Film Submission Requirements
Deadline for Submissions – April 3rd 2015
Festival Description – The Richmond Dance Festival will consist of performances and film screenings presented by dance artists located in the Richmond, VA area. We are looking for all kinds of styles of dance films to show the diversity of artists that call Richmond their home. Dance Film submissions will be presented on one evening the weekend of April 30th-May 2nd and will be adjudicated by a panel of judges for a monetary prize. All artists involved will be expected to assist with the promotion and production of the performances. Submissions can be entered at http://www.dogtowndancetheatre.com/.
The Richmond Dance Festival was created for the purpose of celebrating the art of dance regardless of category or genre, so all films submitted must have dance as the main part of their content. Because of the nature of the festival and to see as many submissions as possible, submitted work may be NO LONGER THAN 15 minutes.
For pre-screening purposes, send DVDs or URLs for online submissions. Please do not send film prints for pre-screening. During the festival works can be screened on Quicktime, Blu-ray or standard DVD.
The festival is designed to have no regard for traditional categories like fiction, nonfiction, animation or experimental. The festival will select the films that they feel best represent the art of dance film regardless of type or category.
SELECTION AND SCREENING
Those entrants who become finalists will be notified by April 11th, 2015. The Richmond Dance Festival Planning Committee will pre-screen and select the finalists, whose work will be featured in the Friday, May 1st, 2015 film screening of the Richmond Dance Festival.
Two cash awards will be given the night of the film screening after having previously been adjudicated by a panel.
