The annual Award is inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman and presented by Film London in association with Channel 4 and the Whitechapel Gallery. Any mid-career artist filmmaker whose work embraces the spirit and the legacy of Jarman’s highly experimental and risk-taking approach can be put forward.
The winner receives £10,000 prize money and support from Channel 4 to produce a new film for their Random Acts arts strand.
