Film London Jarman Award Touring Programme 2015 ** 5-8 Nov 2015 ** Towner, Eastbourne

See a diverse and thought-provoking programme of artists’ moving image and hear from one of the six shortlisted artists for this year’s Jarman Award: Adam Chodzko, Seamus Harahan, Gail Pickering, Alia Syed, Bedwyr Williams and Andrea Luka Zimmerman.

The tour runs from 29 September to 22 November 2015 and will take place in 12 venues across the UK, spanning England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for the first time this year,

This year’s shortlist of artists were chosen for bodies of work representing uncompromising power, beauty and humour. The programme shows the breadth of practice within contemporary filmmaking, from extraordinary documentaries and lyrical storytelling to mesmerising works that interweave glimpses of the past with digital technologies.

Inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Jarman Award recognises and supports artists working with moving image and celebrates the spirit of experimentation, imagination and innovation in the work of artist filmmakers. The winner of the Jarman Award will be announced on 30 November 2015 at a special ceremony at the Whitechapel Gallery and receive a £10,000 prize. The Award is supported by Channel 4, who commission a number of the shortlisted artists to produce new films for their acclaimed Random Acts arts strand.
