Inspired Dance Film Festival is a brand new nationwide dance on film festival being held in Australia, providing a national platform for dancers, choreographers, and filmmakers to explore their creativity in a short film format.

Whilst the focus is on nurturing Australian talent, we also accept International submissions. We have a specially dedicated section of the festival for films made by full-time dance schools, tertiary performing arts schools, and part-time private dance studios.

Attendees of the festival will enjoy a showcase screening of finalists, and the announcement of winners at the inaugural Festival Gala, and Schools Gala.

IDFFA is proudly supported by our ambassadors Todd Mckenney, Kelley Abbey, Aaron Cash, and Stephen Tannos. #idffa2020 - Let Your Dance Be Scene.
