Screen. Dance – Scotland’s Festival of Dance on Screen
Open Call for film submissions. The festival accepts short film submissions of no longer than 20 minutes made in the last 7 years.

Where: CityMoves Dance agency – Anatomy Rooms, Aberdeen

When: 13th -18th October 2020

Deadline for applications: 31st august Regular deadline.

Building on the success of the June Festival event online we are creating a special new event in Aberdeen in collaboration with City Moves as part of Dance Live. This will be a mix of screenings and live streams that complement the Dance Live programme and is adapted to the COVID 19 pandemic to acknowledge physical distancing and restricted travel.
Screendance is an expanding genre of artist’s moving image created by combining choreographic intention and compositional form, with the language of cinema.

We also have a symposium opportunity for artists wishing to attend the festival and make a presentation about their work. Films will be shown during a public symposium of presentation sessions to share the artists’ perspectives and the current state of the art in screendance. Each presentation will be limited to 15 minutes and be facilitated. Each session will be followed by audience questions either live or via chat online.. The presentations will be documented and collated to become part of an online digital publication. Submissions in this category will not be part of the competition. In order for your proposal to be accepted you must commit to present your work in person or via video.
