advancing artists’ moving image


Now on FVU Watch: Aphonia (2024) by Sophie Hoyle

We’re delighted to launch FVU’s latest online commission by artist Sophie Hoyle, Aphonia (2024), on FVU Watch. The short film explores concepts of agency and presence in relation to aural/oral communication, addressing a need to widen understanding of diverse experiences and (dis)abilities — and how we can create spaces for a diversity of voices to be heard and felt.


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.
