Film and Video Umbrella is the UK’s leading commissioner, producer and touring partner of world-class moving-image works by artists. For three decades FVU has led the way in championing new artist filmmakers and supporting innovative work in film and video. During that time we have commissioned many of the foremost figures in the field, including a number of future Turner Prize winners, whilst working in close collaboration with diverse institutional partners, nationally and internationally.
In addition to making works, our commitment to bringing this very vibrant art form to under-represented audiences has seen FVU work with a wide spectrum of people across the country, including youth groups, organisations specialised in working with people with disabilities, older people and minority ethnic groups. We are expanding FVU's outreach and education work in 2018 – 2022.
We are proud to be recognised as a National Portfolio Organisation by Arts Council England, but each year we need to raise a further £400k from other sources to support the full ambition of our artistic programme and to take our artworks to more communities across the UK.
