Welcome to

INSPIRED Dance Film Fest Australia!

IDFFA is an international dance on film festival with a core focus on nurturing the dance on film industry in Australia. Created to provide choreographers, dancers, and filmmakers from all around the world, a vehicle to present dance on film, generate a hub that connects both industries and brings a new audience of dance lovers to the cinema. 

Our central values are education, opportunity, innovation, connection, inspiration, and inclusivity, encouraging artists’ freedom of imagination to think outside the box, to invent new and original works that captivate audiences.

Participants of the festival will showcase their chosen genre of dance via a short film. With a selection of award categories, the festival goal is diversity in every aspect. Attendees of the festival will enjoy a showcase screening of finalists and announcement of winners at the festival and gala on Sunday the 8th of November 2020 at Hoyts Cinema Paris, Entertainment Quarter, Sydney. 

We encourage dancers, choreographers, and filmmakers from all corners of the world to show up and take an active part in the festival, all in the spirit of art, creativity, and celebration of dance on film.

“Here at Inspired Dance Film Fest Australia, we want to make a space for the dance community to celebrate their creative choreography through film.  We are also working to foster a positive rapport with other international dance festivals to facilitate more exciting avenues of opportunity for dance expression in Australia.”

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we work. We pay our deepest respects to Elders past, present & emerging.
