Ausdance National is pleased to announce Foxtel Arts as a 2018 sponsor of the Australian Dance Awards.
Foxtel Arts (Channel 133 on Foxtel), a subscription television arts channel on the Foxtel platform, showcases arts performance and factual insights into art, artists and their creative achievements.
A first-time supporter of the Australian Dance Awards, Foxtel Arts has created an inspiring 30-second CTV for the Awards and has sponsored the award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance on Film or New Media.
The 21st Australian Dance Awards is taking place at the Brisbane Powerhouse on 8 September 2018. The Awards recognise Australia’s outstanding dancers, choreographers and performances of the past year and honour individuals who have made significant contributions to the art form.
Foxtel Arts will present the award to the 2018 recipient of Outstanding Achievement in Dance on Film or New Media. The award is for innovation, excellence or exceptional production and realisation. This year all four nominees are for works on film and all creators are from NSW. Nominees are Richard James Allen for Enchant, Sophia Bender for Behind Barres, Sue Healey for Eileen, and Catherine Moore & Jade Lowry for Unstilled.
‘Foxtel Arts and Ausdance’s Australian Dance Awards are a match made in heaven’, said Kerry Comerford, Executive Director of Ausdance National.
‘We are both dedicated to showcasing Australia’s finest performers and encouraging access to and understanding of dance. 2018 marks what we hope to be the beginning of a long relationship with Foxtel Arts’.
Ausdance National is proud to be associated with Foxtel Arts—an important member of Australia’s arts community, and one that assists in delivering access to arts and culture, and educating and inspiring audiences.
