I'm deeply honoured to have been appointed Film Artist in Residence 2023 at University College Cork (UCC)...
The Film Artist in Residence role, based in the School of Film, Music and Theatre, is jointly funded by the Arts Council and UCC. It is designed to provide a film artist of distinction with a unique opportunity to develop their practice in a university environment, while offering students and staff of Film & Screen Media the opportunity to engage with a practising artist in a meaningful way during the course of their studies and wider cultural involvement in campus life.
Maximilian Le Cain is the ninth film artist to be appointed to the role and follows Carmel Winters, Gerry Stembridge, Hugh Travers, Mark O’Halloran, Pat Murphy, Alan Gilsenan, Tadhg O’Sullivan and Yvonne McDevitt who have enjoyed successful residencies at UCC since 2014.
Speaking of the appointment Fionnuala Sweeney, Head of Film and Architecture at the Arts Council, said: “The Arts Council wishes to congratulate Maximilian Le Cain on his appointment as Film Artist in Residence at UCC. We hope that the residency will provide Max with the opportunity to further his singular creative practice in the supportive and creative environment offered by UCC.”
Professor Laura Rascaroli, Head of the School of Film, Music and Theatre, added: “We are delighted with Max Le Cain’s appointment. The unique vision at the core of his boundary-pushing work will inspire our students and encourage them on new creative trails. We warmly welcome him to UCC and look forward to his residency”
