In addition to its signature Studio Residency Program, ArtCenter will now support two Miami filmmakers through its first Cinematic Arts Residency. Applications for both the Cinematic Arts and the Studio Residency for visual artists are now open.

Cinematic Arts Residency
The Cinematic Arts Residency will provide two Miami filmmakers with up to 50,000 USD each to produce a micro-budget feature. Akin to the farm to table movement, this unique initiative enables filmmakers to conceptualize, create and screen their features in the theater—all in Miami.

Through the initiative, ArtCenter hopes to elevate the city’s acclaimed community of short film creators, who frequently screen their work at major festivals like Sundance and SXSW, into the realm of feature films.

The program will be led by filmmaker and Sugarcane Magazine contributor Jason Fitzroy Jeffers, director and co-founder of Third Horizon Film Festival. Jeffers also is the writer/producer of the award-winning short film Papa Machete, which had its US premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, garnered international press and received more than 1 million views on

In addition, Kareem Tabsch, of the independent theater O Cinema, and Andrew Hevia, producer of the Oscar-winning film Moonlight, who both helped conceptualized this initiative, will work with the residents chosen by a jury of national film experts.

The inaugural two Cinematic Arts Residents will be announced in November 2018.

2019 Studio Residency
The Studio Residency program will offer studio spaces at our Miami Beach location for exceptional visual artists, curators, and cultural practitioners working in a range of disciplines. In addition to engaging with a community of artists, renowned curators, arts professionals, and institutional partners in Miami, resident artists are provided the space from which to develop their practice and are invited to actively participate in ArtCenter’s programs such as exhibitions, studio visits and our community outreach initiatives. Applications are open to artists working within or outside of Miami.

The 2019 studio residents will be announced in October 2018.
