Bucharest International Dance Film Festival 2024

Filmmakers, dance artists, animators, visual artists and digital art makers are invited to submit their works for the competition section of BIDFF – Bucharest International Dance Film Festival (5–8 September 2024).

BIDFF is looking for its competitive sections for short dance films produced in the last two years that do not exceed 20 minutes in length and have a minimum quality of Full HD (1080p). The films can be either live action or animation, in genres of fiction, documentary, experimental, screen dance or musical. Films that talk about the body or the world of dance, as well as conceptual shorts oriented around the idea of movement, are also accepted.

Artists are encouraged to submit especially daring cinematic works dealing with topics interconnected with ecology, technology, body transformations and connections between past and future

The theme of the 10th anniversary edition of BIDFF, ‘Mapping Bodies’, invites artists and audiences alike to imagine the dance of the future as a map of artistic journeys across various cultural or socio-political contexts, its crossing enriching the way we communicate and express ourselves and revealing new perspectives on the contemporary world

There are awards for Best International Film (1,000 EUR) and Best Romanian Film (500 EUR), as well as free entry to all the events of the festival, excluding workshops that require a previous application.
