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 ten to fifteen projects per year. The residency is intended to suit the work-flow of experimental filmmakers, and so eligibility criteria are deliberately kept open. Short-, medium, as well as feature-length films are welcome, at the shooting or the editing stage of the project, and 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.
