Tendu.tv is now accepting submissions for Essential Dance Film, a collection of features and shorts by choreographers and filmmakers around the world.
Capturing dance on film is as old as the art of film itself: the first dance films were created by the Lumière Brothers in 1895. Essential Dance Film showcases the state of dance film today by presenting a curated selection of films, including works by festival winners, Hollywood veterans and emerging filmmakers. It builds on the original Essential Dance Film collection, a series of nine dance shorts released by Tendu.tv in 2010. The expanded and newly rebranded channel now releases new films each week via Tendu.tv’s digital platform partners. Essential Dance Film is available on the popular US platform, Hulu, and is mirrored on a branded YouTube show page that is available to audiences worldwide.

Year and place of premiere
Type of source video (such as Beta, Digibeta, Apple Pro Res)
