U.Dance on Screen

U.Dance on Screen

U.Dance on Screen runs alongside the annual youth dance festival, whilst focusing on three core values:

  • To celebrate youth dance on screen
  • To expand opportunities to showcase youth dance beyond staged performances – into digital spaces
  • To encourage wider participation in dance from filmmakers, directors and producers

Each year we put out a call for submissions of dance films either by young filmmakers, or containing young dancers.
An independent panel of film/dance professionals then chooses a selection to be part of the annual youth dance festival.

In previous years, selected films have been screened as part of the festival experience and also shown in the auditorium during the performance showcase.

Submissions are now closed for U.Dance 2019! Stay tuned to see the films selected to be screened at Southbank Centre and BFI Southbank!

Check out the selected films from U.Dance 2017 and 2018.
