The inclusion of multiple collaborators across different academic and artistic fields is essential in understanding  A Bodily State of Noise conceptual basis of noise as a socio-political agent that shapes systems of representation and paradigm of power preservation and information consumption rather than simply an aesthetic /sensorial form. Hence, a need for a collaborative discourse analyzing the structural form in which noise affects every bit of our lives was the premise for the creation of the project. How can noise, instrumentalized in shaping restrictive and violent regimes of control and power imbalance, create alternative futures?

OPEN CALL BIDFF #8 – SHORT DANCE FILMS
(UN)SAFE ZONES

Filmmakers, dance artists, animators, visual artists and digital art makers are invited to submit their works for the International and Romanian Short Film Competitions of BIDFF – Bucharest International Dance Film Festival.

Through the (un)safe zones theme, the eighth edition of BIDFF (September 8 - 11, 2022) invites artists and audiences alike to witness art redefining its shapes in a world in crisis. The artistic formats undergo mandatory mutations: the film leaves the cinema, the dance leaves the stage, the stage becomes a space open to debates, and the reality is radically transformed by imaginative artistic manifestations.

BIDFF #8 questions the future’s safety in the face of current events and wonders what forms of art we are heading towards. What molds will movies accede to? What topics will gain relevance as we are forced to be more aware of national, bodily, and inner boundaries?

We are looking for:
→ short dance films of a maximum of 20 minutes, produced in the last two years;
→ short dance films in the genres of dance film, screen-dance, dance for camera, musical, animation, fiction or documentary about the body or the world of dance, experimental shorts conceptually oriented around the idea of movement;
→ short dance films with a minimum quality of Full HD (1920 x 1080);
→ each director can submit a maximum of two films.

We are NOT looking for:
→ music videos, trailers or recordings of performances, films already submitted in the previous years to BIDFF, one-minute films, commercials, home-made videos;

Prize Summary: 
A prize pool of 1500 euros
Prizes Details: 

BIDFF awards excellence, novelty and courage in filmmaking with a prize pool of 1500 euros.

Awards:

→ Best International Film

→ Best Romanian Film
