The Pop Up Film Residency intends to bring the best of what artistic residencies offer, together with a truly individualized mentorship program. Created by filmmakers for filmmakers, each residency is unique, specific to the needs of the project, and only hosts one resident at a time.

The first venue, Bratislava in Slovakia, is thought of as a hub, however the Pop Up Film Residency is a concept that can hatch out anywhere. After a pilot edition in 2018, a dozen of residency programs in 2019, the Pop Up Film Residency network has now expanded around the Mediterranean, Nordic & Baltic seas, with hosts in 9 different countries.

The Pop Up Film Residency is organized mostly in collaboration with various prestigious film initiatives. Experienced filmmakers, with two feature film credits at least, can ask for a Residency On Demand.
