Australian Dance Theatre (ADT) is having an open call for submissions for works by Australasian filmmakers and dancemakers to be screened in Adelaide as part of FLOW, the dance-on-screen series to be presented by ADT’s International Centre for Choreography (ICC) in partnership with Mercury Cinema in August.
FLOW features two programs – Program 1 with Australasian films curated from an open call and Program 2 with a selection of international films screened at the 2021 edition of the renowned Cinedans Festival in Amsterdam. Each evening of FLOW will include two sessions (featuring both programs) with a special guest speaker.
ADT is seeking submissions for the Australasian Films program, which will be curated by ADT Artistic Director and award-winning filmmaker Garry Stewart and ICC Producer Margie Medlin. “We are looking for what is emerging, what is crucial and what is possible within the medium of cinematic dance,” ADT noted in a post about the open call.
The focus of the program is short dance films up to 15 minutes duration from Australian and New Zealand filmmakers, made between January 2019 and this July. There is no particular theme required. Selection criteria will instead focus on what is emerging, what is crucial and what is possible within the medium of cinematic dance. Submissions can be from various genres of dance film: experimental, documentary, animation and/or music videos. Entries are open until 4 July.
