Artist residencies

 

LIFT offers a select number of international residencies each year. These are 4–6 week individual production residencies for artists from outside Canada. LIFT's international residency program focuses on the production of film-based works with equipment and facilities to which the artist would not have access in their local region. Artists are expected to be at an established point in their practice (although not necessarily working predominantly with film). Applicants must also consider what they would bring to the Toronto community in terms of community collaboration, teaching, artist talks and/or presentation activities – these engagements are a critical part of each residency offered by LIFT.

 

In 2017, LIFT launched the annual ROBERTO ARIGANELLO NATIONAL ARTIST RESIDENCY. This residency seeks applications from Canadian citizens and permanent residents living outside of the Greater Toronto Area to apply for a 4–6 week individual production residency. Building on our successful International Artist-in-Residence program and our local Members’ Production Grants, the National Residency is a way to reach out to Canadian artists who want to access the wealth of resources LIFT has available. It honours the legacy of Roberto Ariganello, the late LIFT Executive Director who did much to encourage artists to make films, and often reached out to redistribute excess film equipment across the country.
