ATELIER 105 - Post-production residencies for video CALL FOR PROJECTS - SECOND COMMISSION OF 2019
In October 2014, 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 approximately 10 projects per year. The residency is intended to suit the work-flow of experimental filmmakers, therefore eligibility criteria are deliberately kept open. Short, medium, as well as feature-length films are welcome, on the condition that their shooting is completed and their editing is already advanced, with or without the backing of an independent production company. While the project must fit within the field of experimental cinema, no other criteria (length, nationality of filmmaker, etc.) will be imposed.
On July 11th Bristol Cube will screen the final in the BEEF organised Go go go: Women in Experimental Animation series. There's a line up of great films, plus guest speaker Caroline Ruddell, co editor of 'The Crafty Animator: Handmade Craft-based Animation and Cultural Value', will introduce the screening!
The films within this programme deploy modes of humour, irony, absurdity, the grotesque, mystery, beauty and defiance where qualities of shape, colour, texture, light, materiality and movement and questions of process itself are given priority.
Born in 1944 in Chelsea, Massachusetts, David Brooks entered Columbia University in the early 1960s, where he immersed himself in the study of philosophy and psychology, with a particular interest in psychoanalysis and the work of Freud. During this time Brooks met critic and filmmaker Jonas Mekas and immediately got involved in New York’s burgeoning independent and experimental film scene. By 1962 Mekas had personally enlisted Brooks, then only 18 years old, to be the first Executive Director of the newly established Film-Makers’ Cooperative.
