Every two years, The Weight of Mountains program takes filmmakers and film artists into new territory; working from a different remote or challenging environment each time to present new unique challenges for artists that push their boundaries and enable new adapted skill sets to emerge. It is a chance for new work development, professional development, new networks and collaborations, and inclusion in the symposia program. It provides the support of a curated and structured residency that enables freedom of artistic process, development of artistic vision, and a focus on developing modern filmmaking.
In 2015, we are heading to the edge of the Sahara Desert in Morocco from 18 September – 13 November. Our residency host accommodation will be Café Tissardmine.
