There is a nice month-long residency opportunity at Visual Studies
Workshop in Rochester, New York (upstate, near Canadian border - home
of Eastman Kodak) . I am not sure if they admit international
artists, but i would guess that they do. this is NOT a luxurious-
type residency a la MacDowell - more like college student living.
VSW is a small MFA program that invites visiting artists to work on
their own projects while being around to occasionally mentor their
very small group of students. you do not get to live in the lap of
luxury, but they pay a small stipend to help out with food and living
expenses, and the facility has lots of great equipment and resources,
including a huge state of the art mac media lab, film/video archive,
16mm to DV telecine machine, cameras and other production equipment,
and a 16mm edit suite. i have been there twice and gotten lots of
work done, including hand-processing of 16mm film in any of their
several darkrooms.

btw, your screening program sounds wonderful - would love to be in
Dublin for it!

enjoy today...
