Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network
Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) supports London-based artists working in moving image, working in partnership to deliver a comprehensive programme including production award schemes, regular
screenings, talks and events, as well as the prestigious annual Film London Jarman Award.
The Jarman Award honours the legacy of avant-garde film-maker Derek Jarman. It recognises and rewards the exceptional creativity of today’s UK artist film-makers whose work, like Jarman’s, resists conventional definition.
