You apply with:

  • An A4 page where you briefly describe who you are and what you would like to work with during a residency period at Manusfabriken. The text must contain a short idea description of a project (film or TV series) as well as a short presentation of how you want to post your work. Also specify which period (spring or autumn) you wish to sit.
  • Your CV.
  • The application is emailed to Niclas Ekström at
  • Please note that we do not read any submitted scripts or project descriptions. Any questions are answered by Niclas Ekström.

The residency is free of charge.
