Eligibility:

Submissions for the 10th anniversary edition of the Bucharest International Dance Film Festival are now open! 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 the festival that will take place between September 5 – 8, 2024, under the theme of “Mapping Bodies”.

The 10th anniversary edition of BIDFF, “Mapping Bodies”, aims to create a space for dialogue and exchange of experience, mapping bodies in different cultural or socio-political contexts and presenting new perspectives on the contemporary world, touching on its emotions, concerns and topics of reflection. Contemporary dance is created in the present time, with means of the present. It infuses other art forms with new meanings, it has a major potential to transform our relationship with the body and it enriches the way we communicate and express ourselves. Over the four festival days, dancers, choreographers, visual artists, directors, virtual reality creators, theoreticians and producers are engaged in more than 20 events structured in five sections characterised by diversity, multiplicity and openness. Interconnected, they form a dance map with artistic journeys from various contexts.
