Multiplié Dance Film is an annual dance film competition, presented by DansiT, in collaboration with the wonderful Minimalen Short Film Festival in Trondheim.

Multiplié Dance Film highlights different voices, bodies, and life experiences through a broad range of high quality dance films from all over the world. The competition is based on the unique profile of the Multiplié Dance Festival, which explores and bends the art of dance into new, surprising and exciting forms. Through Multiplié, we seek to challenge preconceptions of what a dance film can be, or look like, and of who can perform and choreograph dance, or create dance films. This is the 8th edition of Multiplié Dance Film.

For the first time in 2022 - Multiplié Dance Film expanded to include a seperate Nordic Dance Film competition, in addition to the International competition!

    It was very nice to be a part of the Multiplié, the communication was great and, even though it had to be online, I felt the warmth and dedication of everyone in the festival.

  • This is a great festival in a beautiful city. There was a great selection of dance films. The dance films are shown as part of wonderful short film festival 'Minimalen'. The organisers are friendly and welcoming, the films are projected in very high quality. There are opportunities to network with other filmmakers and support with accommodation . Thank you Multiplie Dance Film !
