Through a partnership with the New Orleans Video Access Center (NOVAC), artists-in-residence are required to lead one weekend-long workshop, presenting to local aspiring youth artists and working filmmakers. This presentation will be tailored to the specific expertise of the artist and will be fully supported and designed in collaboration with NOVAC and Court 13. These workshops are an important opportunity for direct connection between artists-in-residence and students & working filmmakers in New Orleans. 

Court 13 will partner with film, construction, and art organizations in New Orleans to provide supplemental materials, and we will work closely with the two finalists to ensure that all budgetary and material needs are met. 

The Fall Residencies will last 7 weeks: October 29 to December 14, 2018. Resident-artists are encouraged to utilize in-house tools (wood shop, welders, basic hand tools) and materials, as well as donated and recycled materials from our external film work and community partnerships. Our facilities are a comprised of approximately 8,000 square feet of raw workshop space and a 14,000-square-foot yard.  A blueprint of our property is included, with spaces available for film-set proposals and dimensions marked in blue. A jury of experts in various arts-related fields will judge the proposals on narrative concept and ambition, as well as feasibility within the confines of the physical space and budgetary limits.
