About the residency

The Film Artist in Residence will be engaged for the calendar year 2022 and will be situated in the Department of Film and Screen Media at UCC.

The residency will have two parts:

From January to June 2022, the Film Artist in Residence will be supported to engage with students and staff. This programme of engagement will be designed by the Film Artist in Residence, in consultation with the faculty of the university, and could include focused postgraduate teaching, workshops, mentoring, public events or other activities which bring new and unique energy to the film and screen media programme. Contact time with students and staff during this time will be capped at four hours per week, and the Film Artist in Residence will not be expected to deliver core curriculum.

From July to December, the Film Artist in Residence will be supported to concentrate wholly on their own practice.

The fee to the Film Artist in Residence is €30,000, with the Arts Council contributing €20,000 and the university €10,000. UCC will provide the Film Artist in Residence with a dedicated space, where they can conduct their own creative practice, within the university. UCC will also support the residency administratively. The fee will be paid in two instalments directly by the Arts Council, with a final report to be submitted by the Film Artist in Residence at the conclusion of the residency.
