Last call to submit your shorts!  It's getting to be spring, which means it's time to get your DANCE SHORTS on...

During strange and disruptive times like these, we must remember how much we love our craft.  So we want to proceed with our open call for dance films as we do each year, in an effort to stay engaged and connected with one another's creativity!

Submission Form

~Free to submit films

~Dance films for DANCE SHORTS must be between 1-20 minutes.  We welcome any film category, but all films must have dance movement as the central element and main visual component.  

~Local NYC or regional films with a Queens element will be given priority-- whether it be shot in the borough of Queens, have cast or crew from Queens, and/or the film is premiering in Queens through DANCE SHORTS.

~Form is available through an online platform called Submittable. It requires a free user account and gives access to search for other opportunities and grant funding also present on the platform.

When will we screen amidst COVID-19?  The short answer is TBD.  Though originally scheduled for April 27 6pm at Plaxall Gallery, Long Island City, the venue (or any venue for that matter) cannot guarantee a date during these uncertain times.  However, upon the submission deadline we will be in communication about a live online screening on April 27th, as well plans to still have an in-person venue screening date as soon as possible.  Thank you for your participation and patience as we navigate this (and forge on!) together!   

Submission Form

Deadline to apply:   Wednesday April 15, 11:59 PM


DANCE SHORTS exists to bring our local dance film community together to meet, support one another's work, and foster new collaborations while highlighting Queens NYC as an artist hub.  Produced by The Physical Plant.
