Understanding Artist Residencies & Retreats for Filmmakers
This panel delves deep into the world of artist residencies, retreats, and labs, the differences and similarities, and particularly what screenwriters/filmmakers can take away from these experiences. Our discussion will cover ways to break out of your creative slump by finding a cohort of inspiring peers, explain the importance of being exposed to other art forms, and examine how a different creative process can enlighten narrow-minded views of our profit-driven industry. We will also provide practical tips about applying to these programs, financial solutions, and approaches to mental health.
