We are excited to announce a call for entries for the fifth annual WildDogs International Screendance Festival.

W&M Dance Projects proudly presents WildDogs, a hybrid festival of international screendance works, presented virtually (online) and live, in-theatre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on September 13th through 15th, 2024. We invite dance, movement, image, and video artists to submit their dance films until May 10th, 2024 with a special extended deadline of June 7th, 2024.

WildDogs calls upon artists of all levels, ages, and genres to apply and encourages the representation of all movement forms from across the globe. WildDogs pays a small screening fee to all selected filmmakers.

WildDogs is committed to dance on film as an independent art form. Screendance expands the possibilities of movement expression through a collaboration between the niche artistic mediums of dance and cinema. WildDogs builds an audience for new and established screendance artists and encourages dialogue within the international Screendance community.

WildDogs’ Artistic/Executive Directors are Melissa Monteros and Wojciech Mochniej, W&M’s original co-founders and dance-filmmakers themselves.

All applicants must apply on www.filmfreeway.com/wilddogs by June 7th, 2024.

WildDogs is a project of W&M Dance Projects.

Our mission is to develop an open, diverse, and exciting screendance festival for international viewers, connecting and stimulating audiences through a curated selection of the best of dance on film from around the world.  We strive to create an event that stimulates, eliminates boundaries, inspires dialogue, and sets new trends in dance and cinema.
