Moving Body Festival Open Call for Submissions


MOVING BODY is a festival devoted to connecting artists, mediums, audiences and communities through contemporary dance, performances and films that are on the border of video art and dance.

At the heart of the initiative and the design of the program are the questions – What makes us move? How do we move to? Towards what we are moving?

Where: Varna, Bulgaria
When: 05-08.11.2020

Deadline for applications: 15 June 2020

Depending on the results of the funding processes of the festival, we will do our best to reward one or two more films with financial support. Also, one film will be rewarded with the Audience Award. One film in each category will be rewarded with an Encouragement Award for its contribution to the evolving and intriguing field which brings dance/movement and film/video together.
