Film For Artists Residency – Call For Artists

Film For Artists Residency – Call For Artists

Artscape Gibraltar Point announces a call for artists for the Film For Artists Residency. Program dates: 19 – 26 June 2017. Facilitators: Zoë Heyn-Jones, Eva Kolcze, and Terra Jean Long.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 1 May 2017

Price: $750 + HST

The Film For Artists residency, appropriate for absolute beginners and small-gauge film enthusiasts alike, will focus on artisanal film techniques while engaging with the specific geography of the Toronto Islands.

Spend a week on beautiful Hanlan’s Point investigating the compelling materiality of celluloid film. Explore various hand-processing techniques on Super 8mm and 16mm film including the creative and aesthetic potential of film in conjunction with notions of site specificity and psychogeography.

Embrace experimentation, chance, and accident in your process. Think of the filmmaking process as a cycle not separate from the natural, ecological cycles that encompass lives and practices. An alternative to traditional filmmaking instruction, forego the rules in favour of integrating cycles of experimentation, growth, and decay.

The Film for Artists residency will host free public screenings, talks, and tours in order to foster interest in the Toronto Islands as a creative site. Encourage participants and public audiences to consider Toronto’s unique history, landscape, and topography.

Artscape Gibraltar Point is excited to announce that 2017’s residency will explore the Toronto Islands through the lens of plant life, animated by the work of several local artists who use plants in their practices in innovative and dynamic ways. Explore organic film processing, using plants and household materials to develop film, alongside the traditional chemistry used in hand-processing.

Artscape Gibraltar Point will teach:

  • Basic camera theory and how to use the Super 8mm and Bolex 16mm cameras
  • How to hand process black and white 16mm and Super 8mm film
  • Decay techniques using bleach, soil, oil, and salt
  • Painting, drawing, and scratching on film

Film For Artists Residency will include:

  • A bedroom and shared studio spaces
  • Hands-on instruction supplemented by walking tours, talks, film screenings, and engagement with relevant literature
  • Black and white film, darkroom chemistry, and supplies
  • Super 8 and Bolex cameras. Supplies are limited and residents are encouraged to bring your own

Participants are encouraged to share their own films, or films that inspire them, in several informal screenings.
