Bucharest International Dance Film Festival is the only cinema event in Romania dedicated to dance films. BIDFF – Bucharest International Dance Film Festival looks towards the future and tries to envision it. This year we use utopian | dystopian impulses as an instrument for reflection and
dance films as a medium. By a surprising and meaningful coincidence, as we are all confronting the global pandemic, utopia | dystopia is the theme of the BIDFF in 2020. This fragile balance could generate creative or critical strategies to present or to contemplate the world and the future, as they are or as they will become. The BIDFF curatorial approach goes towards trying to decipher, shape, transform or revolutionize these concepts. Besides our regular international and national competition dedicated to short dance films, we also hold the new competitional category for musicals, introduced last year. We also highly encourage you to apply if you have a movement themed animation or if you have a short film revolving around the concept of utopia and dystopia. BIDFF awards excellence, novelty and courage in filmmaking, with a prize pool of 3000 euro.
