FICTS Sport Movies TV 18/07/2014

2014 Sport Movies & TV Festival The World DanceSport Federation has entered the official film of the World DanceSport Games 2013 Kaoshiung into the 2014 Sport Movies & TV Festival that takes place in Milano, ITA, this December.

Organised by the Fédération Internationale Cinéma TV Sportifs (FICTS), the festival awards every year the coveted Guirlande d'Honneur in seven competitive sections.

"Do your dance" is competing as a documentary with, in our humble view, good chances of getting "selected" - which would be the essential first step towards getting an award.

Director Pedro Toro has already won a Guirlande d'Honneur at the Sport Movies & TV Festival in 2006 with "Wings over Al Ain," a documentary on stunning aerial ballets performed by top pilots above the deserts of Abu Dhabi.


Here's the synopsis of "Do your dance" that had to be submitted along with the video files.

It is on rare occasions that the international elites in all the different forms and styles of dance as sport unite on a single stage. They do so in the WDSF World DanceSport Games!

"Do your dance" is the official film of these games that were held in their inaugural edition in Kaohsiung, TPE, from 16 to 20 September 2013. 736 athletes representing 48 nations, the world's best in a dozen DanceSport disciplines, gathered in the Taiwanese port city to fight for medals at the 13,000-capacity K-Arena over five consecutive days.

Just as the Games did in Kaohsiung, "Do your dance" brings out the common traits between the most different disciplines falling under the label DanceSport. Take the couple dancing Boogie Woogie, compare it to another performing the Viennese Waltz, and you conclude that the attires and the moves may differ greatly – but the spirits and attitudes remain the same.

“Do your dance” has its magic powers. It’s not only the sights of it all. It’s also the power of music, the draw of rhythmic expression; it is the unique blend of those ingredients that make dance an integral part of the fabric of every society.

Above all, “Do your dance” brings the audience very close to a group of extraordinary sportsmen and women on a quest for excellence.
