Fiver is an spanish platform for research, education, production and distribution of dance film and new media. Since 2012 we launch, among other actions, the FIVER Awards.

We are looking for all genre fiction, experimental, animation and documentary short films that explore the possibilities of the union between cinema and dance. We look forward for watching new collaborations between filmmakers and choreographers, crazy experiments that use the representation of the body on the screen and unique stories that work with movement to break narrative boundaries.

We invite you to submit your works, hoping to discover fresh and unique visions, the incorporation of new techniques, and moments that breathe life.

This year we will share 4.000€ in prizes.

Best National Film. (Best spanish production / spanish director, producer, main performer or choreographer)

Experimental award. Best work that explores new narrative techniques (animation included)

    Intriguing curation - not just because it included my film DANCING IS AN OLD FRIEND. During this time when travel is not easy, and an online presence doesn't fully substitute, FIVER still managed to make this distant filmmaker feel welcome. I hope to attend some day in the future...
