Artists Moving Image Commission 2020


Artists Moving Image Commission 2020

Applications for our 2020 film commissions are now open.

In Brief

The 2020 Exeter Phoenix Artists Moving Image Commission aims to develop a new single screen moving image based artwork for screen, installation or online display.  We are looking for original and engaging ideas, whether more traditional or experimental, conceptual, narrative or abstract in form and structure. This could either be a development of an existing moving image practice or a new direction for a contemporary visual artist currently working in another discipline, and access to support, equipment and training is available if required. The work may originate in any format including video, digital media, animation or film, but we would normally expect the resulting work to be primarily accessible in a digital presentation format.

Level Of Funding

We will provide a single £1000 fee both as an artist’s fee and towards production costs for developing and realising the project. We can also offer a set amount of in-kind support in the form of free/reduced equipment hire, access to facilities such as edit suites, rehearsal spaces, access to training courses as well as technical and creative advice and mentoring.


The deadline for applications is Fri 28 Feb 2020.
