The leading makers of artists’ moving image


Nadeem Din-Gabisi, MASS, (2020)

Focusing our attention on the invisible transmission of radio waves within the urban environment, MASS embodies an intangible ‘spirit’ or ‘signal’ that characterises various aspects of contemporary Black experience. World premiere on FVU Watch until 18 June 2020.


Open House

For the duration of the current lockdown, the FVU team will be on hand each Wednesday afternoon between 2-5pm for free informal advice sessions online.


Ben Rivers, Things

Reflecting on the artist's immediate surroundings, Things is a fragmentary diary of what caught Ben Rivers' eye when he was invited to focus within his own four walls for the group project Stay Where You Are.


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.
