FASS FORWARD

International Short Dance Films Festival 2021

The Art of making dance shine on camera

Organized under the umbrella of the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur in 2021, FASS Forward is a digital event that aims to promote short dance films by filmmakers from around the world and demonstrate how the camera can be used to creatively showcase dance. 

FASS Forward therefore invites all creators who have mastered the art of making dance shine by using digital technology to submit their works. All styles of dance are accepted.

To submit your film to FASS Forward 2022 follow the link below on the Filmfreeway platform. Good luck!

Public screenings will be live at the Theatre du Marais in Val-Morin on July 21 at 7:30 p.m. and webcast after, on the festivaldesarts.ca site and its associated social networks.

The selected films will be available for viewing online, on this page from July 22. Until then, you can view the 2021 official selection.
