Opportunity for young dance film makers
PrivateDances, a 2010 Next Wave Festival project, is seeking young aspiring dance filmmakers.
Next Wave and ReelDance are commissioning the creation of up to five new short dance-films for a new project in the 2010 Next Wave Festival.
Next Wave wants to hear from young Australian artists who are keen to experiment with the medium of dance on screen.
The films will be screened as part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival’s PrivateDances, an adventurous dance/food/wine project conceived by choreographer/curator Natalie Cursio. PrivateDances will be focused around intimate encounters and conversation based on dance. In addition to receiving a $1000 fee for the complete works, selected filmmakers will also receive “Arts Bus” travel passes to attend the 2010 ReelDance Festival of Dance on Screen in Sydney, where they will receive free tickets to all screenings and will have the opportunity to talk with and see the work of an array of national and international dance-film artists.
The deadline for proposals is Wednesday October 21, 2009.
