Spring Dancefilm Festival main goal is to show the latest dancefilm trends from all around the world, with quality films in a wide budget range. In addition, it aims 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. We want to culturally enrich Cerdanyola -our town- and surroundings, so do not charge any fee to the present public for watching the films.
This year we celebrate our 5th edition, so we are trying to do something special!
This festival is organised by a non-profit association, Plat Artístic, without sponsors or any other resources more that the money we, as a individual people and members, have. That means that the prize may depend of the quantity of (paying) submissions we get.
But this year is very special to us, and with the 5th anniversary of our festival, we made an extra effort to give a better symbolic cash reward to the following “best”:
--> The Best Dancefilm
--> The Best Docudance
--> The selected longer film
Moreover, all the selected films will receive a Laurel as Official Selection of the [C]Screen Dancefilm Spring Festival.
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 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.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The following terms and conditions are accepted upon submission of each film and apply if the film is selected for the festival.
The selected films will be exhibited during the dates of this year's edition and may be screened in the following editions of the festival as "Selected in past editions". We are collaborating with different cities and dance festivals, so the film can be part of a tour (within this year, but not necessarily in the same month as our main event).
The author(s) of the film agree to let extracts of a maximum of 10% of their film to be used for publicity purposes relative to the festival or activities of the Plat Artístic association. An eventual trailer of the film may be used on TV, Internet and/or other communication media.
The film will be part of the archive of Plat Artístic. The film won't be published nor distributed to any other person or organisation. However, it may be shown completely or partly during educational and/or formation activities organized by the Plat Artistic association with its close collaborators (Cineclub Xiscnèfils, Taller Cinema Cerdanyola, Museu d'Art de Cerdanyola, Cineclub Manresa and Choreoscope International Dance Film Festival). For eventual screenings out of the previous situations, the author(s) will be previously asked for consent. Remuneration for each projection is not guaranteed.
Physical support of films is sent at the author(s)' own risk. The Plat Artístic is not responsible of the damage the physical support may suffer. There will be no refunds or devolutions. After the festival, the Plat Artístic has the right to keep any eventual physical content for the archive of the association.
If you have any question, please contact the festival organisators.
We ask for a symbolic submission fee to cover some organisation expenses. The submission is done only via FilmFreeway where you could see the fees per category and deadlines.
