SPECTRAL BAL Summer School

Baltic Analog Lab  announces an open call for a week-long Summer school and a film-labs meeting for filmmakers and artists working with extended cinematic art. The school will happen in Rucka artist residency and a manor house in Cēsis, Latvia from August 8-14, 2022 hosting 45 guests from all around Europe. 

The aim of this summer school is to unite professionals as well as beginners working in the field of extended cinematic art. BAL provides a space for research, creation, presentation as well as networking which is crucial for those working in artist-run film labs. Together with members of the SPECTRAL project, BAL will organise  workshops and lectures focusing on the creation of extended cinematic works.

The results will be presented in the natural environment of Cesis municipality – Gauja National Park and Cesis city by the end of the week. 

They invite artists and filmmakers to apply for the school by July 8, 2022 by submitting their application here. Participation fee is 200-250 EUR and will cover accommodation in the manor house, 3 meals a day, material costs during the workshops. They also provide a small grant covering the travel costs which will be assessed by the travel distance and conditions of applicant. 

The school is organized by the artist-run film lab Baltic Analog Lab (BAL) and funded by the Creative Europe project “SPECTRAL” uniting six artist-run film labs from Europe including WORM.Filmwerkplaats.
