The 2016 ScreenDance Festival is requesting submissions for its 3rd annual Dance Film Festival. Submissions will be included in the primary program for the festival on April 29th, a touring program throughout Sweden, as well as an international showing during 2016. Swedish and international dancers of any style are invited to submit their work.
This year, the International ScreenDance Selection and the Swedish Screendance Selection will be announced separately. The Swedish Screendance Selection will be part of a national competition, the winner of which will receive a place in the arts residency program at Kultivera in Tranås, Sweden. For more information about this program visit www.kulturresidens.com.
The ScreenDance residency consists of an enticing two week program to continue developing a project in the fields of dance and film. Kultivera will provide and finance the accommodations and studio space for the artist at the organisation’s location at Västra Järnvägsgatan 13, Tranås, Sweden. Kultivera will additionally support the artist by granting them a per diem for the duration of the program. The announcement of the ScreenDance residency will be held on April 28th, 2016 in Stockholm at Dansmuseet.
Submissions are being accepted from October 1st to January 1st, 2016. Artists will be notified if their work has been selected via mail, an announcement on the Facebook page, and on the website by March 1st, 2016. Artists may submit their films directly to the website www.screendancefestival.com.
