Film London announces scheme for early-career artist filmmakers
Date posted: 25.02.2019
Film London is pleased to announce applications are now open for The FLAMIN Fellowship, a development and commissioning scheme for early-career artist filmmakers.
Conceived by Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) and supported by Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust, the Fellowship enhances 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 early-career artist filmmakers based in England, 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 of 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 on 29 April 2019.
Adrian Wootton OBE, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, said: “We have had the pleasure of supporting early-career artists on The FLAMIN Fellowship over the past year, providing a rare chance for those cutting their teeth in the sector to secure funding and receive expert mentoring. All six artists from last year’s fellowship have told us they feel more knowledgeable about the industry and better equipped to navigate different sectors, whilst retaining the integrity of their projects. We look forward to announcing the six filmmakers we select for this year’s exciting scheme.”
Previous recipients of the FLAMIN Fellowship include Graeme Arnfield, Calum Bowden, Rosie Carr, Callum Hill, Onyeka Igwe and Kristina Pulejkova.To find out more about The FLAMIN Fellowship and to apply, visit:
