International Dance Festival Birmingham 2012

Following a formal tender process, we began working with International Dance Festival Birmingham as their chosen supplier to provide film production service for the UK’s biggest Dance Festival. Large scale performances would take place at indoor and outdoor locations across the city.

We produced a series of edited and full length versions of the festival productions and ultimately created a showreel showcasing highlights of the four week event.

The pinnacle of the 2012 festival was a large outdoor performance of the show Wings of Desire, a dance adaptation of the classic Wim Wenders film. Over 12000 people crammed into Victoria Square over four nights to watch the performance which was hosted by DJ, musician and television star Goldie. A dazzling array of performers took part in the show which was staged on venues, buildings and platforms in a 360 degree plane around the audience in the centre of the square.

If you would like to know more about this project and how it was developed and produced, please read this case study.

The films we produced have helped cement the festival’s reputation as one of the biggest and most varied dance festivals in Europe.


“Swift Films was the perfect company for the job. They offer cost-effective and creative solutions, they’re flexible and reactive to change, deliver high quality service and materials, and possess a professional, dedicated and approachable team who are an absolute pleasure to work with.”
