Works&Projects

Works&Projects

Picture This commissions ambitious artists’ film and video works. We invite artists at all levels of experience in working with film and video and encourage a progressive, experimental approach.

We support the making of new work throughout the commissioning process. Projects operate thematically and discursively, venturing into ideas around film and video that engage critical discourses and connections to other fields of enquiry. Recent commissioning partners include Film London; Chisenhale Gallery, London; South West Screen, Bristol; the Wellcome Trust and Whitstable Biennale.
