Deadline: September 9, 2019

The RT Collective are pleased to announce the third edition of Screen:Moves--a screening program of short dance videos. Presented in collaboration with Dancemakers, Screen:Moves invites artists to conceive and create original works for this event.

The program operates on a "micro-commissioning" model. We do not program existing works. Instead, we invite artists to submit proposals for new works they would like to create and then support that process of creation.
 Selected projects will receive a screening fee of $250 and be screened as part of the program in February 2020 as part of the Progress Festival.
  • We accept proposals for new works that are conceived and created specifically for this program. Please do not submit works you have already created for consideration.
  • Collaborative teams must have at least one artist based in Canada.
  • The program is geared specifically to works created with all forms of video (rather than works shot on film).
  • Submissions using accessible video technologies like smart phones, iPads, or webcams, are encouraged.
  • Completed works should be 4 minutes or less. 
  • Projects should address or feature the medium of dance in some way.
  • Formats can include: experimental, narrative, comedic, documentary and animated works.

  • Proposals must be submitted via email using the attached form.
  • Proposals submitted without the form or with incomplete information are ineligible.
  • Proposals must include a link to one previously created video work. The jury will watch a maximum of 4 minutes.
  • First time video makers are welcome. In the event you have never made a video, include a link to some other artistic project you have previously created. 
  • Proposals received after the deadline will not be accepted.
  • Deadline for proposals: September 9, 2019
  • Selected artists will be notified by September 13, 2019
  • Completed works must be received by January 13, 2020

The submission form is available here.
