Thank you for your interest in being a part of The Outlet Dance Project. Submissions for 2015 are due no later than 11.59pm EST, July 31, 2015. Proposed films should be 15 minutes or less. Please submit your proposal to, subject line: films 2015. Please provide an online video link or download of the entire film for consideration. Though you are welcome to submit works in progress, priority consideration will be given to complete films. If you prefer to send us a DVD, please email us for address instructions. 


The Outlet Dance Project's Dance on Film Festival features a variety of short films directed and/or choreographed by women. This year, the evening-length event will be held on Thursday, Oct. 1st at 7pm. The Thursday evening screening will be followed by a brief Q & A with the filmmakers and/or choreographers (please still apply, even if you are not able to be physically present.) In addition, at least two films will be selected to be screened throughout the day on October 3rd (the live dance portion of the festival).

We seek short dance-films that not only show excellence in this genre, but ideally, have a connection to site-specificity, architecture, and/or sculpture as well. The festival is open to women-identifying filmmakers and choreographers everywhere. 


You may submit up to two film proposals per application fee (or one film and one live performance proposal per application fee). Whether your film is selected or not, you will be entitled to a complementary screening for the Thursday evening event as part of your $15 application fee.


If your film is chosen for screening, you must provide a downloadable .mov file so we can place all films in sequence.*
