Curated by four of the UK’s foremost artists working in moving image, Selected brings together some of the best new emerging artists’ film and video to audiences. Shortlisted artists for the 2010 Film London Jarman Award – Ben Rivers, Emily Wardill, Zineb Sedira and Spartacus Chetwynd – have selected work by up-and-coming, fresh filmmaking talent, to develop an invigorating new programme of work.
Throughout May and June Selected will be touring to six venues in England and Scotland, and will include talks by filmmakers giving introductions to their work, and the process of making new film and video.
Artists in the programme include: Gabriel Abrantes & Daniel Schmidt; Zoe Brown; Sebastian Buerkner; Joel Furness; Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow; Piotr Krzymowski; Asta Lynge; Chooc Ly Tan; Michael Robinson; Ben Russell; and Tilly Shiner.
Selected has been produced in partnership with videoclub and Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), with the aim of showcasing and celebrating some of the most innovative emerging talent in artists’ moving image.
Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network
Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) supports London-based artists working in moving image, working in partnership to deliver a comprehensive programme including production award schemes, regular screenings, talks and events, as well as the prestigious annual Film London Jarman Award. The Jarman Award honours the legacy of avant-garde film-maker Derek Jarman. It recognises and rewards the exceptional creativity of today’s UK artist film-makers whose work, like Jarman’s, resists conventional definition.
