    The Film London Film-makers' Festival Fund (FFF) is now open for applications.

    Artist film-makers previously supported through the scheme include Sarah Pucill, Michael Maziere, David Austen, Osbert Parker, Ben Rivers and Stephen Connolly.

    Deadlines for the fund will take place on a monthly basis, the next is 16 December 2008.

  • FLAMIN Seminar: Music Rights for Moving Image Work *

    On Thursday 27 November (6pm-9pm) FLAMIN and Own-it present How To Clear Music Rights for Moving Image Work, a free workshop addressing issues around the use of music and sound in artists' moving image work.

    This event will focus on how music and sound can be used legally; where can you go if you don't know the author of the piece of music or the musician playing the piece you have selected for your work; the steps you need to take if you want to commission a composer or orchestra to record the music for your film; and the clearance requirements of different exhibition platforms – gallery, cinema, broadcast, etc.

    Speakers will include artist film-maker Miranda Pennell, Solicitor Anne Crompton (from Music Group, Harbottle & Lewis LLP) and Joyce Cronin, Gallery Manager (Exhibitions), Matt's Gallery.

    Visit the Own-it website for more information and to book a place.
  • LAFVA Screening at BFI Southbank: Más Se Perdío *

    On Monday 1 December (8.30pm) the latest in the ongoing series of FLAMIN-supported artist screenings at BFI Southbank will present Stephen Connolly's 2008 LAFVA-funded film Más Se Perdío (work in progress). This film will be shown alongside three other works which form part of Connolly's ongoing Afflicted States project.

    Connolly's Más Se Perdío structurally unites a series of historical and cultural references including footage of Havana's derelict National School of Ballet, young athletes at an outdoor stadium and street scene of Cuban construction workers – the latter in reference to Chris Marker's film Letter from Siberia (1957).

    Critic and curator, Sacha Craddock, will introduce the screenings and will host a discussion with Stephen Connolly.
