Brave Enough to Dance in Public? This Contest Dares You to Do That and More
What if there was a way to get your dancing in front of the likes of Desmond Richardson, d. Sabela grimes and Vincent Paterson all at once? Just in case you needed another excuse to break out your best moves this week, the Dare to Dance in Public Film Festival is back, and Richardson, grimes and Paterson are among this year’s judges.
Dancers and non-dancers alike are invited to submit short dance films to the international online festival, with one caveat: The dancing has to take place in a public space.
This year, the festival is accepting submissions in three categories: polished, raw and student (which can fall under either of the other categories). The judges will award prizes for Best Interface of Dance & Camera, Best Original Dance/Choreography, Best Use of Location, Best Overall Performance and Best Student Film. Plus, an Audience Choice Award will be based on video popularity.
You can check out the complete list of guidelines and submit your video here. But you’d best hurry: This year’s submission deadline is November 27th.
