The International Choreographic Festival of Blois will take place in Blois, France, from July 4th to 13h.

The Festival aims to bring the art of dance to the Loire Valley Region in France and to democratize this art form by offering performances, dance short-film screenings, master classes, performance workshops and community outreach events.

There will be 2 film screenings of about an hour each in a movie theatre right in the center of the city of Blois.

It is a unique festival that aims to feature choreography for the camera, dance documentaries and any short-film that emphasizes movement.

We encourage every dance and/or movement related short-film to apply.

In the case that film-makers and/or their team can attend the festival, we can arrange a Q&A with the audience after the screenings.

Film makers will have a chance to receive the following awards:
- Audience Choice Award
- Jury Award

All selected short-films will have the opportunity to get more screenings after this festival and film directors will receive a digital version of the program if requested.

- Max running time : 25 minutes
- Applicants must have all necessary rights and releases to all presented persons, audio and visual media presented in the film
- By submitting your film, you grant the International Choreographic Festival of Blois the rights to use excerpts of your film/photography in any promotional materials on their website and all social media
- If accepted, you agree to abide by deadlines for submitting other required program materials (including pictures, biographies, description of the film, etc)

    Nous sommes heureux d'avoir été sélectionné au Festival Chorégraphique International Blois Danse. Nous avons pu participer à ce bel évènement pluridisciplinaire. Il faut savoir qu'il regroupe differentes partie. Une partie avec des spectacles (des créations de chorégraphes internationaux) dans un magnifique théâtre, une autre partie avec des stages donnés par des chorégraphes invités proposant différentes esthétiques de danse aux festivaliers et la dernière partie une superbe programmation de films venant du monde entier sur deux jours. Nous avons été accueilli avec une bienveillance et une générosité incroyable. Nous avons pu également échanger avec les spectateurs au sujet de notre film. Nous avons également pu créer des liens avec les danseurs qui se produisaient sur scène. Si vous êtes réalisateurs, danseurs ou tout simplement passionnés de danse ce festival est incontournable et fait pour vous. Merci pour ce merveilleux moment à Blois. Merci à toute l'équipe de l'organisation.

    We were over the moon that our film was selected for this year’s festival! I am based in Los Angeles and sadly was unable to secure travel plans to attend the festival itself this year, but what I can say is the coordinators were very helpful, kind, and generous! They provided superb French subtitles for us to add to our film, answered all of our questions, and I felt their festival film trailer was absolutely professional and top notch! Considering the festival also includes (as per their website) live dance performances and dance classes throughout, I would definitely try to make it over to Blois one of these summer’s to actually experience it!

    We are very happy and honoured, that our film was chosen for the programm this year. Unfortunately we could not attend.
    Looking at the festival - it has a wonderful concept altogether. Dancing, choreography, performances and of course the wonderful film-programm.

    We had the honour to be featured on this festival, thank you again for encouraging the creation of dance on screen. The communication was flawless, even after the festival. Keep in mind that the festival is a choreography festival and the main focus is this and therefor is not a film festival. I would definitely consider submitting again to this festival.
