How to Choose_Cecilia Stenbom

Northern Film & Media in partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art are looking for two talented artists with a background in moving image and/or photography practice to take part in a unique film development programme designed to nurture bold new voices in narrative film.

We are looking for two exceptional artists interested in broadening their practice by developing and producing a short narrative film. Inspired by the recent success of films by directors such as Steve McQueen, Sam Taylor-Wood and Gillian Wearing, The Artist’s Cut will support the selected artists to produce a short narrative film with a budget of £5,000. The scheme will also involve ongoing bespoke support from film industry mentors Kate Leys and Samm Haillay covering story development, scriptwriting and producing. The scheme will also provide a number of film workshops open to artists and filmmakers outside of the scheme covering directing, cinematography, story and distribution. The Artist’s Cut is a unique opportunity for two artists to broaden and develop their practice through a structured and supportive film development and production programme.
