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. 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.
