FILM CLUB: 121s with Herb Shellenberger (21 Mar)


Herb Shellenberger, curator of FILM CLUB's “Independent Frames: American Experimental Animation in the 1970s and 1980s” will also be conducting a limited number of advisory project development one-to-one meetings. 

Herb Shellenberger is a curator, writer and producer working between London and Philadelphia. He is a graduate of the Central Saint Martins/LUX MRes Moving Image programme and has curated screenings at institutions such as Arnolfini, International House Philadelphia, Light Industry, LUX and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His writing has appeared in Art-Agenda, The Brooklyn Rail, LUX Moving Image Blog and the anthology Free to Love: The Cinema of the Sexual Revolution. He is curator of the series ‘Independent Frames: American Experimental Animation in the 1970s + 1980s’ which debuted at Tate Modern and the Irish Film Institute in February 2017.

These will be held at The NewBridge Project, our partners on these sessions, as part of their Practice Makes Practice programme. 

These informal advisory sessions are aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice. They may involve any or all of the following areas:

  • Looking at and discussing your work
  • Advice on developing your practice and looking at other works that may be interesting in relation to this
  • Advice on exhibition possibilities, appropriate organisations and events to approach
  • Advice about promoting your work
  • Funding advice
  • Production advice

If you are interested in having a session with any of the practitioners please send the following to

  • a brief description of your work
  • why this session would be beneficial to your work 
  • up to four images of your work
  • which part of the North-East you are based in

Deadline for applications: 16th March 12pm (midday).

All that we ask in return is to fill out a short questionnaire to see how beneficial the session was and how it went.

Herb will also be running the last of our open FILM CLUB events for this season on Wed 22nd March: "Independent Frames: American Experimental Animation in the 1970s and 1980s”. Click here for more information.
