Our Exhibitions

This map details the venues that we have worked with over our three decade history, with each pin listing the specific exhibitions shown at each venue.


Film and Video Umbrella makes moving-image works by artists. For three decades FVU has led the way in championing new creative talent and promoting innovative ideas. During that time we have commissioned many of the foremost figures in the field, working in close collaboration with a diverse range of venues, nationally and internationally.

We aim to run at least one open submissions opportunity per year. Please sign up to our ebulletin for updates.

Rob Crosse, Clear as a Bell

Crosse’s work often focuses on groups of older men who are bound into intimate and supportive networks through a collective activity. Their stories allow him to observe the smallest gestures and subtlest interactions. Social rituals are central to this new work created during his time as artist-in-residence at Kingsgate Workshops.
