Eligibility:

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.

 

How to apply

→ Submit your film on Filmfreeway: https://filmfreeway.com/bidff2021

→ Find more information on our website: www.bidff.ro 

 

Awards & Prizes

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

Awards:

→ Best International Film

→ Best Romanian Film

→ Audience Award

 

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.

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance Online 2021

Overview

This six-day online workshop brings together emerging choreographers interested in broadening their understanding of choreographic thinking, and mid-career makers looking to refresh their practice in an environment of shared learning.

The goal of the workshop is to bring our intuitive knowledge and curiosity into an easy dialogue with our critical minds.

We will work in a spirit of rigour that makes space for lightness, play and empathy, while acknowledging the realities of the global pandemic and the intense debate taking place today around social justice issues. We will share our daily work with the group, giving and receiving thoughtful and mutually supportive feedback.

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance will be guided by veteran choreographer and mentor Christopher House, formerly of Toronto Dance Theatre, with guest faculty.

What Does the Program Offer?
Taking advantage of both the restrictions and benefits of online art making, we will examine choreography as a continuum of actions, tactics and personal values that can be shared and developed by both choreographers and performers. All participants will compose and perform on a daily basis, working quickly and intuitively, and using the unique features of our current living situations to celebrate the artistic potential of limitations. 
The program will make space for broader discussion on such as the ethics of representation; the pressure to innovate; the traps of self-sabotage; sharing authorship; and the social and political questions of this extraordinary moment in time.  

We will refer to an evolving list of compositional considerations derived from disciplines such as cinema, music, architecture, literature, visual art, theatre, physics, biology and dance; participants are invited to add to and personalize this list in support of their own practice. 

Areas of Focus will include:

- Enhancing Specificity
- Editing and Distillation
- Adaptation and Remix
- Working With Found Materials
- Developing Written Scores
- Choreographing with Objects
- Relationships with Sound and Light
- Foreground/ Background: Space as Poetry
- Modes of Counterpoint
- Expansion within Limits
- Addressing Anticipation
- Framing, Mapping and Navigating Form
- Collaboration and Directing
- Redefining Virtuosity
 
A special online Resource Hub will serve as a place to share materials and collect questions and further observations on these and other topics. Participants will be encouraged to organize one-on-one or smaller group dialogues outside of the official meeting hours and to take advantage of the materials in the Resource Hub. The program Director will be available for individual appointments throughout the workshop.

Who Should Apply
This program is for emerging choreographers and performance-makers who are interested in increasing their compositional awareness and expanding their definition of dance, and for established movement artists looking to refresh their practice and reassess their assumptions. 

The program is open to artists worldwide, inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, race, creed, age, national origin, economic positions, or physical or mental abilities. ASL interpretation will be available for Deaf artists.

Participants must be able to commit to being present for the full duration of the workshop and be available for a thirty-minute conversation with lead faculty member Christopher House in advance.

*Scholarship of 100% of tuition fees will be awarded to all successful applicants.

Program Dates: June 14 - 19, 2021
Application Deadline: May 5, 2021
