Frame Rush: A Place for Screendance

Frame Rush 2021: Unmasking Movement

Frame Rush, the annual screendance festival takes place in July 2021 through an immersive online platform to engage with a global audience.

With a mix of film screenings and discussions, Frame Rush will bring attention to films that explore untold truths and perspectives that connect our diverse cultures.

We invite you to submit short films that challenge and blur the boundaries of what we perceive now as dance on screen. We aim to share stories told in imaginative ways through film and movement. Making movement the medium, not the subject.

Please submit via FilmFreeway

Deadline for submissions is Monday 29 March 2021

The Frame Rush team is open to the possibility of adding a live element of the festival if UK government guidelines allow at the time of the festival.

The 2021 festival team is:

Andrea Olivares

Anneliese Bucher

Emily Adams

Jimmy Adams

Kirill Burlov

Laura Roe

Melissa Suan

Rebecca Olarescu

Sophia Wolfe

Yuaner Xu
