Andreas Hannes (1987, GR) grew up in a musical family. After studying classical percussion at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece, he moved to the Netherlands, where he actively engaged in one of his great passions: film making. He was the artistic director of Small House Productions, an interdisciplinary media and performance art platform. Andreas started studying at the School for New Dance Development (Choreography) in 2014. In his graduation performance “The City” (2018), he exhibited the practice of “continuous skipping” and won the Moving Forward trajectory 2018, the Young Artsupport Amsterdam Award 2019 and the BNG DansPrijs 2020. Since 2011, Andreas has been affiliated with Cinedans FEST, where he currently works as the artistic programmer and producer of the festival.


Cinedans is an organization that fosters and develops dance and film /new media. The four main pillars of the organization are Cinedans FEST, WEB, TOUR and LAB. Cinedans FEST is unique in the Netherlands and in the world, celebrating dance film as genre and art form. Cinedans sees the ideal dance film as a true synthesis between the media of dance and cinematography. At Cinedans FEST the emphasis lies on choreographies which are created specifically for the camera and on special film adaptations of existing dance performances. Cinedans FEST also features a selection of special documentaries and retrospectives. Approximately 130 films from all over the world are screened each year.
