Screendance Africa calls for dance films from Africa


Screendance Africa will be curating a selection of African dance films for the
Tanzrauschen Festival in Germany, to be screened at a “Looping Cinema’
at the festival, taking place from 28 to 31 January 2016. Screendance Africa
welcomes any genre of dance on screen: dance video, narrative or non-narrative,
experimental, student and/or professional. Screendance Africa is looking for dance
videos that activate the crossover of dance, choreography and the cinematic
medium. The festival curators will select dance videos that demonstrate a clear
intention, that use the dance, location(s), choreography, camera movement and the edit to activate this.

Requirements for submissions:

• Films should be of good quality, produced and completed during or after 2014.
• All films must be produced in Africa, preferably made by Africans.
• Not shorter than two minutes and not longer than ten minutes.
• Recordings of live stage performances will not be considered.

Selected applicants will be requested to send their films in an mp4 file via WeTransfer.

details before 1 November 2015:

• Title
• Director’s name
