Dear all,   

Following the success of the 8th Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, we’re delighted to be announcing our first opportunity for filmmakers and moving image artists to be a part of the next edition in September 2013.

With our theme for next year looking at Berwick’s Nordic roots, and looking particularly to Northern European artists, I wonder if this Berwick Visual Arts residency opportunity might be of interest to your networks in Norway?  

The residency offers the opportunity for a moving image artist to spend up to 6 months in Berwick-upon-Tweed, and to be part of the September 2013 Festival, with a wealth of unique heritage locations available to the artist to site their resulting work.

Each year the Festival’s programme responds to a different theme, and next year we seek to explore the region’s historical, industrial and cultural links with Northern Europe through film and moving image art. Straddling the English-Scottish Border, the 2013 Festival will look North by Northeast, through Scotland, across to Nordic and Scandinavian countries, and over the North Sea that connects us.

The funding available for the Berwick Visual Arts residency is up to £12,000 (approx 15,000euros), with additional exhibition costs covered by the Festival.

Thanks in advance for circulating this opportunity – and I will be in touch to announce the dates and the call for submissions for the 2013 edition of the Festival shortly.

All best wishes,

Melanie
