Rough Cut sessions offer an ongoing opportunity for film artists to present and receive feedback on works-in-progress. These semi-public events take place with a group of peers as well as a selected guest (curator, programmer, academic or critic) within a supportive peer environment.
Each session features two chosen artists, as well as an invited respondent, and artists will present works at various stages of completion from pre-funding to in post-production. These sessions offer a useful way to get feedback and advice on a number of topics including production, funding and exhibition strategies. Rough Cut is available to aemi affiliate artists – if you would be interested in either presenting at or attending an upcoming session please contact us at [email protected].
