We are a group of dedicated humans, who love dance film and are woking out a space for this beautiful genre in Denmark and the Nordic countries and regions.

At dansefilm.dk we facilitate different gatherings, workshops, meeting and other activities – and invite artists, professionals and other interested persons in to these forums.

The initiators behind this project are:
Film director Helle Pagter
Dance film maker Maia Elisabeth Sørensen
Administrator and advisor Jens Christian Jensen

Our mission
  • Dissemination
  • Discourse
  • Visibility for the art form
  • Supporting makers
  • Creating new viewing possibilities
  • Collaboration with organisations and independent artists/professionals, who wish to promote the art form.

We are still in search of the formal formulation of a mission. We would like to be open about our process.
