InShadow - Lisbon Screendance Festival

Open Call 2020: https://vimeo.com/315958368

InShadow is a reference in the field of contemporary artistic creation and curatorship, with an emphasis on the convergence of body and image.

Our yearly program includes international competitions of screendance, dance-related documentary films and animations, in addition to performances, workshops, masterclasses, exhibitions and installations.

Submission fees go towards allowing the festival to subsist and as a means to support featured filmmakers to join us every year.

A minimum of 10 awards is to be given every year, decided by 4 separate panels. Awards range from a year-long presence in festivals worldwide to monetary prizes, scholarships or artist-in-residence programs. Special mentions will be handed out at the discretion of the juries.

SCREENDANCES that fail to qualify for the main competition may still find a spot - should the director accept - in one of our video-installations.

DOCUMENTARY FILMS should tackle the subject of dance/performance.

ANIMATIONS must be suitable for school-age children and should ideally focus on the subjects of dance, movement, inclusion or technology.

    An absolute gem of a festival.
    Presenting a wide variety of interesting films, providing ample opportunity for the film-makers to meet and network, and its location in the heart of Lisbon provides some excellent culinary delight! Also, the organisers are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet!!! I would love to attend this festival again in the future...
