UMove Online Videodance Festival
UMove Online Videodance Festival celebrates the creativity and diversity of screendance in all its forms, from dance/film to gaming, from animation to mash-ups – all created for sharing on the web, on mobile devices and on ipods. UMove was started in 2009 by three dance film-makers: Kriota Willberg, Marta Renzi, and Anna Brady Nuse (Director, Pentacle’s Movement Media Project), who are passionate about promoting screendance through any means possible. The first festival appeared on Pentacle’s blog, Move the Frame in October 2009 and was accompanied by a launch party and screening at The Tank in NYC, followed by screenings at dance film festivals around the world including Fábrica de Movimentos in Portugal, dança em foco in Brazil, the In Difference Festival in Belgrade, and the International Videodance Festival of Burgundy in France.
