City View Lounge (in the Ballet Austin building)
We are accepting finished works (no works in progress) which utilize dance choreography and/or body movement alongside cinematic design to create a distinct and enticing short film.
We are accepting films which highlight or incorporate dance performance and choreography. Cinematic design alongside central choreography themes should be used to reveal central themes of the film, whether these themes be connected to a narrative or story, states of being, or more experimental and formal concerns.
Yes, 10 minutes maximum.
Yes, you may submit more than one piece, however please note that each application will require its own application fee.
In order to apply you must submit a YouTube, Vimeo or Google Drive file version of your finished work. Please DO NOT send files via Dropbox; we will not be able to view these. Please do not send any raw footage - we'll need to view the film in its most final version in order to consider it for the festival.
All applicants will receive an email by the notification date. (If you do not receive an email by this time, please contact us directly.) If you are selected, you will be asked to promptly accept our invitation and send more specific information for your screening. If you do not meet our acceptance deadline, we will assume you are not interested in participating and will give your spot to another artist.
We are unable to provide artists with stipends this year.
No, you may submit a film to the festival even if you are unable to attend the screening. We’ll miss you, though!
The screening will include a program with information about the chosen pieces and artists. There will be an option for audience members to leave written feedback for each film, which you can then request from us.
No problem. Contact Lisa Kobdish: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications for 2018 are closed.
