POOL INTERNATIONALES TanzFilmFestival Berlin Open Call

Updated: 24 May 2022

Festival: October 12th – 15th 2022, DOCK 11 Berlin

POOL 22 will present a selection of fascinating dance film productions from all over the world, making the event a meeting place for creatives involved in the fields of dance, film, fashion and advertisement.

The focus of the festival is on films that create independent filmchoreographies through the intense interplay between dance and cinematic tools like camera and editing. The curatorial team of POOL 22 will create a film program from all submissions, that will be presented during the festival. The selected films – our PEARLS – are on the same par and reflect the diversity of the genre.

Eligibility: All dancers, choreographers, filmmakers and artists are invited to apply with short filmchoreographies and dance animations. Films should not be longer than 30 minutes and not merely a documentation of a dance piece.

What you get: Selected artists will be awarded with the PEARLS ARTIST PRIZE that honours the continuous and unique work of the artists in the field of dance film. The available fee (6000 €) will be divided between the selected artists. Furthermore, POOL aims to collaborate with various venues and partners throughout the year, such as b12 Festival, presenting selected film programs around the world.
