Bucharest International Dance Film Festival - Open Call for Shorts - dance films, musicals





Bucharest International Dance Film Festival, the only cinema event in Romania dedicated to dance films, launched the open call for short dance films, musicals, and animated movies!

BIDFF is the only dance film festival in our country and it was founded out of love for the dance film genre, with the purpose of promoting artists that work across genres and presenting cinematographic projects in which the language of the body explores strong narratives. Each year, the festival has a different theme that reflects upon the contemporary realities and questions the future of the body.

By a surprising and meaningful coincidence, as we are all confronting the global pandemic, utopia | dystopia is the theme of the BIDFF in 2020. The festival looks towards the future and tries to envision it. This year we use utopian | dystopian impulses as an instrument for reflection and dance films as a medium.

We invite film directors, choreographers, visual artists, animators, and musicians to submit their short films to the sixth edition of the festival, that will take place in Bucharest, between September 3 – 6. We also highly encourage filmmakers and other artists to apply if they have a movement themed animation or a short film revolving around the concept of utopia and dystopia.

BIDFF has a regular international and national competition dedicated to short dance films, while also holding the new competitional category for musicals, introduced last year.

Use quick cuts, speed ramps… circle the dance, invite the camera inside of the dance.

Try to capture the feeling of the dance… 

Avoid using only frontal coverage!

Feel free to express exactly how you feel about what you're going through — what we're all going through…

When is the deadline?  With no end in sight to this lockdown, we are extending this challenge indefinitely.

We will select several one minute or less movies to post to our IG/FB, and at some point TBD we will select 6 winners to receive cash awards + coverage in Cultural Weekly!
