The leading makers of artists’ moving image
A new opportunity, intended to enable people from low-income backgrounds to pursue curatorial careers in the arts. Join FVU as a guest curator, working to develop and realise a project in the field of artists’ moving image.
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 call opportunity per year. Please sign up to our e-bulletin for updates.
