The Mexico City Videodance Festival, in colaboration with Red Nacional de Arte, calls choreographers, filmmakers, companies and artists in general to register their works in the fifth edition of the FIVideodanza, which will take place from 10 to September 13, 2020.

Best Videodance
Honorific Mentions

All national and foreign works can apply, completed between the 2018-2020 period, without having to present a minimum or maximum duration.

The festival will accept all kinds of videodances, with special interest towards those that imply a social impact, created in order to be shared with the public of Mexico City, making use of any body language, whose choreography is articulated with the cinematographic language, regardless of whether they have a documentary or animation tendency, to mention some of the audiovisual and aesthetic possibilities. For the fifth edition, we will also program videodances focused on environmental conservation.

All the works can be also registered in the online videodance selection, which will be shown on the official festival website (festivalvideodanza.com) during the event dates.

Works can be registered at Festhome. All options are available at the end of this document. Works will be received from the moment of publication of the call and until 23:59 hours on August 9, 2020. (Mexico City, Central Time).

The registration fee for each work is 14 USD. Participants can submit up to 5 works for consideration. The works to form part of each section will be chosen by a selection committee, whose decision is final.

70% of the profits earned by the registration fees will be used to award the best videodance. In case of the winner do not claim their prize in the next 3 months, it will be understood that they waive it and can be used to cover the expenses in the next edition of the festival.

Selected works could be part of national and international exhibitions during 2020-2021. By participating, the applicant also accepts the use of frames or segments of the piece registered for the dissemination and development of printed or electronic materials such as posters, postcards, flyers, videos or virtual catalog.
