Hi all,

Just a reminder, our deadline for artists in residence applications is
April 1!

More info:

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 2014 and
August 2015. 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.  The funding for this project
is dependent on grants that LIFT applies for after residents are selected.

Submissions must be received no later than Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
