Three FVU commissions are included in this year's Estuary festival in Tilbury. Join us there for films by Lavinia Greenlaw, Jem Finer and Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen, as well as artist talks.
The leading makers of artists’ moving-image
Premiering simultaneously at The Photographers’ Gallery, London and Okayama Art Summit in Japan, Simon Fujiwara’s new film is a portrait of his former art teacher Joanne, made in creative collaboration with her.
In her first work using moving image, poet Lavinia Greenlaw investigates what it means to lose your memory and disappear into the present tense.
Premiering at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art this October, Jane and Louise Wilson's new work continues their exploration of the resonance of the First World War.
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. Browse our project page to find out more and view clips of the works.
We aim to run at least one open submissions opportunity per year. Please sign up to our ebulletin for updates.
