Inspired Dance Film Festival
Inspired Dance Film Fest Australia was born last year to offer a place where dance on film can thrive and be seen. Where dancers, choreographers and filmmakers can meet to create exciting new work and show it to a new audience.
The inaugural Inspired Dance Film Fest Australia, held in November 2020, was a huge success, attracting nearly 100 entries from around the world. They brought to the screen “movement and theatricality that touched the emotions and the imagination” (Sydney Morning Herald).
Inspired Dance takes a big leap forward in 2021 with an expanded program that includes masterclasses, filmmaking workshops, discussion panels and multiple film screenings over two three-day events.
It starts in July with Inspired Dance Youth Film Festival, a stand-alone event this year that will run from 9-11 July. It will feature outstanding opportunities for young filmmakers to learn from leading industry professionals in the lead-up to a red-carpet Gala Screening and Awards Presentation on 11 July at Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter.
Entries are invited from individual students aged 13-17, part-time and full-time dance schools, and secondary schools. Entries close 31 May (or save with an Early Bird submission before 9 April). Awards will be given in twelve categories, including films made on a mobile device.
