  • Rachel Reupke on tank.tv

    Tank.tv sees out the year with a solo show from previous LAFVA awardee Rachel Reupke. The online exhibition will showcase a selection of chapters from her ongoing project re-examining romantic filmic conventions in the age of mass reproduction, including previously unseen work.

    Amongst the works available to view will be Reupke's 2004 LAFVA-funded Tignes a choreographed look at the French ski resort when Summer and neglect conspire to disrupt the views from a selection of 'webcams'.

    Visually beautiful and delicately unsettling her work explores the tensions inherent in the contemporary vista as interpreted by technologies (both current and historical), industry and inhabitants.

    Watch Rachel Reupke's work online at tank.tv.


  • Georgina Starr's Theda in Italy

    Georgina Starr's 2006 LAFVA-funded Theda will be showing at Pinksummer gallery in Genova, Italy, from 7 December in what will be Starr's third solo exhibition at the gallery.

    The work examines the vicarious nature of the cinematic experience and explores the silent film form through image and live sound. Experimenting with performance styles and narrative techniques, Starr considers the movie screen as a mirror and how we use film fiction to explore and escape our own identity.

    More information can be found via the gallery website.
  • Sick Serena…at the ICA

    Emily Wardill's FLAMIN supported Sick Serena and Dregs and Wreck and Wreck will be showing at the ICA until 27 January.

    Emily Wardill's latest film takes audiences into dark allegorical scenes depicting religious iconography, outmoded superstition and slapstick comedy.

    Sick Serena… is a Film London Artists' Moving Image Network and Picture This co-production, produced as part of the Bristol Mean Time residency, with support from The Elephant Trust out of the George Melhuish Bequest.

    A specially commissioned essay by Ian White, independent curator and writer and Adjunct Film Curator for Whitechapel Gallery, London can also be found via the FLAMIN website.

    Full details can be found via the ICA website.
  • Reminder: Look What They've Done to My Song in Bristol

    Following his recent show at Matt's Gallery, Michael Curran's 2007 LAFVA-funded Look What They've Done to My Song will be showing at the Arnolfini in Bristol (until 6 January).

    Featuring a number of musical performances played out against an improvised theatrical backdrop, the work investigates how music and songs become a means of defining our experiences as we use them to relax or inform our moods and emotions.

    More information can be found via the Arnolfini website.
  • The Whole World – Call for Submissions

    Tank.tv is inviting submissions to its forthcoming show, The Whole World (1 January – 1 March 2008), curated by Ian White. The Whole World is a list of lists, a programme of artists' film and video and an interactive online exhibition.

    Both a formal device and a political strategy, film and video that deploys a list as part of its structure often does so with political intent: to subvert hierarchies, to undermine rationalism or to reveal contradiction. In contemporary culture the pop chart's Top 10 has been replaced by an ever-expanding craze for "Top 100s" of everything from Hollywood genres to celebrity gaffes. The Whole World attempts to wrestle back the initiative…

    The deadline for submissions is 1 March 2008.

    To submit work or find out more visit www.tank.tv.

  • Final Reminder: UKFC Short Film Completion Fund 2008

    The UK Film Council 2008 Completion Fund has re-launched and has now been expanded to two calls per year, the first of which is currently open.

    Individual film-makers and production companies are invited to apply with films that have been completed to a rough-cut stage or later but lack the funds to finish. The scheme is intended for films with a final running time of up to 10 minutes. Exceptional films of up to 15 minutes might be considered.

    Maya Vision International is the managing company responsible for short-listing and selecting the films, in consultation with the UK Film Council's New Cinema Fund.

    The deadline for the current call is 14 December. A second call for submissions will open in March and close in April 2008.

    Full guidelines, forms and more information can be found via the Maya Vision website.
  • Reminder: 60 Seconds of Fame – Call for Submissions

    60 Seconds of Fame, an innovative short film initiative from the British Academy of Film & Television Arts (BAFTA) in association with Orange, invites budding film-makers to submit a 60 second short film, based on the theme 'unite'.

    BAFTA juries will select 15 regional winners, who will receive two tickets to the Orange British Academy Film Awards on Sunday 10 February, 2008. The overall winner will be chosen by a BAFTA jury and announced at the ceremony and the winning film will feature as part of the BBC One broadcast of the event.

    The deadline for submissions is 4 January 2008.

    Visit the 60 Seconds of Fame website for more information.
  • Reminder: The Wellcome Trust Arts Awards - Call for Submissions

    The Wellcome Trust supports the arts as an effective way of stimulating debate and engaging people with biomedical science. The Arts Awards support projects that engage the public with biomedical science through the arts. All art forms are covered by the programme, including: visual arts, film, photography and digital media.

    The Trust invites applications for projects which engage adult audiences and/or young people. Projects should involve the creation of new artistic work and should have some biomedical scientific input either through a scientist taking on an advisory role or through direct collaboration. Applicants are encouraged to investigate new methods of interdisciplinary working as well as new models of engagement in biomedical science. The next deadline for submissions is Friday 11 January 2008.

    Pavilion Film Project – Call for Submissions

    Leeds based commissioning agency Pavilion is looking to recruit an innovative film-maker for a new community film project.

    Pavilion is looking for a film-maker to capture the visual and discursive tone and content of this event and to produce an engaging and striking 10 minute short film. The film-maker should be able to demonstrate a highly creative and innovative approach.

    The deadline for submissions is 17 December.

    Full details can be found via the Pavilion website.
