Deadline: Tuesday 22 August, 10am

We are pleased to offer one bursary place to a SUPERLUX member to attend Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF), which takes place from 20 – 24 September 2017.

BFMAF is one of the UK’s leading festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image. Based in England’s most northerly town, BFMAF is a dynamic forum where fresh artistic voices develop and audiences hungry for complex and challenging art are nurtured. Increasingly recognised for its innovative programme and critical engagement, BFMAF presents artists’ and filmmakers’ work in the cinema as well as expanded formats of exhibition and performance.

The bursary will cover a 5‑day festival pass, return travel to Berwick and 5 nights’ shared accommodation at Berwick YHA (dormitory with kitchen and café facilities, shared with others attending the festival).

Following the festival, bursary recipients are required to produce a short response reflecting on their experience to be published on the SUPERLUX website.

To apply for this bursary opportunity, please complete the form on the SUPERLUX website explaining why you are interested in attending the festival and how this will benefit your current research and practice in 150 words or less. SUPERLUX members must be based in Scotland in order to be eligible.

The deadline for applications is 10am on Tuesday 22 August. We will inform the successful bursary holder by 6pm on Thursday 24 August.

With thanks to Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival for their bursary support.
