Portland Dance Film Fest will select two Oregon-based individuals – one filmmaker and one choreographer – to film, edit, color, and finalize a 2-8 minute dance film by September 2020 to be screened during the 2020 festival.
Oregon Dance Film Commission came from the desire to offer a platform for Oregon artists interested in working in the field of Dance Film. ODFC is for artists who have never made a professional dance film but are already established in the field of filmmaking or choreography. The collaborative aspect between filmmaker and choreographer is central to this project. The goal of ODFC is for two artists who normally would not have come together to make a Dance Film, join forces, learn what is it to work together, and create a new and unique work. It is PDFF’s role to offer support, guidance, a timeline/deadline, promotion, and a world premiere screening within the Festival.
