Montreal's Main Film is looking for artists interested in developing their experimental filmmaking practices. The Film Factory is a year long program whereby Main Film provides the environment, the tools and training for artists to undertake artistic risks in the development, exploration, and experimentation of their own artistic practice of film as an art form.
Access to equipment and facilities, workshops and individual training will be provided free of cost. Filmstock will also be provided to artists, but recipients must pay for their own processing.
The Film Factory will support: research that contributes to the renewal of formal elements in terms of style, technique or process or contribute the uniqueness of the subject or content of the project, or on the uniqueness of the filmmaker's perspective or process of expression; experimentation with tools and technologies; experimentation with film (hand) craft; productions for which the creative development phase is complete or for productions that further film as an art form.
Program runs from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009.
