This special event marks ten years of Artists’ Film International, bringing together artists and curators from across the globe to consider collaborative practices, explore how art can transcend national boundaries and discuss models of distribution for sharing local knowledge.

How have artists from Kabul found an audience in Los Angeles? How did a remarkable film from Berlin get a screening in Vietnam? Artists’ Film International enables moving image work from around the world to be seen by local audiences, from London to Mumbai, from Belgrade to Warsaw.

Featuring artist Ursula Mayer (UK) and curators Kathrin Becker (Neuer Berliner Kunstverein Video Forum, Berlin), Zorana Dakovic (Cultural Centre of Belgrade), Lukasz Ronduda (Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw), Maria Palacios Cruz (Deputy Director, LUX) and Iwona Blazwick (Director, Whitechapel Gallery).

Established by the Whitechapel Gallery in 2007, Artists’ Film International includes 15 global partner organisations. The programme brings together recent moving image works, which are presented over the course of a year in each venue.

Supported by Goethe-Institut London.
