Open Call for POOL 23 Film Festival Berlin

Mar. 14, 2023

POOL – Movement Art Film Festival Berlin is a film festival aimed at showcasing independent film productions featuring dance choreographies. Every edition, including this year’s, presents a selection of international dance films and constitutes a meeting place for creatives in the fields of dance, cinema, fashion and art, while highlighting the artistic interplay between dance and cinematic tools.

POOL 23 is calling for artists to apply with dance films and dance animations. Films should not be longer than 30 minutes. Longer submissions may be taken into consideration for a special screening. Projects can be submitted online via the entry form, where applicants will be asked to provide a preview link to their work. If the film is chosen, the artist will be asked to send a screening copy, the signed online application form, 2–3 digital film stills, and, optionally, a trailer and CV.

The curatorial team of POOL 23 will create a screening programme out of all the submissions, which will be shared with the Berlin audience over the course of three evenings, from September 13th to 17th, at DOCK 11 in Berlin. The selected films will be presented side by side to reflect the diversity of the festival’s scope. Selected artists will be awarded the ‘Pearls Artist Prize’ and the available fee of €6000 will be divided between the awarded artists. In addition, artists’ travel fees up to an amount will be covered and a free accommodation offered.
