Film London Jarman Award Screening with Margaret Salmon Q&A

Enjoy a screening of works from the artists at the forefront of experimentation in filmmaking today – the shortlist of this year’s Film London Jarman Award. Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Jasmina Cibic, Lawrence Lek, Daria Martin, Hardeep Pandhal and Margaret Salmon present innovative, entertaining and diverse films that tackle the world’s big topics.

Inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman, the Award recognises and supports artists working with moving image. The selection from this year’s shortlist once again illustrates the spirit of imagination and inventiveness within the medium, with works that explore both new practices in relation to digital image making and fresh approaches to traditional filmmaking.

From a sci-fi 3D presentation of the future, to a circus sideshow; from lurid comic-strip style animation to rich 35mm; and from a modernist architectural gem to Grand Theft Auto, these artists employ different tactics to express their engagement with important political topics.

The winner of the Jarman Award will be announced in November. The award is presented in association with Channel 4 and the Whitechapel Gallery, with support from Genesis Cinema.

We are excited to welcome filmmaker Margaret Salmon to DCA for a Q&A at this screening. Margaret’s new exhibition will open in DCA Galleries this December.

Please note: this event takes place on a different date as that previously advertised in our printed Cinema Guide.
