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, Onyeka Igwe, Esther Johnson, Rachel Maclean, Daria Martin, Noor Afshan Mirza & Brad Butler, Hetain Patel, Imran Perretta, Heather Phillipson, Marianna Simnett and Michelle Williams Gamaker, as well as representatives from ACME Studios, a-n, Arts Council England, Artquest, Auguste Orts, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival, BFI, British Council, CPH:DOX, DACS, Film and Video Umbrella, Forma, Jerwood Arts, Julia Stoschek Collection, LUX, not/nowhere, Tate, Thomas Dane Gallery, Vdrome 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.
