CIRCA Projects in partnership with Star and Shadow Cinema will present a special event profiling work by the ten artists shortlisted for the 2013 Film London Jarman Award: Ed Atkins, Beatrice Gibson, Emma Hart, Rachel Maclean, Uriel Orlow, Charlotte Prodger, Hannah Sawtell, Grace Schwindt, John Smith and Jessica Warboys.
The programme brings together single screen works by each of the shortlist, celebrating a rich and eclectic array of work and offering a comprehensive survey of the work and practice of UK based film and video artists.
Presented by Film London in partnership with Channel 4 and the Whitechapel Gallery, The Jarman Award is an annual prize inspired by one of Britain's most innovative, esteemed and controversial artists of the late 20th century, Derek Jarman. Celebrating the spirit of experimentation, imagination and inspiration in the work of UK artist film-makers, The Jarman Award recognises individual artist film-makers whose risk-taking work resists boundaries and conventional definition - work that encompasses innovation, excellence and vision.
The winner of the annual Award not only receives a £10,000 cash prize, they also win a broadcast commission - to produce a series of film artworks for Channel 4. This is the only Award of its kind where an artist is rewarded with both financial assistance to enable them to flourish and the phenomenal opportunity to broadcast their work on national television.
