dance Film Review - regulation


Open Call


Artists, choreographers, performers and videomakers are invited to take this opportunity and participating to Interfaccia Digitale, a dance film review, which will be held in Pesaro on 18th September 2020, during the 17th edition of HANGARTFEST Contemporary Dance Festival.


The Festival is a container with an intimate vocation aimed at an audience of enthusiasts of dance and of the new languages of the contemporary scene, who are capable of giving life to an authentic context of sharing.


Objective and applicants


The objective of the invitation is to select original dance short films to be included at Interfaccia Digitale, an event which is part of the programme of HANGARTFEST.


Applicants are artists and video makers of any nationality, residing in Italy or abroad and over the age of 18 years old.


Interfaccia Digitale Award


The submitted applications, which comply to the terms and conditions of  this call, will be examined by the Artistic Director of the Festival which will make the selection by choosing, from among all the applications, a shortlist of 30 works that will be showcased at the dance film review Interfaccia Digitale. The Director, in its discretion, may decide to change the number of the selected works.


The selected works presented at Interfaccia Digitale will undergo the judgment of the audience of the Festival, who will intervene spontaneously as passionate non-expert spectators. They will be able to express their preferences and motives during a public meeting, which will take place at the end of the event in the presence of the Festival's Artistic Director.


The author of the work who obtains the most preferences will win the Interfaccia Digitale Award, consisting of a grant of € 1,500 (all inclusive) to be spent on the production of a new short dance film to be realized in the following months at Teatro Maddalena in Pesaro, during an artistic residency whose times and methods of realization will be agreed with the Festival.


The new dance film must include moments of interaction with the community of the historic city center. The created video will be presented as a guest work (out of competition) at the following Interfaccia Digitale in 2021.
