Oregon Dance Film Commission came from the desire to offer a platform for Oregon artists working in, or interested in working in, the field of Dance Film. The collaborative aspect between filmmaker and choreographer is central to this project. Our ideal is that 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.
Portland Dance Film Fest will select two individuals or one team of filmmakers and choreographers to film, edit, color, and finalize a 2-8 minute dance film by September 2019 to be screened during the 2019 festival.
While it is our goal to eventually be able to fund the whole project, at this time we can offer the recipients a modest stipend as well as assistance with renting equipment. Throughout the filmmaking process there will be several check points, as well as constructive critique.
