artists’ long format film
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for a quality, original idea that will appeal to a large audience and be delivered as a long format film by the full range of creative talent in both film and dance/performance that is available in the UK and beyond. We envisage the commissioned film-maker/s as being willing to explore the boundaries within the chosen film genre and its relationship to the intrinsic qualities of dance and/or performance within film.
We are looking for exciting, feasible proposals that can be made with a development and production budget of between approximately £120K and £400K.
We are looking for projects from artists and film makers who demonstrate the ability to conceive and deliver an extremely strong film, for a highly competitive marketplace.
Presented by Portland Green Cultural Projects, FLAMIN and the Hayward Gallery, ALFF (artists’ long format film) is the working abbreviation for a commission for a film in any genre; creative documentary, drama, artists’ film, cinematic essay or animation, which uses dance/performance as a driver.
The commission is inspired by the recent critical successes of artists’ long format films which have clearly demonstrated the range of contemporary performance styles that can be used effectively in long format films and still attract a mainstream audience.
