Velocity’s Next Dance Cinema is accepting submissions from NW artists and filmmakers around the globe. Artists are invited to submit innovative works of screen dance that reflect the body in motion or dance-based performance. Next Dance Cinema is part of Next Fest NW, Velocity’s annual new works series celebrating what’s happening in contemporary dance performance and cinema. Selected works will be screened on December 4 at Northwest Film Forum.
Video will be accepted in the following categories: staged work remade for the camera (not documentation), choreography created specifically for the camera, as well as the moving body articulated through animation, new media, and installation.
