FilmForward Vrijplaats Residency
What does the future look like for cinematic and audiovisual stories on all the screens that surround us? Does such a story always start with an idea, an event, a plot, or can it also arise from an image, space, situation, location or music? Does that lead to other ways of storytelling?
FilmForward Vrijplaats Residency offers film and AV professionals free work and thinking space to play and experiment with a research question about the development of cinematic and audiovisual stories that does not fit within the existing development processes. From in-depth research into a topic, to an inside-out design phase; now is the time to make those questions concrete for which you always think there is no time or opportunity.
The FilmForward Vrijplaats Residency is as an open and creative space, a laboratory and an unexplored area where all questions that contribute to the deepening and improvement of your creatorship and the film and AV sector can come into their own. At FilmForward Vrijplaats Residency you can deepen or broaden your knowledge, innovate the creative process and collaborate with professionals from other disciplines to gain new insights. In addition to the time and space to work on your own research together with mentors and experts, there is a joint program around a theme.
Whether you draw storyboards, write scripts, search for locations, compose film music, develop games, play characters or come up with the best frameworks to visualize cinematic stories for all screens, every working professional in film and audiovisual media who has a plan to develop themselves is invited to register for the FilmForward Vrijplaats Residency. You have had your own professional practice for at least five years, and you participated in productions that have had a public screening or presentation.
