Discover the incredible diversity within the world of artists’ filmmaking in the UK, with a presentation of the work of the shortlist of this year’s Film London Jarman Award, which comes with a £10,000 prize. From the individual and autobiographical to the global and political, these films draw us into their narratives through poetry, experimental sound, surreal computer graphics, performance, dance and choreography.
The artists shortlisted this year are: Larry Achiampong, Sophia Al-Maria, Jasmina Cibic, Adham Faramawy, Guy Oliver and Georgina Starr. The programme will also feature a Q and A with one of the shortlisted artists Adham Faramawy.
Inspired by visionary British filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Award recognises and supports artists working with the moving image. The shortlisted artists illustrate the spirit of inventiveness within moving image, highlighting the breadth of creativity and craftsmanship the medium has to offer, as well as its powerful ability to engage and provoke audiences. The Award comes with a £10,000 prize.
The winner of the Film London Jarman Award will be announced on the 23 November. The award is presented in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery.
The tour runs from 16 October to 26 November and will exist in partnerships with seven arts venues across the UK, and a special online version of the Award ceremony.
