DEADLINE: 11:59pm Oct. 7, 2013
British Columbia artists are invited to submit innovative examples of film and video that reflect the body in motion or dance-based performance for entry in RADAR, a night of short dance films screening at the Vancity Theatre as part of the Dance In Vancouver Festival.
Single channel video will be accepted in the following categories: narratives, documentaries, abstract and experimental shorts that are staged work remade for the camera (not documentation), choreography created specifically for the camera, as well as the moving body articulated through animation and new media. All work must be no longer than 15 minutes in length. Performances videos are also considered. Please consider our curatorial question – would we rather see this dance live? Does the video represent a strong marriage of two arts, dance and film?
r a d a r is a program dedicated to the exploration and evolution of dance film through connecting artists scene by scene. Curated by filmmaker/curator Adam Sekuler and choreographer Shannon Stewart, r a d a r features movement based films of many budgets, styles and perspectives, creating a platform of local/national/international exchange that allows artists to publicly screen their work, discuss, get feedback, and meet other artists working in the same form. In 2013, r a d a r screenings took place place in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Portland, and Minneapolis.
