Banff New Media Institute Residency: The Liminal Screen – deadline 22 November 2007

Program dates: March 1 – 28, 2008
Application deadline: November 22, 2007

The Liminal Screen Co-Production Residency at the Banff New Media Institute provides a unique take on video-based residency programs: a community of like-minded artists, developers, and researchers engaging in a collective critical inquiry into video as a medium.

Liminal Screen invites media practitioners to come to The Banff Centre and experiment, interrogate, and reformulate the art, communications, and distribution of the moving image. If your practice deals with the dynamics of the screen, large or small, this program is for you. Individuals and small groups of collaborators are encouraged to apply.

During the course of four weeks, you will have the opportunity to intensively develop your own project with dedicated production support from the Banff New Media Institute’s in-house technicians, editors, and programmers. You will also receive mentorship and critical feedback about your project from internationally renowned new media artists and producers Kate Rich and Willy LeMaitre.

The total cost for this unique residency program is $1,308 (+tax). Nearly $10,000 of additional in-kind support for each project will be provided by Banff New Media Institute staff and the dedicated studio and production facilities of The Banff Centre’s Creative Electronic Environment.
