In partnership with Spanish film festival Márgenes and with the support of the Ibermedia Programme, Arché presents RAW: Residencies Arché→Work. RAW is an itinerant programme that includes the participation in Arché, an artistic residency in Lisbon and the participation in MRG//Work, Márgenes’s creative development lab.
RAW is divided into the 2 following categories
- Creation Residencies:
Aimed at emerging directors and producers from Ibero-american countries with an audiovisual project in development. Priority will be given to innovative, coherent and relevant proposals in the contemporary scene.
This programme includes the participation in Arché, an artistic residency in Lisbon and the participation in MRG//Work. Participants will be individually tutored along the five weeks by a tutor invited according to the nature and needs of each project.
- Film Criticism and Research Residencies:
Aimed at film critics and researchers from Ibero-american countries with a project whose object of study is related to the non-fiction cinematic practice, with a focus on Portuguese, Spanish and Latin American cinema.
This programme includes the participation in a Film Criticism and Research Workshop taking place in the scope of Arché (part one) and MRG//Work (part two). Between the two moments of the Workshop, participants attend an artistic residency in Lisbon and will be individually tutored along the five weeks by the Workshop’s tutors.
