The Bristol Mean Time residency was a collaborative project between Film London Artists' Moving Image Network and Picture This.

The residency was designed to give a London-based artist the opportunity to undertake a three month moving image residency based in Bristol, and to develop a new moving image work in a unique supportive and creative environment. The residency programme offers curatorial and technical mentoring and support and accommodation, with access to full production, post-production and exhibition technology, studio and office space at Picture This.
