The leading makers of artists’ moving-image


White Screen: Clio Barnard & Juliet Jacques

This month we are featuring the film Dark Glass (2006) by Clio Barnard, shot entirely on a phone camera, alongside a new essay by author Juliet Jacques, who draws on the entwined histories of psychoanalysis and cinema.


Portrait of a River, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen

Based on Larsen's film of the same title, this new publication brings together beautiful photography, three new essays and transcripts of interviews, overheard conversations and river shanties.


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. Applications are currently open for the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017 until 1pm on Friday 11 March 2016.

FVU Recommends

Daria Martin, At The Threshold 

This short film is inspired by the artist's research into mirror-touch synaesthesia, a condition where people feel a physical sensation on their own body when they see another person or object being touched. The artist's work aims to capture some of these feelings and ideas through its articulation in the medium of 16mm film.
