    The festival’s competition is open for fiction short dance films, documentaries and animations from around the world. BIDFF will also screen feature films and long documentaries out of competition. This year's theme of the Bucharest International Dance Film Festival is [re] tracing.

    Film creators from Romania, Moldavia, Ukraine, Serbia, Bulgaria and Hungary are invited to apply for a brand new dance film lab, focused on the development of a dramaturgical structure and a clear artistic approach for future dance films. The lab will help dance filmmakers to further improve their initial idea in workshop sessions with choreographer and filmmaker Helena Jonsdottir and dance dramaturge and writer Guy Cools, and focus groups coordinated by film producer Anamaria Antoci and film consultant Alex Trăilă.
