  • Atelier 105 - Post-production residency for video - First commission 2016

    By on

    In January 2015, Light Cone initiated artist residencies dedicated to video-based post-production of films that fall within the realm of experimental cinema, with the objective of supporting 10 to 15 projects per year. Atelier 105 is intended for short-, medium- or feature-length projects, which have completed shooting or are still in the production phase, and which are made with or without the backing of an independent production company. While the project must fall within the field of experimental cinema, no other criteria (format, theme, processing, length, nationality of filmmaker, etc) will be imposed.
