FLAMIN is delighted to be working with Brighton-based arts programmer videoclub to present the successful Selected touring programme to American audiences this Spring, with a series of screenings throughout April and May.
Supported by Arts Council England, Selected 3 is a new collection of artists' film and video chosen by the artists shortlisted for the 2012 Film London Jarman Award and brings together some of the best emerging film and video artists from the UK in a diverse programme of artists' moving image.
Shortlisted artists for the 2012 Film London Jarman Award - Brad Butler & Karen Mirza; Aura Satz; Ben Rivers; Benedict Drew; James Richards; Shezad Dawood; Nathaniel Mellors; Matt Stokes; Marcus Coates and Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead. - have selected work by up-and-coming, fresh filmmaking talent, to develop an invigorating new programme of work.
Artists in the Selected 3 programme include: Emma Alonze, Sophie Beresford, Nicholas Brooks, Mat Fleming, Piotr Krzymowski, Naheed Raza, Frances Scott, Daniel Shanken, Cheryl Simmons and Edward Thomasson.
Following three successful editions of the annual Selected touring programme in the UK, this will be the first time the programme has been shown internationally. The US tour will see screenings at major arts venues, independent cinemas and film festivals across eight major cities from San Francisco to New York, including events at the Seattle International Film Festival as well as venues in Washington, Phoenix and Tuscon.
Selected has been produced in partnership by videoclub and Film London Artists' Moving Image Network (FLAMIN), with the aim of showcasing and celebrating some of the most innovative emerging talent in artists' moving image.
