In 2017, we launched a new initiative in partnership with design studio Edgar Allan, FILMER. We are commissioning filmmakers to create a series of new short portrait films of our artists in residence. These films will illuminate something of the artist’s person and process, while also showcasing new work by talented Atlanta-based filmmakers. We are giving the filmmakers full creative control over these films, honoring them as the artists they are. In this way, we are commissioning artists to make work about other artists. The films will be valuable artifacts for AIR Serenbe, the artists, the filmmakers, our funding partners, the city of Atlanta, the state of Georgia, and the field of contemporary art. At year's end, we premiere the commissioned short films to a live audience. We will screen the films back-to-back in the style of a shorts mini-festival.
