Call for Dance Films

dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac) is the only Toronto-based biennial summer festival of contemporary dance. The not-for-profit festival was founded in 2000 by Yvonne Ng under the umbrella of princess productions and since that time, eight festivals of dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac) have been produced.

d:mic/fac Festival fills a mid-market niche by presenting culturally-diverse and independent contemporary dance artists. Due to its multi-disciplinary nature, d:mic/fac is a excellent choice for both seasoned art aficionados as well as new dance audiences.

We are looking for short films (less than 20 minutes in length) in any dance genre to showcase in the Betty Oliphant Theatre during the festival (August 13 – 16, 2015). These curated films will be part of Arts Encounters program and will be screened in dedicated room off the main lobby. There will be two screenings. Selected filmmakers will receive an honorarium.

Individuals or groups may submit more than one film.

Please submit submissions postmarked by Monday, June 8th, 2015 by 4:00 p.m. to the following address below:
