Dance:Film10 brings dance on film to Edinburgh Festival

Still from Mercury by Daniel Warren

Pieces on Pina Bausch and Scottish Ballet films by Daniel Warren amongst highlights

The Edinburgh International Film Festival may no longer coincide with the rest of the August extravaganza, but the folks at Dance:Film are doing their best to fill the slot. Small but perfectly formed, this year’s film fest features films about the late great Pina Bausch, a lecture on early 20th-century modern dancer Loïe Fuller, a combined film/performance and screenings of filmmaker Daniel Warren's films about Scottish Ballet (pictured). See the full programme at

Filmhouse, 228 2688 and Dance Base, 225 5525, 23-27 Aug, times and prices vary.

DANCE:FILM 10 at the Fringe

A programme of dance shorts at the Filmhouse is complemented by events incorporating live performance and film at Dance Base. Includes film work featuring Forward Motion and Scottish Ballet, as well as a tribute to German choreographer Pina Bausch.
