LDF 2021 Summer/Fall Call to Artists
The London Dance Festival invites local dance artists to tell us what works for you this year. This form is part-application, part-survey. Do you have a dance piece to share or a workshop to offer? When and how would it work? Please tell us as much as you can, and get in touch at info@londondancefestival.ca if you have questions.

Here is what we know right now:
*We have decided to postpone this year's festival event until late August or September, in the hopes that we can celebrate dance together, outdoors.
*Dance artists of all career stages and styles are welcome to apply.
*BIPOC Artists are encouraged to apply, and to tell us how to serve you better.
*For outdoor performances, movement and music content must be appropriate for a family audience. For indoor performances and films, if your piece is not family-friendly, please explain why
*Preference will be given to artists hailing from or currently living in London, Ontario.
*Artists selected to present work will be awarded an honorarium.
*Performances, workshops, and video shoots MUST maintain appropriate COVID-19 safety protocols.
*If you are proposing a dance film, it must meet our Minimum Video Requirements (see below)
*Applicants for late summer/fall will be contacted in July or early August

Questions? Email us at info@londondancefestival.ca OR learn more at www.londondancefestival.ca

Minimum Video Requirements:
*Videos must be filmed in a minimum resolution of 1080p, in landscape format (horizontally)
*Video locations must be chosen thoughtfully, and should add to the performance instead of distract from it
*Lighting and its relation to the visibility and the mood of the dance should be considered
*Video angles must be considered ahead of filming. Which angles will help the viewer to feel more present and connected to the dance?
*Videos should include credits (choreographer, dancers, videography, editing, music, etc)
*Videos should be submitted in .mp4 format
