The 2017 Greenhouse Artist in Residency & Showcase of Greenhouse Films

at the Jacob Burns Film Center

We are excited to announce the 2017 Greenhouse Artist in Residency program Awarded by the Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC), which will take place on April, 2017. The selected filmmakers are Ayse Toprak & Ekin Çalışır from Turkey, with their project 'Mr. Gay Syria'; and Sara Nacer & Laura Bustillos from Algeria, with their project 'La Rockeuse du Desert'. The four women filmmakers are all graduates of the 2015-16 Greenhouse Program

The filmmakers will be invited for 2-3 weeks of extensive editing at the JBFC facilities in NY. This is a wonderful opportunity for the filmmakers to continue working on their projects and receive constructive feedback from NY-based documentary experts.

In addition JBFC will host a Greenhouse Film Series, which will open on April 23rd and will run through March 27th.
