Artist's Film International

Artist’s Film International is a collaborative project featuring film, video and animation from around the world. Established by the Whitechapel Gallery in 2008, AFI includes 21 global partner organisations. Each organisation selects an exciting recent work by an artist from their region which is shared amongst the network. The programme is adapted to every venue and is shown over the course of a year. From June 2022 – January 2023, the consortium of  AFI partners are selecting moving image works by artists on the theme of climate.

At the Whitechapel Gallery, a selection of works are screened each season in the Zilkha Auditorium as part of the exhibitions programme. For the first time we are bringing these films online to our website, available for a limited time.

Please note: Whitechapel Gallery’s Artist’s Film International programme will be closed in the auditorium from 11am – 2pm on Friday 14 October owing to an event. The films will remain available to watch on the website.
