Information

This year’s Selected screening brings together some of the best work from early career film and video artists from across the UK in a vibrant programme of recent artists’ moving image.

From Monday 23 – Sunday 29 August, the screening was available on-demand via this page. On Thursday 26 August at 6pm Spike Island hosted a special in conversation and Q&A with Selected XI artists Gaby Sahhar, River Cao and Sam Grant, hosted by Ian Hadyn Smith. Watch the recording here.

The Selected programme was established 11 years ago with the aims of supporting artist filmmakers to gain greater visibility and to bring new, diverse moving image work to audiences. Each year, the artists who are shortlisted for the Film London Jarman Award nominate artists who are earlier in their careers and from those nominations a programme is curated by videoclub and Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN).

The artists for the 11th programme of Selected are: River Cao, Sam Grant, Aoibheann Greenan, Katayoun Jalilipour, Roxy Rezvany and Gaby Sahhar.
