MarDelDance is thrilled to present DisDANCE Film Fest. Throughout the summer we will be live streaming the top ten films from each months curations. This summer's DisDANCE Film Festival is an extension of our Scientia Project that explores the intersection between dance and science. The world around us is changing every day; the ways we interact and connect with other people evolves as we navigate this new territory. When the world changes, art changes with it. This summer, we are looking for films and artists exploring this new reality. Art can help us understand the world around us and with this in mind each summer month will have a different theme - the effects of social distancing or physical separation; human touch and connection; technology and the way social connection evolves. We can't wait to see your work!

Our Festival will be held during the summer of 2020 with each month having a unique theme. These themes are: 
June: Spacial Awareness/Distancing 
July: Human Touch/Connection 
August: Technology

*You have until the end of the theme month to submit for that month! For example films for June theme can be submitted through June and will be announced and screened beginning July 1

*all films must have Dance as the main component of their film. 
Any and all films that adhere to this guideline will be considered! We look forward to seeing your work!


Awards will be rewarded in the following categories:

Best Choreography 
Best Theme Integration 
Viewer's Choice


Short films of all dance genres are accepted. Films must be 5 minutes or less. Films must explore the monthly themes to be considered. 

To submit, MarDelDance only accepts film submissions via, Vimeo, YouTube, or another online line screener with links and passcodes if necessary to view the film.


There is no limit to number of entries accepted as long as they are submitted separately. Each submission will require it's own entry fees. Notification dates and deadlines are merely a requirement. Each month, select films will be notified. 


After an acceptance email has been sent, filmmakers are required to send or download a copy of the film to MarDelDance. If the entrant does not allow or permit the Festival access to the film, MarDelDance reserves the right to reject the film for the festival and the acceptance email will be null and void.
