Go to the thematic Forum on «More-than-Human Perspective»

A pivoting door is at the heart of Filmexplorer’s studio in Berlin (Wedding). The two revolving fronts express the leading keywords for the multi-partners residency programmes:

 

INTERDISCIPLINARITY: the current focus is on “film and space”  

NETWORKING: to take advantage of Berlin as international crossroad  

FEEDBACK: discursive, artistic and performative projects will find an occasion of exchange and confrontation

 

The projects

Cornerstone of each residency programme is the personal project of the resident. The minimum 1-month stay in Berlin is mainly meant as a moment of networking and meeting in order to upgrade and develop the resident’s project.

There is no special restriction about the theme of the project but the current interdisciplinary focus on “Film and Space”.

 

Filmexplorer provides…

a recently renovated studio in the culturally booming area of Wedding;
a personalised support for networking in art and cinema worlds in Berlin;
a dedicated page on Filmexplorer’s website;
help in organising one meeting event during the stay;
support in the resident’s search for funding.

 

The Residency Programmes are curated by Giuseppe Di Salvatore and Ruth Baettig.
