Daily screenings open to all

A film festival celebrating artists’ moving image work has opened at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

All week until Friday 27 March, visitors can attend daily screenings at 6.00pm in the University’s Hanover Building of moving image artwork and short films by five curators of moving image programmes.

Selected from an open call, The Programme film festival attempts to rethink what the artists’ film programme can be today. On the internet people watch current and historically important moving image artworks individually. While in the gallery and group exhibition, singular works produced to very high standards are shown. With this emphasis on viewing solo works, can the artists’ moving image programme be reimagined for the present moment?

The festival includes moving image artworks and short films by Peter Barnard, Danielle Cunningham, Tao Lashley-Burnley, Amelia Crouch, Rozaliya Dimitrova, Ilhami Tunç Gençer, Till Gombert, Isa Gress, Kirk Lake, Michael Lyons, Amy McKenny, Shehrezad Maher, Harry Meadley, Heather Ross, David Steans, and many more.

The event is part of the Hanover Project and runs daily until Friday 27 March. For more information please contact Claire Hope on
