FICBUEU Residency

FICBUEU festival de cine

The FICBUEU Residency is a training program dedicated to the comprehensive treatment of short films in their development stage, in which different prestigious professionals will personally accompany and tutor the projects. The main objective of this training space is to promote innovative projects that stand out for showing a genuine authorial vision, focusing on the script work and the initial conception of the projects from a director’s point of view. Through different meetings and specific trainings, the project takes on a multidisciplinary character that promotes cross-cutting learning and enables new ways of access to production.

The program will take place on the Island of Ons, a natural space in the municipality of Bueu and belonging to the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia. The choice of this location responds to several reasons:

  • To continue contributing to territorial cohesion through the realization of cultural projects beyond the main population centers.
  • To promote the cohesion of the working group.
  • To encourage concentration on the selected projects.
  • To offer a space of calm and reflection for creative development.
  • To favour the intensive methodology of the program.


The project is aimed at achieving two main objectives: improving the quality and viability of works by strengthening a personal vision, language, and tone, and acquiring tools and resources that allow for a multidisciplinary perspective on the production process. 

Taking into account the purpose and objectives of this training space as well as its duration, the FICBUEU creation residency project will base its methodology on three main blocks: personalized tutoring, specific formations, and joint practical activities (round tables and one-to-one meetings) that promote cooperation and the valorization of diverse perspectives.


Each year, under the premise of comprehensive strengthening of the works, the tutors will be renowned filmmakers. During the tutoring sessions, the strengths and weaknesses of the projects will be jointly analysed with the resident participants, with the aim of making significant improvements in fundamental aspects of the script (narrative structure, plot, character creation, dialogue, subtext, etc.), as well as defining the character of the film in all its areas from the point of view of direction.


Considering that in most independent productions, the filmmaker directly participates in all phases of film creation, the residency includes several specific trainings in different areas. In this way, residents can expand their knowledge about different aspects and phases intrinsic to the complete development of the project.


At the end of each edition of the FICBUEU Residence, one screenplay project will be selected to be produced by a Galician production company.
