The International ScreenDance Festival 2022, in the spirit of being more inclusive, embraces new generations to the festival through the creation of two categories, student and professional films.

Where: Iowa City, Iowa and Virtually

When: August, 26th 2022

Deadline for applications: August 1st, 2022

Screen-Dance is a genre that combines choreography and moving image. This intersection of movement and cinema results in a distinctive, hybrid form of performance art that creates for a magical viewing experience. Dance has been a subject of film since the birth of cinema, but Screen-Dance is now becoming more accepted as a genre in its own right. Particularly in these COVID-19 pandemic times, restrictions on live performing arts have sparked a renewed interest in exploring dance on the screen – both in artists and audiences alike.

The International ScreenDance Festival 2022, in the spirit of being more inclusive, embraces new generations to the festival through the creation of two categories:

· Students of dance, choreography, film from any University.
· Professionals from around the world.

By creating a welcoming environment and fairness in the curative process, we believe that these categories demonstrate equity.

After submission review, the selected films will stream online from three different venues, both nationally and internationally. Platforms will be announced soon!

Fees:

UI Students FREE
Students $10.00 US
Professionals $20.00 US

The screening begins with a premiere of the student division and professional division on live at Filmscene and Virtually on August, 26th 2022. Viewers are encouraged to vote for their favorite film so the People’s Choice Award can be announced the last day of the screening.
