South London Screendance is an annual film festival, exhibiting experimental and dance short films in South London, UK. The next edition will take place at Whirled Cinema on the 7th June 2024, hosted by Experiment 6.

There will be a discussion and feedback session, opening a dialogue with audiences. In order to bring artists and their audiences together as much as possible, we share the content of discussions as well as written feedback with filmmakers and choreographers after the event.

We are looking to show short works, including short films and music videos, that create their own unique language through bringing together choreography of body and camera. Duration of films can vary between 1-25 minutes. Films don't have to be new, but have to have been released from 2019 onwards.

In 2024, all films of the festival will be considered for our Audience Award.

Film makers / Choreographers can be of any nationality and stage of their career.

All subject matters and themes are welcome, but the body, movement and/or dance must be used as medium for communication in the film.

Film must have been released from 2019 onwards.

This year we are looking for two categories:

Dance Short Film
Experimental Short Film

    Imogen & Klaudia were fabulous with communication. We loved the shared Feedback to our Film „ LUVOS migrations“ . Everything is clearly run in such a professional and smooth manner, and the films they selected looked excellent. I truly hope I can attend this event in the future, and I recommend it wholeheartedly to other filmmakers.

    I was lucky enough to be able to attend the event in London, everyone was incredibly welcoming and the event was very well organised. Everything was on time and the selection was wonderful, the location very unique! I loved that they handed feedback sheets to the audience members and the feedback was then passed on to the filmmakers who couldn't make it. Really original! Thank you so much for having me and hope to be back again soon! Really recommend the festival!
