Building on the success of last year, we have extended this year’s festival to a 3-day event that includes dance workshops, dance filmmaking classes, discussion panels with notable dance filmmakers, multiple film screenings, culminating in our red carpet Gala Screening and Awards Presentation.
This season sees the inclusion of new award categories including Best Live Capture Dance Film, Best Mobile Device Dance Film, and Best Documentary or Feature Dance Film Award, giving filmmakers greater scope in 2021.
Inspired Dance Film Festival is an international dance on film festival held in Australia, providing platforms & pathways that educate, celebrate & showcase dance filmmakers globally. Our inaugural festival gala screening at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter Sydney presented an impressive display of finalists from 90 films submitted across 16 countries.
