    Preamble

    In order to foster sustainable links between Québec and French film/video makers and to contribute to the development of their expertise and artistic approaches, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (Conseil) has entered into a collaboration agreement with the Centre de création cinématographique Périphérie (CCCP) aimed at establishing a permanent framework for the program of artist exchanges and workshops/residencies created in 2014 between the CCCP and Productions Réalisations Indépendantes de Montréal (PRIM).

    Under this agreement, a Québec film/video maker, author of a documentary film project, accompanied by an editor will undertake a two-month post-production residency at the CCCP, located just outside Paris, while a French film/video maker, author of a documentary film project, will undertake a two-month residency at PRIM in Montréal.

    In accordance with the conditions governing the residency, the film/video maker must:

    • Have completed the filming of the work before departure for residency.
    • Be available during the entire two-month residency in France.

    The CCCP team will provide the film/video maker and editor with artistic, technical and logistical assistance. The editor’s presence is key because the goal is to offer critical guidance and to take the editing process to the next level. Periphérie will encourage meetings with French documentary filmmakers.

    Objectives

    Conseil’s studio-apartment residency program has five objectives:

    • To support and stimulate artists by making available to them a suitable environment and the means to produce and disseminate their works.
    • To foster artistic renewal for artists and writers by giving them access to a new and stimulating cultural environment.
    • To facilitate exchanges of artistic or literary viewpoints and contribute to the formation of durable ties between artists from Québec and abroad.
    • To promote the work and career development of Québec artists internationally.
    • To develop new networks for artistic creation, production and dissemination.

    Residency characteristics

    Discipline concerned

    Documentary film/video

    Target applicants

    This international residency is geared towards artists who have at least two years of artistic experience.

    Length of stay and grant amount

    The two-month residency will take place from October to December (October-November or November-December) 2019.

    The bursary amount is $6,000 for each of the two recipients. This will allow the successful candidates to cover the cost of their personal insurance, as well as travel and living expenses. Accommodation and reception services for the successful Québec candidates will be provided by the CCCP.

    Location

    Founded in 1983 in Seine-Saint-Denis by two filmmakers, the Centre de création cinématographique Périphérie (CCCP) is focused on supporting documentary creation by providing industry-related assistance and technical services (editing). To date, more than 100 films have benefited from the CCCP’s services.

    The CCCP seeks to:
    • Foster film/video creation and production under the auspices of its residency program.
    • Support the distribution process via its promotional initiative (“Rencontres du cinéma documentaire”).
    • Provide film training and encourage heritage appreciation with its programs “L’éducation à l’image” and “Patrimoine et Cinéma”.

    The CCCP works closely with cinemas and maintains close ties with mediatheques, alternative distribution points, schools and universities.

    The Québec creators will be welcomed under the auspices of the CCCP’s residency program (“Cinéastes en résidence”). This original form of creative support enables film/video makers to bring their works to a higher level of quality thanks to attentive artistic guidance during the editing process, multiple screenings of the work in progress and project-related discussions organized by the CCCP team and documentary film professionals.

    Many films that have benefited from the CCCP’s residency program have gone on to garner acclaim at national and international festivals, in addition to being screened on TV and/or in cinemas. Under the CCCP’s program, the resident teams have access to editing facilities and other technical assistance, including three editing rooms equipped with either Final Cut Pro (versions 7 and 10) or Avid, in addition to a screening room equipped with a video projector and a 1.60 m x 1.60 m screen.

  • Eligibility

    General criteria

    Discipline concerned

    Documentary film/video

    To be eligible, candidates working in the film or video fields must:

    • Have taken part (after their artistic training) in at least one independent production that was screened in a peer-recognized location.

    As regards project submissions, the film/video maker must demonstrate that he/she has full control over the content and the execution of his/her work, as well as over all production and distribution agreements. He/she must hold all reproduction and public performance rights for the work or may, by granting a licence, transfer these rights to a producer or an independent distributor.

    Only collective projects presented jointly by a film/video maker and an editor are eligible.

  • Evaluation of applications

    Evaluation criteria

    • Artistic quality of the work
    • Interest and relevance of the project
    • Feasibility of the project

    Process

    All applications are evaluated on their merits, based on the specific objectives and assessment criteria for each of the program components. The selection process takes into account the comparative value of the projects and the available credits.

    The applications are evaluated by a jury whose members must appear in the official roster of resource persons (this roster is approved by CALQ’s Board of Directors).

    For reciprocity-based residency programs and specialized residencies, a jury commissioned by the artistic director of the foreign host organization reviews the applications. Recommendations are submitted to CALQ’s Board of Directors for approval. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed.

    Three months after their mandate has been completed, CALQ makes public the names of the Quebec-based jury members.

    Ethics
    Board members, employees and members of juries and committees of the Conseil are subject to Codes of ethics and professional conduct. All must act in good faith in performing their duties and refrain from taking part in any discussion concerning a grant application that risks creating a conflict of interest. Confidential or privileged information transmitted to them may not be used for personal reasons.

    Decision

    For reciprocity-based residency programs and specialized residencies, CALQ informs the candidates of its response to their applications within a maximum of eight months following the registration deadline.

    An applicant registered for Mon Dossier CALQ will receive an email inviting him to consult his online file to find out the result.

    If the application is successful, along with the announcement letter the applicant will receive a document describing the terms and conditions governing the use of the grant.

    If the application is unsuccessful and the applicant is not registered for Mon Dossier CALQ, the Conseil will communicate its decision in writing.
