Submission Call for the 9th edition of the Festival International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne 2017

Where: Burgundy, France

Deadline for applications: 20 April 2017

The Festival International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne (France) is an annual screendance platform that promotes dance films, works of video art, and other forms of experimental cinema that explore movement through bodies, animation, objects and a wide range of compositional methods. We are currently seeking submissions that resonate with the theme Low-tech/Old-tech.

Cameras do not make films; filmmakers make films. – Maya Deren

Films selected for screening will be shown at one of several events during the festival in late May/early June 2017, including cinema screenings in a theatre or on monitors in installation format. Festival venues include the Petit théâtre du Château de la Verrerie, l’Université de Bourgogne and more.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 20 April 2017. We are only accepting submissions related to the theme noted above. Artists may submit up to two films. All lengths, formats and production years are welcome, although short films are preferred due to limited screening time. We do not screen documentaries or recordings of live performances. The submission process is electronic and films must be available to view on Vimeo or YouTube (private videos are fine—don’t forget to include the password in your form!). Submissions are only accepted via an online form:

We are an artist-run festival seeking to promote screendance. We will never ask for a fee to submit or screen your work, and all artists selected for the official festival screening program will receive a small fee for their work.

If you have further questions, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page on our website: or e-mail:

All artists who submit will receive a festival selection e-mail by 1 May 2017.
