OPEN CALL BIDFF #7 - SHORT DANCE FILMS

POTENTIAL WORLDS

 

Filmmakers, dance artists, animators, visual artists and digital art makers are invited to submit their works for the competitional section of BIDFF - Bucharest International Dance Film Festival (September 1-5, Bucharest, Romania).

BIDFF encourages syncretism and dialogue between movement and diverse forms of cinema and visual art, from the more traditional ones to experimental or virtual reality works. 

Artists are encouraged to submit daring cinematic works in which the body relates to technology, ecology and new socio-political discourses. 
BIDFF also addresses recent video-art formats and animations that question the relation between solid artistic content and the fast process of digitization. The curatorial approach goes towards trying to decipher, transform and shape these ideas.

 

Deadlines

→ Regular: June 25th 2021

→ Late: July 16th 2021

All applicants will be informed about the outcome of their submission by August 1st 2021.

Rules & Terms

The competitional section is dedicated to short films only and is divided into International and Romanian. The board will take into consideration fiction, documentary and animation films that either use movement to explore an idea or speak about issues related to the body and the world of dance and performance. We also highly encourage you to apply if you have a short film that explores the future of art, questioning issues related to the ethics of collaboration, communication, and co-existence.

 

We are looking for:

→ films of a maximum of 20 minutes, produced in the last two years;

→ films in the genres of dance film, screendance, 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;

→ 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;

 

We offer:

→ money awards for Best International Film and Best Romanian Film;

→ free entry to all the events of the festival, excluding workshops that require a previous application.

BIDFF is a platform for exquisite films that use movement as their main language or the body as their main subject. Faced with the camera lenses, the body becomes the main focus of cutting-edge arthouse films with a sometimes transparent, sometimes coded meaning, but always challenging the viewer to a playful exchange of information about social life, politics, extreme emotions, interesting places and oddly beautiful aesthetics.

The festival takes place each year in September, in multiple locations from Bucharest, Romania. 

Besides film screenings, BIDFF organizes panels, exhibitions, public presentations and film production labs.
