Filmmaker in Residence

Caldera + BendFilm + The Museum at Warm Springs

In 2017, Caldera, BendFilm and The Museum at Warm Springs will select a Filmmaker in Residence for the month of March. Every winter January through March, creative individuals and collaborative groups are awarded the gift of time and space at our beautiful Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains near Sisters, Oregon, for monthlong residencies.

The selected filmmaker works 2 – 3 hour sessions for four days during spring break week in March to teach filmmaking to Caldera high school students and create with students a film of interviews and work in progress of artists from The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs; presents work at Caldera’s Open Studios; and takes part at

a “Meet the Filmmaker” program presented by BendFilm in Bend, Oregon.

Successful candidates will be Native American filmmakers or filmmakers who have worked with Native American populations in the past, have quality work samples,

a CV that points to their potential and, most importantly, experience teaching film

to high school students.
