Frame Dance Productions

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Frame Dance has two open calls for Filmmakers and Composers.

1. Frame Dance is committed to providing a platform for emerging and established filmmakers to share their work with the world, inspiring creativity and innovation. 

Frame Dance Film Festival is open to films of 8 minutes or less that explore the relationship of the moving body and the camera. Films will be selected based on the quality of the image, sound, the choreography of the body as well as the choreography of the camera. The Frame Dance Film Festival is in partnership with Aurora Picture Show and Houston Ballet and this year's festival will be held September 21-23, 2018.


2. Frame Dance is committed to 100% new music. 

Frame Dance is committed to using new, original music in all its productions. Frame Dance has held an annual competition since 2011 to  select pieces of music for its upcoming season. The competition offers  outstanding, emerging composers a forum for their recognition as well as  an opportunity to collaborate with the dance performance company. The  winning composer’s music – a completed, unpublished piece, becomes the  basis of a new original work at Frame Dance – film and/or live  performance. This successful competition has attracted exciting new  composers from the U.S. and across the world to collaborate with Frame Dance. Houstonians are exposed to the work of new composers who, in  turn, have their music fully produced and choreographed. Some of these  collaborations have become particularly fruitful and have spurred even  more work with Frame Dance.
