The ever-anticipated Jazz Dance Film Fest returns for its fourth year!
Joon Chang and The Careless Lovers blew us away in 2011 with their winning submission, "Black Coffee" -- will you be next to bask in glory?
A celebration of jazz culture, Jazz Dance Film Fest (formerly known as the Swing/Jazz Dance Music Video Contest) is a unique and creative outlet for musicians and dancers of all ages and experiences to combine their passions for music and dancing with a touch of their own blend of flavor-sauce. The result is an original video of your own mastermind, submitted to our judges by Thursday, August 2, 2012, and screened for our Seattle Lindy Exchange audience on Saturday, August 11, 2012.
Q: Who can create a video?
A: Anyone can create a video. Yes, even you. Yeah, you. (No really, we're lookin' at you.) It's easy-peezy. Spend a caffeinated afternoon with your fellow jazz lovers and lindy friends (and/or soon-to-be friends), turn on a camera, and let the creative juices flow.
Q: What music should I use?
A: Don't have jazz musicians as beer buddies? We got your back. We've provided a pre-approved list of songs that are sure to keep your criminal record free of copyright infringement.
Q: What should be in my video?
A: There is virtually no limit to video submissions. Show everyone that your performance troupe knows the true definition of "shake it and break it," promote your band with your original version of a jazz tune, get your city/scene involved and show us how hard you swing, and/or simply tell a story and create memories with your friends.
Check out our previous years' submissions for inspiration!
Q: What do I get out of this?
A: Alright, if all that fun with your friends isn't enough to convince, we'll throw in a $700 1st place cash prize, with a $100 2nd place cash prize to sweeten the pot. You do not have to be present to win (though we would love to have you), so trans- continental submissions: start your engines!
Yup, we're just that persuasive.
