, dance film and video-dance are some of the titles used to describe this elusive genre which spans a vast range of styles: some of the shorts in the selection could sit comfortably within an esoteric artists’ film & video programme and some on mainstream TV. Sometimes featuring dancers and sometimes not, sometimes narrative and sometimes not, what unites these shorts is their engagement with choreography, either in their content, the edit, or ideally both.’ (Andy Wood, Screendance Programmer)
