The Cherries : Eye Research Labs Awards 2022

Eye Research Labs Awards 2022

Students from the academies taking part in the Research Labs get to grips with work by students from the audio-visual departments of other art academies and universities. The winner gets to compile their very own evening in Eye.

This is going to be a long day in Eye. From ten in the morning until ten in the evening, new talent from the audio-visual courses will be allocated space to show their work. A student jury of 'Cherry Pickers' will award a 'Cherries' for best curated program, the most surprising work, the most urgent work, and a 'Wild Cherry'.

Each academy will make an hour-long presentation; the winning film will be screened in one of the filmmuseum’s state-of-the-art cinemas.

But that’s not all: later in the year, one of the winners gets to compile an evening as part of the Badlands series where new film talent presents itself through debut films, discussions and films selected by inspirational makers.
