From the Edmonton Journal:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>"The Moving Pictures Festival of Dance on Film and Video's main event takes place in Toronto, but for nine years it has also toured dance films across Canada. <P>If only the films were as dynamic as the Bravo! ad, featuring a breakdancer in action. <P>I'm not sure if it was a deliberate choice on the part of the programmers or simply representative of the current trends in dance film, but in this year's selection, dance filmmakers seem to have abandoned dance." <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR><a href="" target="blank">more...</a><BR>

How disappointing, Marie. I wonder what the selection process for these films are.<P>One hopes that dance in media would contain quality material, as film is often the way a lot of people become familiar with dance.<P>It sounds as if the "innovative" approach was attempted in the selection, to the degree that some of the other criteria was overlooked.
