Submissions have opened for a new dance film festival, called Inspired Dance Film Fest Australia, which is aimed at providing a platform for dancers, choreographers and filmmakers to explore their creativity on film.

The co-founders are Ian Knowles and Rohan Seinor, both highly seasoned professional dancers who boast extensive careers both nationally and internationally. They believe there has been a missed opportunity in Australia to celebrate dance on film. Organising this festival is a way to give back to the industry they love.

The inaugural Festival will be held at Hoyts Cinema Paris, Entertainment Quarter, Sydney, November 8, 2020. Tickets for the Festival will go on sale later in the year.

The Festival is also supported by ambassadors Todd McKenney, Kelley Abbey, Aaron Cash, and Stephen Tannos.

Submissions opened on February 29, with an early bird deadline March 15, regular deadline August 31 and an extended deadline on September 20.
