Filmmakers who push the boundaries of dance and its relationship to the screen are invited to submit examples of their work to The American Dance Festival 17th Annual International Screendance Festival (ISF).
The ISF was created as a platform to showcase recent developments in the field, as well as historically relevant work, and since its inception in 1996 has screened more than 320 dance films by filmmakers from more than 20 countries. The festival, which will be held during the ADF’s 2012 season in Durham, North Carolina, is directed by Emmy-nominated director, filmmaker, and curator Douglas Rosenberg.
All entries will be adjudicated by a panel of filmmakers and choreographers. Categories include:
- Choreography for the Camera: original work made specifically for video or film or re-staged for the camera
- Documentaries: productions that include interviews or other educational elements in addition to choreography
- Experimental and Digital Technologies: work that extends the boundaries of dance and can exist only in video, film, or new technologies
- Student Work: submissions produced while the filmmakers were students or by current students
The early deadline for submissions is March 14 (entry fee $30). Final deadline is April 13 (entry fee $40). For more information, including registration, entry forms, and guidelines for submission, visit www.americandancefestival.org.
