Part of Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), FLAMIN Productions aims to support the most exciting, innovative and challenging moving image projects with development, production finance and bespoke mentoring opportunities.
FLAMIN Productions is the only scheme of its kind in the UK. It commissions new, important and substantial moving image artworks that are ambitious in premise and duration, with an emphasis on projects that have strong potential for national and international exhibition and distribution.
FLAMIN Productions will be investing production funding through awards of £30,000 each for up to three projects.
Commissions will form part of a group of works supported through this scheme since 2009 by artists including: Zarina Bhimji, Sebastian Buerkner, Phil Coy, Jasmina Cibic, Beatrice Gibson, Charlotte Ginsborg, Anja Kirschner & David Panos, Hilary Koob-Sassen, Mark Leckey, Simon Martin, Ursula Mayer, Noor Afshan Mirza & Brad Butler, Roz Mortimer, Uriel Orlow, Gail Pickering, Elizabeth Price, Laure Prouvost, Rachel Reupke, Ben Rivers, Larissa Sansour, Grace Schwindt, Paul Simon Richards, Sarah Turner, Emily Wardill and Jane & Louise Wilson.
FLAMIN Productions supports mid-career London-based artists who have a track record of working with moving image. Projects will be supported that are at concept stage or in development, demonstrate a shift or step forward in an artist’s practice and stand to benefit from the support that FLAMIN Productions can offer.
Successful applicants will be expected to undertake a period of development of up to six months to work up a full budget, schedule, proposal, and address any feasibility and rights issues. FLAMIN will provide each filmmaker with a development bursary of £1,000 during this period and up to four days of mentoring and advice from external mentors. Awardees will have access to the FLAMIN team and other Film London staff for advice and guidance at all stages of development and production.
Selected film projects will need to be completed by August 2021 or before.
FLAMIN Productions is supported by Film London in partnership with Arts Council England, London.
