  • LIFT - International Artist Residencies 2014/2015

    By on

    The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is seeking applications from international (non-Canadian) artists for 4–6 week individual production residencies to take place between September 2014 and August 2015. LIFT is an artist-run production and educational media arts organization dedicated to celebrating excellence in the moving image. We support a wide range of production formats including Regular 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm, Super 16mm, 35mm and HD; film and digital editing; optical printers; contact printers; animation stands; a darkroom and more. Toronto also offers a range of lab facilities, a large pool of experienced technicians and talent, a vibrant film community and a dynamic arts environment.

    LIFT's residency program focuses on the production of film-based works with equipment and facilities to which the artist would not have access in their local region. Artists are expected to be at an established point in their practice (although not necessarily working predominantly with film). Applicants must also consider what they would bring to Toronto in terms of community collaboration, teaching, artist talks and/or presentation activities—these engagements are a critical part of each residency offered by LIFT.

    This second year of ARKIPEL International Documentary & Experimental Film Festival will have a special theme, Electoral Risk, which is trying to see how cinematic reading of democracy, activism, politics, and civil power today. Changes in geo-economic and global geo-political issue have changed so much our view of everyday reality, which also have shifted the order of social life.

    Various socio-political events that show tendency of ‘civilian power’ occurred lately in the Middle Eastern countries, Asia, Europe, and Latin America, have questioned the meaning of democracy. The concept of democracy is adopted from the ‘West’, which means, the power is in the hands of people to determine all matters relating to the direction of their lives, in practice it is not going well. On the other hand, the development of technology, especially in media and information technology—cinema has become one of its parts, it has shown how the civil power ‘criticize’ state policies.
