The FLAMIN Fellowship


Film London, Arts Council England and The Fenton Arts Trust present The FLAMIN Fellowship, a major scheme for early-career artist filmmakers living in England. Part of Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), the Fellowship aims to support the most exciting, innovative and challenging moving image practices from filmmakers at the early stages of their careers, with development and funding for new work.

The FLAMIN Fellowship offers a unique opportunity in developing professional artistic practice with a series of monthly workshops, which cover key areas including selling artwork, film festival strategy, writing funding applications, archiving your work, sound design, copyright and sustaining a practice. Previous workshop speakers have included artists Larry Achiampong, Heather Phillipson, Noor Afshan Mirza & Brad Butler, Hetain Patel and Marianna Simnett, as well as representatives from ACME Studios, Arts Council England, Artquest, Auguste Orts, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, BFI, Film and Video Umbrella, LUX, Tate and the Wellcome Trust.

Each year, The FLAMIN Fellowship will support six artists at the early stages of their career, each with projects that they would like to develop.

What the programme offers each artist

  • A programme of workshops covering key areas around sustaining artistic practice, addressing the particular context of the moving image as a medium.
  • Mentoring sessions with an experienced production advisor, Pinky Ghundale. More information about Pinky can be found below.
  • Seed production finance of £2,500 for a specific project.
  • Introduction to different production models.
  • Promotion through representation in a touring screening programme, online profile and work-in-progress screenings presented to curators and potential future supporters.
