#SummerhallAdapts collaboration.

Happy to announce we are still running this event in collaboration with Summerhall in Edinburgh despite not being able to use their screening facilities.

Due to the ongoing restrictions this year the festival will be streamed entirely in our special screening room on 19 and 20th June but we hope audiences worldwide will donate to the Summerhall funding appeal and support this fantastic independent arts facility while enjoying hours of high quality dance on screen and exciting artist presentations.

Follow #summerhalladapts on Twitter and do make a donation if you can.

Screen.Dance moves online for June festival event.

Sad to announce that Summerhall in Edinburgh will not reopen in June so we will not be able to hold our film festival screenings and presentations there.

However we will be running the festival online so please stay in touch for further announcements and press releases!

So we are four weeks away from our online screen.dance festival! We are ready to announce our international artist presenters!

Each 20 minute presentation will give us an insight into the art and practice of screendance making with behind the scene perspectives on the creative processes and concepts motivating the artists.
