Hi all,

Reminder that there's 10 days left to apply for the Artist Residency at
LIFT in Toronto. Please pass on to anyone you think is interested.
Info below and at:


The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is seeking
applications from international (non-Canadian) artists for 4–6 week
individual production residencies to take place between September 2013 and
August 2014. LIFT is an artist-run production and educational media arts
organization dedicated to celebrating excellence in the moving image. We
support a wide range of production formats including Regular 8mm, Super
8mm, 16mm, Super 16mm, 35mm and HD; film and digital editing; optical
printers; contact printers; animation stands; a darkroom and more. Toronto
also offers a range of lab facilities, a large pool of experienced
technicians and talent, a vibrant film community and a dynamic arts

LIFT's residency program focuses on the production of film-based works
with equipment and facilities to which the artist would not have access in
their local region. Artists are expected to be at an established point in
their practice (although not necessarily working predominantly with film).
Applicants must also consider what they would bring to Toronto in terms of
community collaboration, teaching, artist talks and/or presentation
activities—these engagements are a critical part of each residency offered
by LIFT.

The maximum cash funding for projects is $3,000 (CAD) for travel,
accommodation and per diems. Equipment and facilities will be provided by
LIFT to a maximum of $3,000 (CAD), LIFT equipment rates can be found at
www.lift.ca. The artist is responsible for the costs of all film stock,
chemicals, lab fees and other expendables.

Interested artists should submit proposals, including:
·       Proposal/Artist statement (including how they intend to engage the
local community during their stay and how LIFT can help create access to
equipment or facilities not available at their home location)
·       Curriculum vitae
·       Proposed budget (including funding sources for materials)
·       Visual support material of past work (do not send originals,
documentation will not be returned)

Submissions must be received no later than Monday, April 1, 2013.

Proposals are submitted on the understanding that the project’s execution
is contingent on funding yet to be secured.
