super thanks lauren and sara!
along the lines of programming atlantic canadian filmmakers work, i'd
also like to see filmmakers from other areas come to make and/or
screen work here too...
i hope to post some official info and a call soon for filmmakers
interested in making work out here.... but some of the details still
need to be ironed out... in the meantime... to whet your whistle and
get you thinking.... we have a great artist in residence program (more
general.... not specifically for filmmakers, but open to them) and
the deadline is october 1....
we just launched a brand new film space last night! the opening was
great (i'm still recovering).
sackville is a small town of 5000 people with only one traffic
light.... and lots of ducks.... in the middle of the tantramar
marshlands..... but we now have a nice sized media arts centre with
steenbeck, jk optical printer, homemade animation stand, light tables,
handwinders, darkroom, green screen, HD gear, computers, projectors
(of various sorts)... and a few apartments for artists in residence.
it's a really sweet space for artists to come and make work. despite
the small size, this town has a really vibrant arts communty.
we have an annual call for artists in residence (1 month
residencies)... it's a general residence that's open to artists in
both visual and media arts... but with now with our new film equipment
(primarily 16mm) it would be great to have some filmmakers come out
here to make work.
