We are pleased to offer one bursary place to a SUPERLUX member to attend Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, which takes place from 19 – 22 September, 2019.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (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 4-day festival pass, return travel to Berwick and 3 nights’ accommodation.

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 email a short statement (no more than 150 words) to scotland@lux.org.uk explaining why you are interested in attending the festival and how this will benefit your current research. SUPERLUX members must be based in Scotland in order to be eligible.
