Dance for Camera Awards 2002
Following shortlisting in Amsterdam and the UK 8 films have been selected for development, 4 in the UK and 4 in the Netherlands.

Established by the BBC and the Arts Council of England in 1992, Dance for the Camera aims to combine the talents of choreographers and directors to create diverse, innovative and high quality films for television. Each of the collaborations uses the fundamental elements of movement, image and music, to express a personal vision on screen.

‘We are delighted to be working with the BBC and for the second time with NPS (Nederlands Programme Stichtung) on this long running series. The collaboration between BBC2 and the Arts Council of England goes from strength to strength and this series displays an exciting and provocative mix of ideas and styles’ said Hilary Carty, Director of Dance at the Arts Council of England.

‘Although the television climate has changed, bold ideas and brave and inspiring dance films are still made, and by more and more film-makers. Dance for the Camera has been the vehicle for some of the best of these and although it is teetering on the fringe of current TV schedules, deserves all the plaudits it receives’ said Ross MacGibbon, Executive Producer, Dance for the BBC.
