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. In addition, animation technology and electronic image processing allow for movement outside of the dancer. Within each film, surroundings are set into motion either to create an everyday scenario or fictitious world. Moovy aims to create a platform for both local and international artists by presenting non-Western material from partnerships such as “Screendance Africa.” In addition to the latest films, Moovy will also present “classics.”
