Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I APPLY?

To apply to Dance on Film is via FilmFreeway, the world's #1 way to discover and submit to film festivals and creative contests. Please get acquainted with the submission site at FilmFreeway.com. In order to apply, you must submit a YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Drive file version of your finished work. Please DO NOT send files via Dropbox; we will not be able to view these.

WHAT GENRE OF FILM ARE YOU ACCEPTING?

We are accepting films that highlight or incorporate dance performance and choreography. Cinematic design alongside central choreography themes should be used to reveal central themes of the film, whether these themes be connected to a narrative or story, states of being, or more experimental and formal concerns.

IS THERE A TIME LIMIT?

Yes, 10 minutes maximum.

CAN I SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE PIECE?

Yes, you may submit more than one piece. However, each piece will need to be submitted separately, and a separate application fee is required for each piece.

CAN MY VIDEO SUBMISSION BE A WORK IN PROGRESS? DOES IT HAVE TO BE FINISHED?

Please do not send any raw footage - we'll need to view the film in its final version in order to consider it for the festival.
The film you submit cannot exceed 10 minutes. If you wish to use an excerpt from a longer film, please have an edited excerpt finalized by the application deadline. The more detailed notes you leave in your application the better.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF I’VE BEEN SELECTED?

All applicants will receive an email by the notification date MARCH 21st. (If you do not receive an email by this time, please contact us directly.) If you are selected, you will be asked to promptly accept our invitation and send more specific information for your screening. If you do not meet our acceptance deadline, we will assume you are not interested in participating and will give your spot to another artist.

IF CHOSEN, WHERE WILL BE THE SCREENING?

The Festival will be screened via VIMEO ON DEMAND. We will provide you with a link to the online screening.

DO PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE A STIPEND?

We are unable to provide artists with stipends this year. You will be able to participate in the Artist Reception, film screening, and all dance concerts. If you are able to attend, you will have the opportunity to engage in a moderated Director's Chat on stage immediately following the screening.

DO YOU PROVIDE WAIVERS FOR THE APPLICATION FEES?

We do not provide waivers for the application fees.

WILL MY FILM RECEIVE ANY FEEDBACK OR CRITIQUE?

The screening will include a published program with information about the chosen pieces and artists. Audience members will vote for the “Audience Favorite” awards and the festival judges will award the Fata Morgana to the festival winner as well awards for the other categories.
