Call for entries
Montage Video Dance Festival 2010

Deadline for entries: Wednesday 26 August 2009

Not how we move but what moves us
                                 Pina Bausch

Next year's theme honors the passing of Pina Bausch, Merce Cunningham and Augusto Boal - all icons of our dance and theatre heritage. Each one of us has been touched by their influence, ideas and unique vision. May they continue to inspire us!

Montage therefore calls on screendance makers to send video works that reflect "not how we move but what moves us", for the 2010 festival.

Criteria: Video works should be between 2 to 20 minutes, involve movement, dance, choreography and the moving image made specifically for the screen and should not be filmed live performance, nor documentaries. They may be linear, nonlinear or abstract in narrative. They may include animation or special effects to amplify the intention of the video maker.
Format: DVD, PAL
Fees: There is no entry fee
