Big Dance Shorts India

Big Dance, Channel 4 and the British Council are delighted to announce a new programme Big Dance Shorts India as part of UK/India 2017, led by the British Council and the Indian High Commission.

This exciting and high-profile platform for UK and Indian filmmakers and choreographers is commissioned by Big Dance, Channel 4, the British Council and is supported by People Dancing and the Mayor of London.

Four outstanding 3-4 minute dance-film ideas will be commissioned for Channel 4’s Random Acts strand as part of UK/IN which is led by the British Council. Each film will be inspired by dance and have at its heart an element of collaboration between the UK and India.

The selected films will be shown online and may be chosen to be broadcast as part of Channel 4’s Random Acts strand. The films will also be shown via social media platforms by Big Dance, the British Council, People Dancing and the Greater London Authority.

The deadline for proposals is WEDNESDAY 3 MAY at 17:00.

Following a first networking event in London, a second event for choreographers and film makers to meet, network and find out more about the programme will take place on Wednesday 19 April at MAC, Birmingham. Find out more here.
