About Film and Video Umbrella

Film and Video Umbrella enables artists to make challenging, innovative moving image works that are a step-change in their practice and that might otherwise not get made, and ensures that those works are experienced and appreciated by wide and diverse audiences.

FVU commissions, produces and programmes moving-image works by artists and presents them in collaboration with galleries and other cultural partners in the UK and abroad, as well as commissioning and presenting work online.

Underpinning our activity is a commitment to touring as the most effective model of reaching and engaging audiences, working collaboratively with diverse, regionally-based venues to achieve this alongside a programme of online commissions, screenings and exhibitions that are accessible for people across the UK and internationally.

A similar eclecticism and scope is at the heart of our programming, which not only seeks to champion contemporary moving-image work but also clearly and concisely locate it within a broader artistic or cultural context, offering practical and intellectual illumination in this vibrant field of activity, and developing a critical platform for the exchange of ideas around the impact of new technology, on the aesthetics of the artform itself, and within the wider culture generally.

In support of this mission, the organisation produces a programme of contextual materials including interviews, live events and creative and critical writing to render the work engaging to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.

Via these activities FVU aims to enable artists to make critically engaging works, that are innovative and challenging, and that enable a progression in those artists’ careers.
