SITE & CYCLE

Explore, Film, Develop.

Description of residency program
Over the past four years, the Toronto-based F4A (Film For Artists) collective has been facilitating the Site + Cycleproject, a residency that has combined 16mm and Super 8 filmmaking instruction with teachings about site specificity at Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands.
In February 2018, Anima Casa Rural will expand the project’s reach into Mexico, when the F4A collective’s members will participate in a filmmaking residency with members of Mexico City’s Laboratorio de Cine Experimental (LEC). Members of both filmmaking collectives will explore the San Isidro Mazatepec region of Jalisco together, making films that explore the region’s histories, topographies, and vegetation, and sharing knowledge of organic plant-based film processes.
As a flourishing artist residency centre that is committed to permaculture and sustainable living, Anima Casa Rural is the ideal location to host the Site + Cycle project, with its focus on plant-based non-toxic filmmaking practices that utilize local plants in the development of the films shot onsite.
