Call for African Dance Videos Made by Africans

Do you have a short dance video that you would like Screendance Africa to showcase at one of our upcoming mini dance film festivals? We welcome any genre of dance on screen: documentaries, dance video, narrative or non-narrative, experimental, student and /or professional. Most importantly we are looking for dance videos that activate the cross over of dance, choreography and the cinematic medium. We will select dance videos that demonstrate a clear intention, that use the dance, location(s), choreography, camera movement and the edit to activate this.

What we are looking for:

• Films should be of good quality, produced and completed during or after 2011.

• All films must be produced in Africa, preferably made by Africans.

• Not shorter than 2mins and not longer than 10 mina

• No recordings of live stage performances will be considered.

• Promotional teasers of no more than 10 minutes for Dancers, Choreographers or Companies will be considered for our looped dance showcase.

Please submit a DVD or online link with the following details:
