Call for Applications
Deadline: Wednesday 16 December 2020
We are delighted to announce our continued involvement in the Experimental Film and Moving Image Residency in partnership with Cove Park and Alchemy Film & Arts.
In 2021 Cove Park, in association with LUX Scotland and Alchemy Film & Arts, will award a minimum of two funded Experimental Film and Moving Image Residencies of up to four weeks each during the summer months. This opportunity is open to Scotland-based filmmakers and artists, who have been working and exhibiting professionally for at least three years and are no longer in full-time education. The summer residencies will take place between May and September 2021.
Founded in 1999 by Peter and Eileen Jacobs, Cove Park offers Funded and Independently Funded residencies across all art forms for national and international artists, collaborative groups and organisations. Cove Park is located on an outstanding 50-acre site overlooking Loch Long on Scotland’s west coast.
Cove Park’s summer residency programme provides artists with the time and support required to focus exclusively upon their own practice. The emphasis is upon research, experimentation and the development of new work. The filmmakers/artists will be part of a changing group of national and international residents specialising in a wide variety of art forms (please see Cove Park’s website for information on those who have previously been awarded residencies at Cove Park). The artists are invited to take part in a series of informal studio presentations, talks, screenings and dinners organised by Cove Park. LUX Scotland is available to work with resident artists to support the development of public outcomes of research (if appropriate). Alchemy Film & Arts will extend an invitation to participants to attend the 2021 festival/programme and to submit work for consideration at future festivals and events.
These residencies are funded and each artist participating in this programme will receive a fee of £425 per week.
