Referring to the English terms “movie”, “move”, “moving”, which echo film, movement and emotion in French, MOV’IN Cannes is a competition around short films that celebrates dance brought to the image.
This highlight is jointly piloted by Didier Deschamps and Eric Oberdorff, choreographer and director who is a stakeholder in its conception and implementation.
To take part in this competition, a call for dance films open from December 1, 2022 to April 30, 2023 allows the entry of works where aesthetics, writing form and content are absolutely free.
The only constraint is to respect a duration of less than 10 minutes. Works pre-selected on the one hand, by the Centre national de la danse and partner international film festivals (Tel Aviv, Lisbon, San Francisco, Reykjavik, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Limerick – Ireland), and on the other, by viewing panels made up of students from BTS audiovisuel Cannes Carnot and Université Côte d’Azur courses (ESRA, Villa Arson, PNSD Rosella Hightower, Licence Arts du Spectacle), will be screened in public before a jury, made up of dance and film industry professionals, chaired by Mathilda May.
Different prizes will be awarded (Grand Prix, Prix du Ministère de la Culture, Prix des étudiants, Prix du public) and will thus highlight international short film production, its topicality and new creations. The winning films will be broadcast on the platform numeridanse.tv. The Ministère de la Culture – Direction générale de la création artistique (DGCA) – Délégation à la danse will reward its prize witha creation grant and the Grand Prix will offer a residency at Cannes Bastide Rouge, a cluster dedicated to the creative economy and image professions, within the Georges Méliès Campus in Cannes.
