What approach will you explore to make choreography filmic? In contrast, how will you make film choreographic? What type of collaboration can you imagine between the two art forms? What is the role of sound? The submission call aims to support screendance production, a hybrid art in which the choreography (whatever form that may take) is created specifically for the screen.
WHO CAN APPLY?
This submission call is open to artists from various artistic fields (choreographers, filmmakers, visual artists, etc.) who collaborate with performers.
The final project must not exceed 15 minutes in length. The screendance created must feature at least one performing artist.
