Mission / description Bucharest International Dance Film Festival is a platform for exquisite dance for camera works developed by creative teams all around the world. The goal of the festival is to bring awareness of the diversity of dance forms and cinematic approaches in the contemporary art world. Faced with the camera lenses the dancers transform into cutting edge art house films with a sometimes transparent and sometimes coded meaning, challenging the viewer to a playful exchange of information about social life, politics, extreme emotions, interesting places and oddly beautiful dance aesthetics. BIDFF encourages syncretism and dialogue between movement and the diverse forms of cinema from the most traditional to experimental, animation or video installation.

In 2016 BIDFF invites film directors, choreographers, digital artists and other artists to submit their dance films and digital installations to the second edition of BIDFF. The competition is open for fiction short dance films, documentaries, animations and installations with a prize pool of 3000 euro. However, off competition, BIDFF will showcase dance feature films, both fiction and documentary. The theme of the festival is The Digital Body and welcomes films and installations that challenge the duality of essence and expression in the new era of digital communication and constant insecurity.
