  Call for projects – Artist-in-residence programme at Folimage studio 

Appeal for projects for a 2019 ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE programme for young people organised by Folimage animation studio. Registration is open until 5th May.

In order to promote films for youngsters, Folimage studio assists filmmakers in the creation of an animated film for 5-7-year-olds.
Far from being a new programme, it has given the chance to more than 25 novice directors from around the world to create their first professional short film by participating in the artist-in-residence programme.
Since 2014, four short films have been produced as part of the ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE programme for young people; three of these have a total of 35 awards and more than 268 official festival selections.
Could you be next?

The artist-in-residence programme takes place in several stages:

  • Registration and submission of applications before 5th May 2018.
  • Examination of all projects received and nomination of the winner will be made by the selection panel in June 2018.
  • The winner will be welcomed to Fontevraud Abbey, an unrivalled place in Europe for a writing residency, to carry out in-depth work on the plan of your creation in October 2018.
  • The winner, benefitting from the expertise and experiences from a support team and necessary technical materials, will move in to Folimage studio (in Valence) in January 2019 until December 2019, when the film will be completed.

Don’t wait any longer to try your luck! Download the registration form.
