"Initiation" a double winner! We have two main awards of international festivals!
We are happy to announce that the short film "Inicjacja" directed by Iwona Pasińska, last year's production of the Polish Dance Theater, won two prizes at the international dance film festivals. He received the Best of Fest award at the Arts Triangle Dance Film Festival in Dallas and the main prize in the category "Best international film" in the 3rd edition of the Mexico City Videodance Festival.
ARTS TRIANGLE Dance Film Festival is dedicated to works of art created at the intersection of the art of movement and the image retained. It creates a platform for dialogue for distinguished artists and those who are just beginning their artistic journey. This year, its first edition took place. "Initiation" received the main prize.
The Mexico City Videodance Festival concept is based on the creation of a meeting place and lively, open discussion with the participation of viewers, filmmakers, theoreticians, dancers and visual artists. The organizers aim to popularize contemporary works of art that combine choreography and film language. The leitmotif of this year's 3rd edition was the expression of an adult body, expressed in different movement languages - contemporary dance, social dance, traditional dances, vogue dance, ballet, steppe, street dance and many others. 40 films from around the world competed for the "best international film" award, among others from Germany, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, South Korea, Denmark, Spain, France, India and the USA. The Best of Fest main prize went to the film "Initiation".
