Ikusmira berriak (2016)
Ikusmira berriak is a programme designed to support audiovisual projects that show innovation and experimentation in both cinematic language and the production medium.
It is the result of a partnership between Tabakalera International Centre of Contemporary Culture, Donostia Zinemaldia / San Sebastián Film Festival, the DSS2016 Capital of Culture project, Donostia Kultura and the Basque Film Archive Foundation.
The main goal of Ikusmira berriak is to boost audiovisual creation, and the programme focuses on three areas: training, production and exhibition. The programme will therefore facilitate to selected creators, space, context and time for the creative development, aid for start of the production and a plan of support for post-production in the shape of an award.
Four residencies shall be awarded in total, one for each of the following groups: Directors from the 14th International Film Students Meeting (EIECINE), Selected film-makers from Kimuak 2015, Participants in the Lab Competition at the 38th Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and Film-makers from the Basque Autonomous Community.
