The Pop Up Film Residency is proud & excited to announce a new initiative for 2021, in cooperation with Friss Hús Budapest International Short Film Festival, Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival, and New Horizons International Film Festival.

The Pop Up Film Residency Visegrad will be a Residency program open to filmmakers from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia. The first edition will offer a creative environment in Bratislava, where three residents will work on their feature film projects with international mentors.

At the same time, the residents will also be able to exchange with the fellow filmmakers from Visegrad Countries and the Slovak filmmaking community at large.

The participating projects from the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland are selected in cooperation with our partners from national projects presented at Budapest Debut Film Forum 2020, New Horizons Studio+ 2020, and the Emerging Producers.

The residencies will take place in Bratislava from 10 – 31 May 2021.

We would like to invite the Slovak filmmakers to apply with their projects in development until 10 January 2021.


The Pop Up Film Residency Visegrad is supported by the Visegrad Fund.
