The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is seeking
applications for its residency program. LIFT is an artist-run production and
educational media arts organization dedicated to celebrating excellence in
the moving image.
LIFT's 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).
International (non-Canadian) artists.

community during their stay

at their home location)
