The DanceBARN ScreenDANCE Festival takes place every year during the DanceBARN Festival in Battle Lake, MN. Official selections for the 2021 ScreenDANCE Festival will presented to a live audience during a free outdoor screening downtown Battle Lake, Minnesota. Any screendances made during the festival also premiere during the showing.
Again this year, we are offering a discounted submission category for screendances made in Minnesota!

DanceBARN seeks screendance submissions, dances made for the screen, for our 2021 season. Submissions must, in some way, employ both choreographic concepts and the language of film. Documentation of live performances will not be accepted.
Submission of films and supplementary documentation must take place exclusively through FilmFreeway. Selected films must provide a high-quality download of their film, artist bios, 1-2 screenshots or production photos, and as much supplementary information about the film as possible. Due to the brief one-evening length of our screening, preference will be given to films under 15 minutes.
Artists must have copyright permissions for all submitted media and be able to demonstrate these rights upon request. By submitting, the artists grant DanceBARN the right to screen the film for the duration of the festival and agree to indemnify and hold DanceBARN harmless from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities arising from any copyright disputes.
Lastly, because our festival screening is free and open to the public we cannot accept submissions that include extreme violence or nudity.
