Early-Career Artists Selected for FLAMIN Fellowship Development Scheme
Date posted: 03.07.2019
Six early-career artist-filmmakers have been selected for the second edition of Film London’s FLAMIN Fellowship scheme, a development programme offering mentoring, seed finance and professional development alongside access to audiences, curators and established artist advisors.
With an expansive and innovative approach to the moving image spanning CG animation, projection-mapping, live action and found footage, the artists explore timely subjects from national identity and theatricality to queerness and social-racial dynamics. The selected artists are:
· Hazel Brill
· Max Colson
· Maud Craigie
· Milo Creese
· Antonia Luxem
· Jennifer Martin
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 core of the UK’s moving image ecology. With a focus on early-career practitioners, The Fellowship complements FLAMIN’s wide-ranging programme supporting mid- and later-career artists through FLAMIN Productions, the Film London Jarman Award and a range of significant development opportunities.
Adrian Wootton OBE, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, said: “The pilot edition of The FLAMIN Fellowship was a great success, with the six exceptional early-career artists progressing onto a number of high profile exhibitions, international festivals and award wins. We’re excited to work with this year’s outstanding group and support them to make a step-change in their practice over the next 12 months and beyond. Our thanks go to Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust for their support on The Fellowship, through which we aim to nurture and champion a new generation of moving image artists.”
Previous contributors to The FLAMIN Fellowship development workshop programme include artists Heather Phillipson, Marianna Simnett and Noor Afshan Mirza, as well as representatives from organisations including Tate, LUX, BFI, Arts Council England and the Wellcome Trust. The selected artists will present new work in progress at a special event later in 2019, which will be announced on the FLAMIN website.
