Babak Jalali selected for Pop Up Film Residency

Babak Jalali is one of the first filmmakers selected for Matthieu Darras’ new international Pop Up Film Residency.

The initiative is being unveiled at the When East Meets West co-production forum in Trieste this week.

The Pop Up Film Residency aims to combine a traditional artist’s residency with the practical elements of a film workshop.

Jalali will participate in one of the three-week residencies in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava later this year. He will work on the screenplay for his fourht feature “A Town In Patagonia”, inspired by the Grenfell Tower disaster in London in summer 2017.
