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

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

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.

- How do we dance in isolation… and how do we connect?

- How do we create relevance dancing in the privacy of our own homes?

- What do we feel while being physically limited by an invisible enemy?

In the face of COVID 19 we refuse to be stopped… If anything, our creativity should be amplified!

So we challenge ourselves and we challenge you...

Conceptualize, choreograph, direct, art direct, & in all ways engage in the creation of a 1-minute or less site-specific dance film inside the privacy of your home.  Respond directly to the site! 

Explore shooting coverage & employing multiple camera angles…. Experiment!!!

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!

Join award winning, industry leading faculty Michael Brown and Keith Partridge for this hands-on, technical skill- and- theory-based masterclass. The program builds upon the foundational knowledge delivered in our Adventure Filmmakers Workshop (AFW) to provide AFW alumni as well as experienced adventure filmmakers with an advanced course. 

Participants will attend this masterclass with a project in mind, with intent to share it for peer review and critique. Participant projects will also benefit from one on one consultation with faculty and guest speakers during the residency. The project in mind may be at the story idea stage, have raw footage, or be in post-production. During the masterclass, participants will also shoot and edit new projects centred around outdoor and adventure exercises in order to dive deeply into sound, camera techniques, editing, and more. Throughout the week participants will gain the tools required to navigate the complexities of producing quality films – from an idea to a final screening master.

The residency will centre around outdoor and adventure shooting exercises in order to dive deeply into sound, camera techniques, editing, and more. Participants will gain the tools required to navigate the complexities of producing quality films – from an idea to a final screening master.

Individualized interaction with our accomplished faculty, Michael Brown and Keith Partridge, and group collaboration with colleagues will allow participants to thoroughly explore the creative, editorial, and technical aspects of the filmmaking process and hone their current projects.

What does this program offer?

The Adventure Filmmakers Masterclass builds on the ideas presented in the Adventure Filmmakers Workshop. The program will help participants build confidence in their skills, re-energize their creative drive, and answer the inevitable questions that arise as we sink our teeth into the real work of making a film.

This masterclass provides an opportunity to cross-pollinate with peers and get inspired by world leading creatives who will provide invaluable top-end insight. With on-location adventure sports elements; we will examine the worlds of the vertical camera, environmental landscape and adventure wilderness, and help develop the necessary skills to operate within these environments with high-grade equipment. 

Who should apply?

The Adventure Filmmakers Masterclass is an ideal fit for those who need a creative boost or are in the thick of dealing with the filmmaker’s equivalent of ‘writer’s block’. 

Applicants demonstrating an advanced level of proficiency via their show reel and previous finished films, and who have a project that would benefit from story and character development and peer critique in this immersive masterclass, are encouraged to apply. AFW alumni status is a desirable pre-requisite, although not compulsory. Past participants of other equivalent film schools/programs are also welcome.

Participants should expect to carry a pack of up to 15 kilos over forest terrain and to access a local sport-climbing area.

Application Deadline: March 25, 2020
