Spring Dancefilm Festival main goal is to show the latest dancefilm trends from all around the world and we aim to sensitise those who are unfamiliar with or less informed about new ways of making cinema: stories can be explained through the body movement and cinematography. Now, we also screen online the films!

This edition we have a new section, curated in collaboration with Breaking 8 (Italy): we are searching for videodance works inspired by literary works or/and incorporate, interpret, transpose literature/poetry/writings in audiovisual medium through dance. Please note that we are looking for dance films with a precise and recognizable reference to well-known literary / poetic works.

Laurel as Official Selection for all selected shortfilms and oportunities to be screened in other places + Symbolic cash reward to the "Best" of each competitive category

We want to culturally enrich our town -Cerdanyola- and surroundings, so we do not charge any fee to the present public for watching the films. Unfortunately, we can’t hold yet an awards ceremony. And we can’t grant any travel/accommodation expense if the selected author(s) films want to be present at the festival.

We accept any film created from TWO YEARS AGO AND ONWARDS may participate in the festival. Films participating in the festival are not required to be a premiere, as well as films screened elsewhere and/or published on the Internet. Unfinished projects are not accepted.

Please, read the descriptions of the categories and choose which one is closest to your film.

We require at least English, French or Spanish audio or subtitles for the selection process if needed.

The author(s) of each film must have both the authorship of the film and the rights of other content of third persons appearing in the film.

    Being based in Canada, we had to participate in the festival from afar, but the communication from the organiser was good and we enjoyed watching the wide range of featured films. Thanks for the selection.
