Projections is our programme for artist filmmakers, through which we help artists create bold new work, for screening or performance in the cinema itself. We do this to show just how versatile the cinema space is, and to explore the boundaries between film and art.
From regular screenings and live events, new commissions to artist development opportunities, we work with artists to imagine the cinema of the future.
Each month we show artist films, host live events and present new commissions. We offer a range of opportunities for artists, both emerging and established, to create brand new films or performances that are designed for cinema spaces. We want you to experience all the unique ways the cinema space can be used, and to enjoy the full spectrum of film.
It’s also important to us to help artists develop, so we host a regular forum called The Rough Cut. At this evening, artists can show new work or work-in-progress and receive feedback from experts, peers and guest curators.
