If you fancy yourself as the next Minghella or Spielberg, jot this date in your diary, as November 20th is the entry deadline for this year’s X-Dance Film Festival!
Last year was a breakthrough year for X-Dance, with a record number of entries from some outstanding filmmakers, plus a beautiful big theater and record attendance for the screenings in Salt Lake City. Some of the top films used X-Dance to launch their movies, with the Bra Boys having their North American premiere playing to a standing-room-only record crowd! Travis Pastranna, Tony Hawk, Tara Dakides, and all the Bra Boys (all the way from Australia), were in attendance to enjoy the premier event in the world of action sports filmmaking.
Last year, over 200 entries from all over the world were narrowed down to 40 films. The film ‘199 Lives’ (Dir. Greg Godfrey, Studio 411 Productions) took top prize of ‘Best Film’, with its incredible action, story, and cinematography. ‘Bra Boys’ won ‘Best Documentary’, John Decesare won ‘Best Director’ for ‘The Windsurfing Movie’, and the ‘Emerging Filmmaker Award’ went to Britton Cailloutte for ‘Sliding Liberia’
Attention from Hollywood soon followed, with two films picked up for theatrical distribution and several of the other filmmakers were signed on for major distribution. This is just the start for the filmmakers of X-Dance.
To be a part of this year’s festivals, all submissions must be made via the X-Dance website. Enter your film now!
