Creative Scotland and the British School at Rome invite applications for a Creative Futures fellowship in creative documentary film at the British School at Rome, January to March 2013.
Creative Scotland’s ‘Creative Futures’ programme aims to promote the professional development, vision, connectivity and ambitions of Scotland’s creative practitioners and organisations. As part of this programme, a new creative documentary film fellowship, sponsored by Creative Scotland and the British School at Rome (BSR), is offered at the BSR.
A Document fellowship in (still) documentary photography was established at the British School at Rome for the first time in 2012. Documentary photographer Angela Catlin undertook this and her experiences in Rome can be seen here. This new fellowship in creative documentary film is offered to complement the still photography fellowship, which is offered again for 2013.
THE BRITISH SCHOOL AT ROME
The British School at Rome is an interdisciplinary research centre for the humanities, visual art and architecture. There are 7 residential studios for artists and 21 study-bedrooms for other scholars, as well as a specialist reference library. The BSR, one of the overseas institutions sponsored by the British Academy, seeks to encourage informed and innovative responses to the cultural heritage of Rome and Italy, and attracts scholars and artists from throughout the Commonwealth.
Because of the extraordinary history of the city, and its influence on European culture, many other nations also support academies in Rome, including France, Germany, Switzerland and the USA, each with their own distinctive mission.
The Creative Scotland Document24 fellowship will run from January to March 2013 at the BSR, providing:
