Call For Artists
ADF’s Movies By Movers is an annual festival dedicated to the celebration of the conversation between the body and the camera. We love sharing the history of the collaboration between the ephemeral art of live movement and the perpetual nature of film. And we love receiving new expressions of these forms from all over the world from artists like you. Students, emerging artists, seasoned professionals, even those who would not consider themselves “artists,” but have great ideas, find room on our screens to share their craft.
While ADF’s Movies By Movers is by all accounts, a dance film festival, our definition of dance is broad and includes whatever you consider to be dance. Modern dance, ballet, jazz, cirque, parkour, skating, sports. We love it all. We screen it all! We also love all genres of filmmaking – experimental, documentary, narrative, animation. We invite you to keep us on our toes – literally – and help us keep pushing boundaries and redefining definitions.
We invite site-specific, media-specific work which demonstrates thoughtful collaboration between movement and film to apply. In other words, we are not looking for archival footage, but work which highlights experimentation, visual intimacy and attention to detail. We welcome work by student, emerging and established artists. Films of any genre – experimental, documentary, animation, narrative, – are welcome, as long as movement (of any genre) is a strong component.
Films are screened at the American Dance Festival in the summer, then again in the fall at Appalachian State University. In the year following, artists have the opportunity to have their films screened at partner institutions across the country and abroad. More details upon acceptance.
2020 information to be released soon!
