Quays Culture delivers a world-leading, digitally influenced public realm art programme at The Quays and MediaCityUK, and this year sees the return of our successful programme dedicated to northern artist film.

We are looking for artists and filmmakers based in the North of England who are pushing the boundaries in artist film, producing new, inspirational and challenging film art, to be part of a showcase of work that captures the imagination of the public, many of whom would be new to artist film

The showcase will be held as a free public screening event at The Quays and MediaCityUK in December 2016. Following this premiere, winning and commended shorts will also be screened at HOME as part of the main cinema programme, and a copy of the winning new commission will become part of the University of Salford Art Collection.

The Northern Artist Film Programme:

A General Open Call strand with a first prize of £250, and two commendations of £100 each (deadline Fri 2 Sept)
