REELING: Dance for Screen Festival (Deadline January 31, 2020)

Call for Submissions

In May 2021, Mile Zero Dance will present REELING: Dance for Screen Festival, with a goal to celebrate all sorts of movement captured on film or video. We seek short pieces that are 10 mins or under in length, that portray any and all forms of dance or movement-focus works on film. Successful submissions will be displayed in the month of May through Mile Zero Dance digitally, on community screens, and at a drive-in event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Movement-based pieces are not restricted to dance such as ballet, hip-hop or jazz, but any type of movement with or without musical accompaniment. Cultural dances, work from emerging and/or under-represented artists, and interdisciplinary collaborations are also accepted and encouraged. REELING seeks pieces that best showcase how the human body moves, and how that is enhanced by capturing it on film.

Along with your submission, please provide:

A one-page max elevator pitch about your piece, including date completed, length, title, and other relevant info.

Your lead artist’s bio, headshot, a link to website if possible.

Please include where you are from.

Please provide online links to view work.

There is no submission fee, and an honorarium will be provided to successful applicants.

Short Multi-Disciplinary Acts (Deadline: Ongoing)

Short Multidisciplinary Acts, 10 minutes or less, for paid cabaret situations such as Dirt Buffet Cabaret, Salons or other mixed evenings such as fundraisers.

Pleases send submission to info@milezerodance.com including a video clip (online), short bio, and a description of work to be presented. Any media considered.
