How to Apply

There are two options to become a Pop Up Film Resident: either to benefit from a Residency Program provided by one of our creative partners or to request a Residency On Demand (for experienced filmmakers only).

Residency Program

 

The Pop Up Film Residency decided not to launch its own calls for applications, but to work in cooperation with leading film initiatives (festivals, industry events, trainings, etc.), in order to identify most promising film projects and to complement existing talents supporting schemes.

Pop Up Film Residents are chosen amongst projects that were previously selected by creative partners. Those partners constitute a portfolio that covers a wide scope of filmic traditions and approaches, and spread out in different networks and regions of the world. Therefore, the Pop Up Film Residency aims at welcoming diverse talents in its several residency programs.

 

 

 

 

For 2019, these creative partners are:

BRLAB

CANNES CRITICS’ WEEK -> Next Step Programme

CANNES FILM FESTIVAL -> Short Film Corner’s Focus CoPro’ initiative

CEE ANIMATION FORUM

DOHA FILM INSTITUTE -> Hezayah Screenwriting Lab

EAVE -> Producers Workshop

INSTITUTO OLGA RABINOVICH -> Projeto Paradiso

WARSAW KIDS FILM FORUM

– WHEN EAST MEETS WEST Co-Production Forum

Check out its initiatives, and through them, you may become a Pop Up Film Resident!

More creative partners are to join in near future.

 

 

Residency On Demand

 

Observing the lack of talent supporting schemes for experienced filmmakers, the Pop Up Film Residency decided to propose Residencies On Demand.

These Residencies are only open to filmmakers with an already established body of work (at least two features written and/or directed, or similar filmography), and that usually cannot benefit from new talents supporting schemes.

Filmmakers interested in such Residencies On Demand can directly contact us.

In 2019, the first Residency on Demand benefited filmmaker Koen Mortier, and more will be announced soon.
