Filmmakers selected for early-career development scheme FLAMIN Fellowship
Date posted: 16.11.2017
We have selected six artist filmmakers for our inaugural FLAMIN Fellowship – a new scheme for early-career artists that offers training, seed finance, professional development and access to audiences, curators and industry professionals.
The group is representative of the new generation of artist filmmakers, challenging traditional forms and presentation platforms for moving image, exploiting technological developments and bringing new experiences to audiences. Between them, their work has explored everything from history and movement to science and psychoanalysis.
Adrian Wootton OBE, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, said: “Being able to offer a comprehensive programme of support to six incredibly talented artist filmmakers is an exciting step for FLAMIN. We already have an excellent track record when it comes to working with the field’s brightest lights. Putting our knowledge, experience and expertise to use by helping artists at the beginning of their careers take their practice to the next level is hugely rewarding. We expect great things from the artists we’ve selected, and we’d like to thank Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust for their support in developing this exciting new wave of UK-based talent.”
The selected artist filmmakers are:
- Graeme Arnfield
- Calum Bowden
- Rosie Carr
- Callum Hill
- Onyeka Igwe
- Kristina Pulejkova
Established by Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) and supported by Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust, the Fellowship builds on FLAMIN’s successful work at the heart of UK moving image. By focusing on early-career practitioners, the Fellowship will complement a wide-ranging programme that does much to support mid- and later-career artists through FLAMIN Productions, the Jarman Award and a range of significant development opportunities.
