Graduate Artist in Residence opportunity now open

14th June 2019

The Tyneside Cinema is calling for submissions for the Graduate Artist Residency 2019-2020.

A unique opportunity for recent Northumbria University graduates to realise a new moving image work, the residency runs from September – December 2019, with a launch and screenings taking place in January 2020.

Designed to support the artistic development of graduates working with moving image from disciplines across fine art, animation, design and film, the Graduate Artist Residency provides emerging artists with an artist’s fee of £1,500, production budget, mentoring, studio space and one year associate membership at The NewBridge Project. It also includes funds towards travel & accommodation (if travelling from outside of the North East) and curatorial, production and technical support to create a new work.

The scheme takes place within the context of the wider Projections programme of commissions, events and practice development activities around artists’ moving image, which aims to reclaim the cinema as a space for artists.

As with the other commissions in Projections programme, the finished film will launch at a special event at Tyneside Cinema, and then screen before feature films. This year, for the first time, the Graduate Artist’s film will also be included in the Projections Commissions touring programme.

Tyneside Cinema is interested in receiving proposals for films of five-six minutes which take into account the specific presentation context of the cinema, and which make use of it to articulate concerns or ideas that mainstream film practice might ignore or be unable to pursue.

Last year’s Graduate Artist in Residence Georgia Bates’ new film Mother of the Mountain looks for the often unseen strength demanded of mothers, reflecting on stories from women of the North East. Through joy and grief, storm and sun, local women’s experiences of motherhood are brought together with the wind-blown heights of the Cheviots to suggest a relationship between lived experience and landscape. The film was launched at a special event at Tyneside Cinema in February, and featured a discussion between Georgia and artist Kathryn Elkin.

The Graduate Artist Residency is delivered as part of a partnership between Tyneside Cinema and Northumbria University and is supported by The NewBridge Project.

The deadline for applications is Monday 1 July. For more information and to apply please click here.
