A film festival that I don't think a lot of folks know about and that I think deserves your attention based on all I've seen and heard... the Bill T. Jones documentary we've covered, A Good Man, screened there last year.
Read on for details:
The American Dance Festival is pleased to announce our annual call for submissions for the 17th annual International Screendance Festival.
Created as a platform to showcase recent developments in the field as well as historically relevant work, ADF’s International Screendance Festival, directed by dance filmmaker and curator, Douglas Rosenberg, has screened more than 320 dance films by filmmakers from over 20 countries, to audiences from all over the world.
All entries will be adjudicated by a panel of filmmakers and choreographers and selected works will be screened from Friday, July 6 through Sunday, July 8, as part of the 2012 American Dance Festival season.
The ADF International Screendance Festival seeks work of high artistic quality that may inspire new ways of thinking about dance and its relationship to the screen. Certificates of Distinction may be awarded to works of exceptional merit.
Entries should be submitted in one of the following categories:
Choreography for the Camera—original work made specifically for video or film or re-staged for the camera.
Documentaries—productions that include interviews or other educational elements in addition to choreography.
Experimental and Digital Technologies—work that extends the boundaries of dance and can exist only in video, film, or new technologies.
Student Work—submissions produced while the filmmakers were students or by current students.
Early Deadline: March 14, 2012 with $30 entry fee
Final Deadline: April 13, 2012 with $40 entry fee
