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.
Awarded by Film London Artists Moving Image Network
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 purpose of the award is open-ended – an investment in the career of an individual enabling a period of experimentation without pressure. The award will shine a light on artist film-makers who are to our times what Jarman was to his.
The winner of the annual Award not only receives a £10,000 cash prize, they also win a unique broadcast commission – to make a series of short films for Channel 4.
This event is part of a programme held across different sites titled CIRCA Projects Presents...
