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.
