Existing Screendance Content – Midlands Made

Birmingham International Dance Festival (BIDF) and its producers DanceXchange (dx), are inviting submissions of existing Screendance films, up to 15 mins in length, to be part of the first all-digital festival BIDF TV, taking place in June 2021.

This opportunity is part of Midlands Made and is open to creatives based anywhere in the UK, however at least 50% of the programme will be made by and with Midlands-based artists & contributors.

We are particularly interested in films that explore any of the following themes:

  • Placemaking
  • Unity and Exchange – celebrating difference
  • Environment – change and awareness

Screendance shorts, documentaries, interactive work, live digital experiences, or social media content (for example TikToks, Stories, IGTV, etc.) are all welcome.

Selected films will be presented as part of BIDF TV and will receive a £150 honorarium.
