The Toronto International Dance Festival is now accepting applications for the 2021 virtual

event. The 9th edition of this festival is focussed on supporting the practice and visibility of

diverse Canadian dance companies, choreographers and dance artists. As the roadmap to

reopening venues is unclear, the festival is putting an open call for new and original works

creatively captured for a virtual presentation.

All artists who work with movement and performance are invited to apply. All genres, forms,

modalities, and varieties of dance, movement, and performance will be considered. This

application is open to creators with experience. Priority will be given to artists of colour, artists

living with disabilities, new generation artists (18-30), new Canadian (immigrant) artists, and

artists from varying geographic locations.

The final presentation format will be a LIVE STREAM of pre-recorded performances at

www.tidfcanada.com. The event is FREE for the public and will also be streamed on other social

media platforms in the following dates:

September 12, 2021 

October 17, 2021 

November 14, 2021 

December 12, 2021 


TIDF recognizes the limitations posed by the COVID-19 restrictions and understands that not all

dance forms are easily adaptable for the camera. Nevertheless, the festival encourages you be

bold and creative in your execution.

Proposed works can be 5 to 20 minutes in length. A jury of previous presenters at TIDF will be

assessing all applications. Successful applicants will receive an honorarium based on their production cost,

number of dancers, quality and professionalism.

Submission with photos and videos - https://tidfcanada.com/submission

Deadline:  July 31, 2021
