IKUSMIRA BERRIAK is a programme designed to support audiovisual projects. It is the result of a partnership between Tabakalera International Centre of Contemporary Culture and San Sebastian International Film Festival. From 2018, with a new partner: Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola.
The main goal of IKUSMIRA BERRIAK is to boost audiovisual creation, and the programme focuses on two areas: TRAINING, AUDIOVISUAL PROJECTS DEVELOPMENT RESIDENCY PROGRAMME
IKUSMIRA BERRIAK runs an annual residency programme for the development of projects and development aid for the production of innovative audiovisual work.
The aim of the residency is to provide space, context and time for creative development. Participants will have eight weeks to set up their projects, during which time they will be able to take part in activities that are tailored to their work. A range of workshops will be organised depending on the projects that have been selected and there will be professionals on hand to provide advice.
Residents will develop their projects first for six weeks during which they will attend workshops for film-makers and directors and will be advised by members of the expert committee.
In September, they will return to San Sebastian to complete the last two weeks of their residency, when they will arrive with their project in a more advanced state so that they can share it with the film industry. During this last phase, they will be prepared for the pitching session (presentation of the project) with the aim of holding meetings with the industry professionals present at the Festival.
2021 edition: projects can be registered from the 1st of July until the 31st of August 2020
The projects completed as part of the IKUSMIRA BERRIAK Residency will be included in one of the sections of the SSIFF.
Furthermore, Tabakalera International Centre of Contemporary Culture agrees to screen the projects within a specialized framework.
