BRIClab is a multi-disciplinary residency program created to advance opportunities for visual artists, performers, and media makers. 

The BRIClab: Film + TV residency track incubates innovative and ambitious storytellers working in both established and experimental forms of media. Three residencies will be awarded to create opportunities for emerging and mid-career media makers.

Applications are now open for the inaugural 2020 BRIClab: Film + TV residency, which runs from November 2020 through April 2021. Applications require a project description, media creator bio(s), and work samples.

We are accepting project proposals in the following disciplines: film, TV, podcast, multimedia, animation, post-production, other (something new and unexpected). 


Please note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all residency activities will be conducted online. Applicants must demonstrate their ability to complete their projects remotely. The health and safety of our fellows and BRIC staff and advisors is our primary concern, and we will resume in-person activities once it is safe to do so.

  • A mentor with industry experience relevant to your project
  • A collaborative cohort community with group critiques and access to BRIC networking events
