Loikka Festival is Looking for Your 3D Films

The Loikka dance film festival (Finland)will take place April 3-6, 2014. Loikka is looking for 3D stereoscopic movies (with some dance in it hopefully) and for 4K dance movies. The call is open until the end of September 2013.

"At Loikka, we firmly believe that the recent renaissance of 3D cinema has huge implications for dance. At its core, dance is an art form based on the presence in space of a moving body, and stereoscopic 3D opens up -literally- a vast new depth of expression in conveying this physical and emotional essence.

To provide a platform to support this ongoing pioneer work, Loikka invites 3D open call submissions encompassing any genre, style or form of dance."

Note: Unfortunately the call looks for 3D 2K or 2D 4K entries, so 3D 4K films seems ineligible...

 2014 - first year with 3D entries

Loikka actually had a call for S3D films last year (and received a number of great pieces that they still have on file) but were unfortunately unable to realize the screening at the 2013 festival due to schedule limitations. But the organization is moving full speed ahead for 2014 now

As an added bonus, 3D stereoscopic and 4K films will be exempt from the festival entry fee.

3D dance films are supposed to be in DCP format with a 1% maximum positive parallax. Content should be sent on hard disk before November 15, 2013.

If you'd like to participate you'll find all the required info at and at the 3D and 4K Dance Films page.
