The 15th edition of the Residence includes four female and two male directors who will take part in receiving assistance with scripting their first or second feature films as well as actual preparation for production. This year's six include: Emily Atef with her second feature, "Kill Me" (Iran); Xiaolu Guo with second feature "UFO in Her Eyes" (China); Pia Marais with second feature, "The Unpolished" (Sweden); Hagar Ben Asher with first feature, "Tama" (Israel); Ruben Imaz Castro with second feature, "The Tourist" (Mexico); and Barnwell Elliott, with first feature, "Bound" (USA).
