ADF’s Movies By Movers is a bi-annual festival dedicated to the celebration of the conversation between the body and the camera. We love sharing the history of the collaboration between the ephemeral art of live movement and the perpetual nature of film. And we love receiving new expressions of these forms from all over the world from artists like you!

Submissions for the 2018 season are now open! Send us your short, feature length, documentary, experimental, narrative, and animated dance films! We seek short films by students and professionals, and feature films by professionals only.

Where: Durham, NC/Boone, NC, USA

Deadline for applications: February 9th, 2018

Films will be screened at the American Dance Festival during its annual summer festival in Durham, NC, and on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.
