Emily Wardill wins the Jarman Award 2010

A formally daring film-maker, Wardill has produced a bold range of highly experimental and fiercely intelligent yet accessible works. Her most recent feature length film, Game Keepers Without Game, confidently unpacks clichéd ideas about realist television and melodramatic convention.
