When filming for an application is it better to use live performances (where the stage space might be limited) or to hire a space in my own time?

As long as you follow the directions in the application to the letter, any film of your performance should work. And it's worth noting that usually those who are booking large festivals and contests are hoping to present the most fully developed numbers by performers, so if it's better for you to show it fully developed in a studio than a live performance from when you were first working on it, and the instructions in the application permit it, it's worth considering which presents the act the most as you really want it to be.
If you're in New York, Angie Pontani will be presenting a class on how to apply for festivals and events:
