Creative Culture Residency Program


Residencies in Creative Culture are four–six week intensive experiences for established filmmakers looking to work on a feature film project. Residents receive housing, a private editing suite, a weekly stipend, and access to the resources available at the Media Arts Lab and JBFC Theater. Residencies are by invitation only, with filmmakers being selected through partnerships with other like-minded organizations. A Creative Culture residency provides two members of a film team with the time and space to do significant work on a feature length project over the course of four–six weeks.

Each residency offers:

  • Four–six weeks of housing at the JBFC Residence for two members of a film team.
  • A weekly stipend provided for two members of a film team.
  • Access to a private editing suite within the residence that is both Premiere and Avid compatible.
  • Access to the production and post production spaces at the Media Arts Lab.
  • Support from JBFC Staff and visiting filmmakers.

  • International Narrative Residency in partnership with the Sundance Institute
