Introducing The FLAMIN Fellowship, a new scheme supporting early-career artist filmmakers
Date posted: 26.07.2017
We're pleased to announce a brand new development and commissioning scheme for early-career artist filmmakers: The FLAMIN Fellowship.
Conceived by Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) and supported by Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust, the Fellowship is set to enhance FLAMIN's existing role at the heart of UK moving image work by identifying and nurturing the brightest emerging talent making strides in this exciting field.
The initiative will support six UK-based artist filmmakers, offering seed production finance of £2,500 for a specific project, along with a programme of targeted workshops; professional mentoring and access to curators and potential supporters.
Applicants should have a track record working with moving image; have shown their work in an art world context and demonstrate a commitment to experimenting and innovating within the field. All applicants should have a proposal for a new piece of moving image work, either at concept stage or in development.
Applications close at 5pm on 25 September 2017.
Adrian Wootton OBE, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, said: "FLAMIN has a long track record when it comes to working with established artist filmmakers like Mark Leckey, Laure Prouvost, Larissa Sansour and Ben Rivers - individuals with flair, vision and a passion for innovation. I'm pleased that we'll now be working with early-career artists who show the same kind of promise and spirit - this is a rare chance for those cutting their teeth in sector to secure funding, receive expert mentoring and, we hope, follow in the footsteps of some truly boundary-pushing filmmakers. I'd like to thank Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust for their help and support, and I look forward to announcing the six filmmakers we select for this exciting new scheme."
