The International Residency for Animation Films welcomes non-French authors who live abroad– Call for residency
Deadline: 1 November 2018
NEF Animation supports the writing and the creative research in the field of animated films by developing artists’ residency programs that encourage international mobility. The International Residency for Animated Films is hosted and coproduced by the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, one of the most important sites of the Loire valley.
The International Residency for Animation Films allows authors to immerse themselves one month into their work without worrying about material constraints, in a peaceful and inspiring atmosphere, and enable them to meet and exchange with other artists in residency.
The residency is for authors with a project of short, medium or full-length animated film; or with a project of animated film in new or hybrid formats: artistic installation, virtual reality, transmedia, video-mapping, TV series or TV special, animated documentary, etc. The residency applies particularly to projects at the stage of research, pre-development or writing (scenario, graphism, music...).
The residency lasts one month. In 2019, there will be two residency periods:
- from 1-30 April 2019;
- from 1-31 October 2019.
Seleted candidates will be split between one or the other of these two residency periods, according to the accommodation capacity and the wishes formulated at the time of their application. The selected candidates will receive a creation grant of 1200 euros. The travelling expenses are reimbursed on the basis of a price schedule calculated proportionally to the distance between home and the Abbey of Fontevraud.
The application files must be composed of:
- a cover letter (justifying the necessity of a residency period within the project process);
- the author’s availability in April 2019, October 2019, or for both residency periods;
- the presentation of the project that will be developed during the residency at Fontevraud;
- some visual elements and graphic research;
- a curriculum vitae or resume (including the applicant’s home address).
At the end of the residency, no result or restitution is asked. The work stays the property of the author who owns totally its moral and patrimonial rights.
Applications have to be submitted before 1 November 2018.
