The MAC is delighted to once again host the Jarman Award screenings.
Discover works that explore new digital practices, experimental animation and fresh approaches to analogue filmmaking in this screening of cutting-edge artists’ films.
Shortlisted for this year’s Film London Jarman Award, which comes with a £10,000 prize, the six artists present innovative, imaginative and immersive works that each address important topics in contemporary society.
The artists shortlisted this year are: Cécile B. Evans, Beatrice Gibson, Mikhail Karikis, Hetain Patel, Imran Perretta and Rehana Zaman.
Inspired by visionary British filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Award recognises and supports artists working with the moving image. The shortlisted artists illustrate the spirit of inventiveness within art-film, highlighting the breadth of creativity and craftsmanship the medium has to offer, as well as its powerful ability to engage and provoke audiences.
We are delighted to be joined at this event by Jarman Award 2019 nominee Rehana Zaman, who will discuss her work and practice in conversation with Peter Taylor, Director of the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF).
The winner of the Film London Jarman Award will be announced on the 25 November. The award is presented in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery, with support from Genesis Cinema and h club London. The tour runs from 26 September to 3 December and will visit ten venues across the UK.
This year’s Jarman Award screenings at the MAC are shown as part of AMINI 19, an event celebrating artists’ moving image works. More information on ANINI 19 here.
