We open this call in a disturbed global environment by anti-COVID-19 strategies, we trust we’ll be able to celebrate the festival in October, since we have support by Centro de Cultura Digital and Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes in Mexico City. Movimiento en Movimiento is a live-face-to-face festival and a virtual festival at the same time, we will make the necessary adjustments for this edition. Thus, we continue with our battle cry despite the present adverse condition: Creating dependencies and addictions to screendance. We also suggest stay safe and let art go on at the same time.

Movimiento en Movimiento is interested in audiovisual productions that might be considered as screendance, dance film or videodance, with reflections in its narrative, meanings, body and audiovisual media, and related with PHILOSOPHY, SOCIETY and LITERATURE. These productions might include or exclude the human body.
