News: New partners, new dance films

Friday 23 March 2007

Following on the success of previous creative dance collaborations (recently The Rough Guide to Choreography, 4Dance) Arts Council England and Channel 4 have announced an expansion of their partnership to include two new collaborators – Australia Council for the Arts and ABC Television. This will bring the opportunity to commission new British and Australian dance films – and the purchase of existing dance films to be broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK and ABC television in Australia. MJW Productions – (who produced the Rough Guide to Choreography with Ballet Boyz Michael Nunn and William Trevitt) will produce ABC of Dance 4 Film in the UK – and they are already looking for new commissions.

The first deadline for submissions is 30 April 2007. Up to seven new dance films with budgets ranging from £2000 – £14,000 will be commissioned. Collaborations between Australian and British artists are particularly welcomed.
