Send us your dance film until June 15!

Festival: September 07-10 at DOCK 11, Berlin
Deadline: 15 June 2016


POOL is a format for dance films and dance animations and offers space for the mutual exchange of experiences, development, training, and production prospects. It is a platform for films which picture dance not as a simple documentation, but rather create choreographies exclusively for, and with, the camera. POOL focuses on the intense interplay between dance and the techniques of film, exploring the possibilites and boundaries of the art form. In addition, POOL encourages exchange with other creative areas such as fashion, advertising and music.



All dancers, choreographers, film makers and artists are invited to apply with dance short films and dance animations. 
Films should not be longer than 30 minutes and also not only a documentation of a dance piece. The budget of the films or the background of its creators are less important for us.



Applications can be submitted online.

  • Filled and signed online application form as scan to
  • 3 digital film stills, minimum 300 dpi
  • Optional:  biography, video testimonies and useful information



The POOL 16 jury will create a film programme from all submissions and select the winner films, the PEARLS 16. PEARLS are the equal winners of POOL – INTERNATIONALES TanzFilmFestival BERLIN.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Fluxus—the international laboratory of art, architecture, design and music—Swinburne University of Technology has released a free digital copy of The Fluxus Reader. 


Fluxus began in the 1950s as a loose, international community of artists, architects, composers and designers. By the 1960s, Fluxus had become a laboratory of ideas and an arena for artistic experimentation in Europe, Asia and the United States. Described as ‘the most radical and experimental art movement of the 1960s’, Fluxus has challenged conventional thinking on art and culture for half a century. Fluxus artists had a central role in the birth of such key contemporary art forms as concept art, installation, performance art, intermedia and video. Despite this influence, the scope and scale of this unique phenomenon have made it difficult to explain Fluxus in normative historical and critical terms. 


In The Fluxus Reader, editor Ken Friedman offers the first comprehensive overview of this challenging and controversial group. The Fluxus Reader is written by leading scholars and experts from Europe, the United States and Australia.


First published in 1998, the book was out of print for several years and only available from rare book dealers and galleries. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Fluxus in 2012, Swinburne University arranged for a complete digital edition in PDF format, copy-enabled with full search features.
