Scholarship Opportunity for Ontario artists and producers at Banff

Quebecor Fund scholarship will bring Ontario producers to Banff

With the financial support of the Quebecor Fund, two Ontario-based producers will once again have the opportunity to pursue professional development opportunities through a 21-day residency at the Banff New Media Institute (BNMI) at The Banff Centre. The new scholarship has been specifically created for Aboriginal and visible minority new media producers.

“The Quebecor Fund is proud to support talented professionals to develop their skills and projects further,” says Derek Luis, Executive Director of Independent Production for SUN TV/Quebecor Media Inc. “We know that putting the creative, technical and human resources of The Banff Centre for the Arts in the hands of storytellers, and the added inspirational setting of Banff, is a winning combination.”

The Quebecor Fund Scholarship, under the banner “The Banff New Media Institute & Quebecor Production Fellowship,” will support two Ontario-based producers at a value of up to $5000 each, providing the participants with world-class support, professional development, mentoring, and career guidance and will allow content creators to gain experience and expertise in diverse areas of production and technology.

Application forms for the BNMI scholarships can be found at www.banffcentre.ca/bnmi/awards. Applications will be adjudicated in March 2009 for residencies to take place between April 2009 and December 2009.

The Banff New Media Institute (BNMI) is an internationally respected art and digital research innovation centre. BNMI programs support the production of new creative work, and the engagement of artists, producers, technologists, and researchers with digital culture.

The Quebecor Fund for Professional Development in Film and Television has been established as part of the SUN TV benefits package. The Fund supports innovative initiatives for experienced professionals from under-represented groups as identified by industry studies (CAB, WIFT), and aims to contribute to creating equity in the Canadian television industry.

BNMI March 2009 Residency

Banff New Media Institute anounces..

BNMI Co-production Residency: Liminal Screen Program dates: February 26, 2009 – March 29, 2009

Application deadline:  November 24, 2008 FOR MORE INFORMATION

Program Description:
The Liminal Screen Co-production Residency at The Banff Centre provides a unique take on video-based residency programs by engaging artists, developers, and researchers in a collective critical inquiry into video as a medium. This residency will focus its inquiry on the transitions between screen and life, as the screen reinforces its central position as an ubiquitous communications portal, data visualization surface and frame on an ever more meditated world.

The process of the residency is open-ended. In the company of peers participants can complete, develop, or experiment with screen-based work. The artists selected for the program will receive technical and programming support as needed. Dedicated studio time is supplemented with a program of group activities including peer critique, thematic screenings and discussion. Residents will also receive studio visits from senior artists, technicians and curators; and access to broader art-based resources of The Banff Centre.

Practitioners from all walks of screen-based practice are encouraged to apply to the program. We are particularly interested in practice that extends its investigation of the screen out into other media or networks (biological, philosophical, social and other systems) and explores the spaces and relationships between screen, mind and hard reality. Participants will receive mentorship and critical feedback on their project from internationally-renowned new media artists and producers Kate Rich, Willy LeMaitre and Nina Czegledy.
