The Olga Rabinovich Institute is a charity supporting the Brazilian audiovisual sector. In 2019 the Institute launched the “Projeto Paradiso”, a program that intends to foster the development of Brazilian films, with an emphasis on stories that engage with diverse audiences. The Pop Up Film Residency & the Olga Rabinovich Institute jointly organise the “Pop Up Film Residency Paradiso” in that framework.
The “Pop Up Film Residency Paradiso” offers a 3-week residency for an experienced Brazilian filmmaker to work on the development of his/her feature film project. Beatriz Seigner took part in the first edition, which took place in Bratislava in September 2019. The second edition will take place in Vilnius (Lithuania), with producer Marija Razgute (M-Films) as host.
