For more information on EMPAC and the DANCE MOViES Commission, or to download the guidelines and application form, please visit the EMPAC website:

DANCE MOViES Commission application process:
The EMPAC DANCE MOViES Commission is a competitive open proposal process, in which eligible artists submit a project proposal.  The initial proposals are reviewed and a small number of artists are invited to submit a detailed proposal to an international panel. The panel assesses the quality and feasibility of the proposed project and submits its recommendations to EMPAC. The commissions are awarded by EMPAC after review.

Upon awarding of the commission, the artist or collaborative team has one year to complete the project, at which point the work is premiered at EMPAC, shown at dance film festivals around the world, and credited as an EMPAC DANCE MOViES Commission.

One Response to Up-coming Dance Film Submission Deadlines

    I volunteer for the Dogwood Fine Arts Festival in Dowagiac, Mi (www.dogwoodfinearts.org)and this year we are hosting an event called, “Dancing Outside the Box.” It is our version of a mini-film festival of dance. This is the first time anything like this is being done in our rural area. Do you have any suggestions on how I can secure many entries? Because we don’t have a reputation in the dance/video world, I am very nervous about not having enough films/videos to present. Very soon our website will be updated and will include information on how to submit entries.
