Artist Film-makers Selected for Awards
Date posted: 21.09.2010
Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) has chosen the recipients of the FLAMIN Productions Development Awards 2010. Projects by 11 innovative London-based artist film-makers have been selected to benefit from the programme.
The Awards, which are open to London-based talent, will take the 11 selected projects through the crucial stages of development. Up to five of these will then be commissioned for production at the end of the programme.
The selected artists are as follows: artist duo Brad Butler and Karen Mirza, Shezad Dawood, Laura Gannon, Hilary Koob-Sassen, Ursula Mayer, Laure Prouvost, Grace Schwindt, Jennet Thomas, Eileen Simpson and Ben White, Emily Wardill and Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa.
The recipients of the Development Awards, selected by Film London and FLAMIN with the assistance of external industry assessors, are an eclectic mix of artists at varying stages in their careers. Beyond sharing a highly experimental approach to film-making, the 11 selected works are ambitious projects with the potential to reach audiences via galleries, cinema, broadcast and/or digital platforms.
Now in their second year, the Development Awards are designed for artists to enjoy time and resources nurturing their projects and an opportunity for them to take the next step in their careers. After having access to a bespoke mentoring programme and honing their projects, the shortlisted artists are invited to tender for additional support and funding to take their projects into production.
Up to five projects will be greenlit for production receiving funding up to £50,000. These will be announced later this year.
