International Portrait Film Festival: Open call for screendance DL 11.10.


International Portrait Film Festival (IPFF) welcomes films featuring images and characters, telling stories, cracking the surface of perceptions and reaching the core.

Where: Bulgaria
When: 15-25 November

Deadline for applications: 11 October 2020

IPFF launches its first edition in 2020 with confidence in the ability of the portrait film to move, affect, educate, transform.

The portrait is the focus of the films that will be screened at IPFF. We are looking for portrait films that have already been completed, as well as such that will be created with the concrete idea of ‘portrait’. Of a person. A group of people. An object. Something invisible, but substantial. Of the self. Or of something else.

The categories in which the candidate films fall are not determined by genre (comedy, drama, horror, etc.), type of film (fiction, documentary), but by the type of portrait that is at the centre of the work. We have included a special screendance category as we firmly believe in the potential of the symbiosis between film and dance. In the value of screendance as an academic field, practice, language and art form.

Apply through FilmFreeway: We look forward to your portrait screendance creations!

Costs for participants: 15 USD
