Calling on the experienced women filmmakers!!

With the support of the Council of Europe’s Eurimages Fund, Pop Up Film Residency launches a very special residency only for you!!

Looking at the landscapes of the film industry, we could not overlook the scarcity of support for filmmakers that are preparing their 3rd or later film*. This is more urgent when we speak of women.
This is where we want to stand up.

Last year, we designed this special POP UP FILM RESIDENCY to address this important issue.

This year, it ran its pilot residency, in which writer-director Jenni Toivoniemi took part with her project “EVE’S CALL.” Along the way, she was mentored by writer-director Agnieszka Smoczyńska and producer Juraj Krasnohorský.

 

The 2022/2023 edition will once again accommodate one project and its author.

We invite you to apply.

WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE RESIDENCY TAKE PLACE?
We can accommodate the exact dates of your residency as long as they fit within October 2022 and March 2023. We are happy to welcome you to one of the Pop Up hosting cities.
Your travel fare and accommodation are covered by the program.

WHO WILL BE MY MENTOR?
The mentor is always selected for a particular project. You can check our previous mentors here.
