The Slovak Pop Up is organized within a framework of the Pop Up Film Residency Bratislava, a residency and mentorship program based in Bratislava. We offer the participants a unique opportunity to share experiences with residents from around the world and to consult their projects with internationally acclaimed film industry experts.
In the span of six months, six selected Slovak participants can benefit from the presence of the Pop Up Film Residents and their mentors.
There is no participation fee for the program.
WHO CAN APPLY?
The Slovak Pop Up is open for Slovak film projects (fiction, documentary & animation) in any stage of development.
The program is open for filmmakers preparing their first feature as well as more experienced filmmakers.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Pop Up Film Residency Bratislava hosts international filmmakers selected in partnership with renowned industry programs & co-production forums who spend 3 weeks in Bratislava, developing their projects. The idea is to find a Slovak partner – project which can profit from a shared mentor and also exchange ideas with the resident.
It’s a year-round project with an individual approach – only one international project at a time. Pop Up Film Residency doesn’t work on preset schedules and preselected mentors. Both are set to fit the project and the resident.
