We are excited to announce a call for entries for the fourth annual WildDogs International Screendance Festival.
W&M Dance Projects proudly presents WildDogs, a hybrid festival of international screendance works, presented virtually (online) and live, in-theatre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on September 15th through 16th, 2023. We invite dance, movement, image, and video artists to submit their dance films until May 10th, 2023.
WildDogs calls upon artists of all levels, ages, and genres to apply and encourages the representation of all movement forms from across the globe. WildDogs pays screening fees to all selected filmmakers.
WildDogs is committed to dance on film as an independent art form. Screendance expands the possibilities of movement expression through a collaboration between two niche artistic mediums. WildDogs builds an audience for new and established screendance artists and encourages dialogue within the international Screendance community.
WildDogs’ Artistic/Executive Directors are Melissa Monteros and Wojciech Mochniej, W&M’s original co-founders and dance-filmmakers themselves.
All applicants must apply on www.filmfreeway.com/wilddogs by May 10th, 2023.
