The leading makers of artists’ moving image


Southampton Celebrates

Rob Crosse's Prime Time and Hetain Patel's Don't Look at the Finger show at the new John Hansard Gallery in Southampton.


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.
