Since its inception, dance has been highlighted by the seventh art, the pioneers of cinema having all used it (the Lumière brothers, Méliès, Alice Guy, Pathé).

What could be more natural! Cinema and dance have the distinctiveness of questioning and constantly renewing our relationship to space and time through movement.

The Let’s Dance! retrospective consists of films handpicked by the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, especially for Bonjour India 2022.

Today, the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival is the world’s largest film festival dedicated to short films. In terms of audience and professional presence, it is the second largest film festival in France after Cannes.

Bonjour India 2022 will therefore host a Thematic Short Films Screening dedicated to dance, based on the retrospective theme of the 2022 edition of the International Short Film Festival.
