Big Dance, Channel 4 and the British Council are delighted to announce a new programme Big Dance Shorts India as part of the UK/India season 2017. This exciting and high-profile platform for UK and Indian artists is produced by Big Dance, Channel 4, the British Council and is supported by People Dancing and the Mayor of London.  

Four outstanding 3 minute dance-film ideas will be commissioned for Channel 4’s Random Acts strand as part of the UK/IN Year of Culture, 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. This is a new exciting and high-profile platform that seeks out UK and Indian collaborations between filmmakers and choreographers.

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 online and social media platforms by Big Dance, the British Council, People Dancing and the Greater London Authority.

The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, 3 May, 2017 at 17:00
