KRAN Film Residency – Labour – Belgium

In October and November 2013, KRAN Film is organising in Brussels two residencies for cultural operators, with a particular interest in independent, non-commercial video art and art films. During the period of 10 days, each resident will have the opportunity to visit Flemish film and video archives (Argos, VAF, Cinematek, Plus-tot te laat, Cinema Nova, Auguste Orts, 68septante, Kran Film Collective); meet Flemish film makers and film professionals; deliver a lecture, debate or presentation at the RITS School of Arts; and present a screening programme at Beursschouwburg.

In total, two residents will be selected – one for the October and another for the November residency.

The residency offers travel costs to Brussels (return ticket – limited amount), accommodation, per diems, fee and a small budget for screening rights costs.

Labour – Today, when multinationals seek out cheap labour and focus on export regardless of local needs, advanced economies face growing unemployment and developing countries suffer from a lack of adequate market access. It is in this light that we want to envisage the ethical issues regarding labour and economy as they encourage nationalism, migration and poverty.
