The leading makers of artists’ moving image


Sophie Cundale, The Near Room, 2020

This forthcoming film from artist Sophie Cundale is a supernatural melodrama about loss that follows the journey of a professional boxer after a near-fatal knockout. 


Helen Cammock, Concrete Feathers and Porcelain Tacks, 2020

A new film from Turner-prize nominee Helen Cammock will begin with an act of redistribution: the artist, together with Rochdale residents, will place items from Touchstones' art collection into people’s homes on a temporary basis.


Georgina Starr, Quarantaine, 2020

Follow the story of two new recruits to a clandestine sisterhood whose pursuit of esoteric knowledge takes place in a secret place of instruction, cut off from the world outside.


Patrick Hough, The Black River of Herself, 2020

Currently in early stages of production, The Black River of Herself brings to life a fictional Irish Bog Body – an ancient corpse naturally preserved over thousands of years in Ireland’s peat bog lands.


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.
