Arts Council Confirm Funding for Film London
Date posted: 30.03.2011
Film London is delighted to announce that Arts Council England has today confirmed its continued support of the Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) as part of the new National Portfolio of supported organisations.
The news that Film London's funding bid has been successful allows FLAMIN to continue offering unique production opportunities, support and online resources to London-based moving image artists until 2015.
Established and successful initiatives such as FLAMIN Productions and the Jarman Award will be maintained and FLAMIN also aims to develop new partnership projects.
On the back of the Mayor of London confirming £1.3m of funding for Film London last week and in the context of the current economic climate and wider cuts to public sector arts organisations, this is very good news for both the agency and the artist film-makers it supports.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London commented "The Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) has established itself as a leader in discovering, nurturing and developing fantastic talent in the capital and having our funding confirmed for another three years is credit to our achievements."
Wootton continued "ahead of us taking on additional national responsibilities for inward investment as of 1st April, this is a really positive time for the agency and in these strained financial times is something we should indeed be very proud of and is testament of our successes to date."
