Now in its second year, the HIVE Lab encourages artists and filmmakers to explore the screen as a medium for creative expression. First held in 2011 within the Adelaide Film Festival, the residential lab brought together talented artists from film, music, theatre, performing and the visual arts including Meryl Tankard, Michael Kantor, Richard Tognetti and Gideon Obarzanek, and introduced filmmakers to creative development methodologies and potential collaborators from other forms of art.

2012 sees the HIVE Lab operate as part of the Melbourne Festival, which runs from 11 – 27 October across various sites and locations.

The 2012 HIVE Lab is seeking applications from individual Australian artists and filmmakers who are established in their creative practice and have an early stage film-based project they wish to explore in the context of this Lab. Participation is free and travel and accommodation will be provided for interstate participants.

Deadline for entries is Monday 13 August.
